Juniors Overview

Australia’s Leading Junior Running Program!

Welcome to the Front Runner Sports Junior Program.

At Front Runner Sports, our Junior Pathway has been engineered based on a combination of passion for the sport, many years of senior coaching experience, extensive research analysis and most importantly IAAF literature into the ideal progression of Junior athletes to their full potential.

Our goal is to create Australia’s leading junior pathway with a turn key model which helps juniors achieve their personal goals from improved health and fitness through to Olympic representation.

In the Front Runner Sports Junior pathway, children pass through 3 key phases with overlap between each to encourage a smooth and comfortable transition for your child as well as age appropriate training focus and training loads.

  • Trackstars (6-12 years) – Movement foundations, fitness & health 6-8, 9-11 & 10+ year groups. Trackstars is all about building skill, confidence and self efficacy so your child is confident to chase their health, fitness or performance goals in life.
  • Junior Squads (10-15 years) – The Front Runner Junior Squads provide an opportunity for further growth in young runners focussed on progression & performance. The squad will enhance their love of running in a longitudinal pathway which takes them to their full potential physiologically, biomechanically and psychologically. The group is managed by world class coach Raf Baugh with experienced assistant coaches Jacinta Key and Frank Bowyer.
  • Front Runner Performance Squad 16+ This next progression is for male and female runners 16 years and over, who are keen to commit to a higher level of training and racing. Junior athletes 16 years and over have the opportunity to move into a personalised coaching framework with West Australia’s most successful middle and long distance coaches & squad.  This group is suited to, but not limited to teens who have goals of State, National & International representation.

Welcome to the Front Runner team and we look forward to helping your child develop in the years ahead.
