Currently Strathaven Striders offers two different Youth Sections:

  • Juniors | 8 – 11 years old

If you are interested in your child becoming involved in either of these groups, please contact our Youth Secretary Ian Pitt at

Junior Section

Training sessions run on a Tuesday evening from 5-6pm. The winter sessions are held at Strathaven Rugby Club.

Sessions are set up to encourage youngsters to develop techniques across a different variety of running disciplines, in a fun and educations environment.

Intermediate Section

Training sessions run on a Wednesday evening from 5:30-6:30pm. The sessions are held at various locations around Strathaven, with occasional visits to the Running Track at John Wright Sport Centre in East Kilbride.

The Intermediate Athletes are also encouraged to compete at various club events throughout the year. 

This section is open to all children aged 12 and above, and is not limited to children who have come through our Junior ranks. All abilities welcome.
