Why should you choose SS Athletics?



Our High-Quality Coaches

The team behind SS Athletics Southend are selected not just based on qualifications, but their passion for coaching and athletic background.


Our Personalised Approach

We aren't keen on one-size-fits-all approaches, and always adapt the discipline to suit the athlete instead of the other way around. We also periodise training based on progression, ramping up if an athlete has a competition soon and taking the foot off the pedal in the off season.




Our Comprehensive Coverage

Our experienced team have all the key track and field events covered, leaving no stone unturned. If a young athlete is looking to train or compete in one of the athletic disciplines, SS Athletics is the place for them.


Our Refreshing Training

There's no doubt that drilling the same movements and the same sports week-in and week-out can get a little stale. Our coaches use modern training methodologies and drills to keep athletes on their toes and training fun.

How do you assess the athletes?

Our multidisciplined approach and focus on helping our athletes ‘find their feet' means that we track progress across different disciplines at the same time, revealing events they excel at and potential weak points we can hone in on.
