Interested in trying athletics?

We welcome enquiries from beginners to experienced athletes. You will be invited to train with the group that interests you most, however this will dependant on age, experience and available capacity as follows:

Those aged between nine to twelve will be directed towards our multi event* group for a taste of a broad range of events. You would then select which event you wish to get more focused training as you develop.

If you are older, or have previous athletics background, you may be placed directly into the event group of your interest.

Irrespective of the above everyone should fill out this form and we will be in touch as soon as we have a place for you.

* The multi events group is currently operating a waiting list for both Monday and Thursday sessions.  We will manage this fairly, but we need to balance the clubs needs.

Due to very high demand the waiting list is currently closed to those under age 9. We are working very hard to rectify this, those already on the list will still be processed.
