NOTE After their suspension due to Corona virus, inductions for prospective new under 18 members are now taking place.  We are working through a long waiting list so please bear this in mind if you are contacting us to book your child onto one.

All new under-18 athletes who wish to join MUST contact us at the track or by e-mail as above as they need to attend a compulsory induction session prior to commencing training (During the summer months, when athletics is very popular, there may be a waiting list to get booked on to an induction). This includes a chat and warm up session with one of our lead coaches followed by a free training session. One of our volunteers will give a brief talk about the club and answer any questions there may be.

After you have experienced a couple of further training sessions (£5 fee per night applies as below), to become a member you just need to complete both a Membership Form and a Vest Order Form which can be found below and hand them in, together with your membership and joining fees, to the athlete signing in desk at the track.
