Before you Join for the first time - Juniors
Our club is open to junior athletes in school year 4 and above.

Our sessions have strict limits on the number of athletes we can accommodate. For this reason please do not just turn up unannounced expecting to be able to join in. We operate an introduction process that is managed by our membership secretary. In order to express interest in your child joining the club please contact the membership secretary via the details below, stating the following:

1. The age of your child
2. Current level of experience in running / athletics of your child

You will then be contacted, inviting your child to attend a taster session, free of charge.

After the taster session, either apply for membership on our membership portal (linked via this website), or for any further questions liaise with the membership secretary or the coaching team on the night of the taster session.

What does EA affiliation mean?

England Athletics (EA) are the governing body for our sport in England. Club affiliation (us) and subsequent athlete registration (you) to them form part of the UKA (United Kingdom Athletics) Rules for Competition, which govern nearly all races and competitions you come across in this country. Eligibility to enter certain competitions/events/races as a club or individual depends on affiliation (club) and registration (individual) status.

Registered members of affiliated clubs also gain access to advantages including:

  • Up to £50M Public liability insurance cover
  • Qualified coaching
  • Dedicated club welfare support, including safeguarding
  • Eligibility to compete in licensed events
  • Reduced entry for the majority of races
  • Access to club places at the Virgin Money London Marathon – allocated based upon number of registered athletes aged over 18
  • Access to discounted education courses for coaches and leaders
  • Access to Coach development opportunities, including specialist conferences and technical workshops to support your coaches and athletes
