Juvenile Membership

Applications for juvenile membership are closed for 2021.

Children from age 7 to 18 years are eligible to join, but currently there are waiting lists in operation for most age groups. If you would like to add your child to the waiting list, please send their name and date of birth to the secretary at secretary.gchjuvenile@gmail.com.

When the secretary indicates that space has become available in the relevant age group, you will be invited to attend one or two training sessions to try athletics without registering, but parents of unregistered children must remain at the track for the duration of the training session. After two trial sessions, they must register as a member of the club – otherwise, the club’s insurance is invalid for all members. A copy of a Birth Cert/Passport must be provided for all new Members as this is a requirement of Athletics Ireland, the National Body to which the club is affiliated.

All Athletes must sign in online prior to sessions using the link that is provided in the relevant WhatsApp groups. All athletes under 12 years must be accompanied by an adult to and from the Track for safety reasons.

The ability of a child is not a factor as all children will be encouraged to achieve their potential and to participate in competition only if they wish to.


Annual fees run from January to December and are as follows for 2021:-

– €100 for 1 athlete

– €160 for 2 athletes from the same family

– €215 per family (i.e. 3 or more juveniles from same family)

The membership fee covers insurance of the club, member and registration with Athletics Ireland, and contributes to track rental, competition entry fees and equipment purchase.

Juvenile registration: Please do not attempt to register unless you have been invited to do so by the Club Secretary. Without invitation, your registration will be rejected. Please direct all enquiries to: secretary.gchjuvenile@gmail.com
