Juvenile Membership

Applications for juvenile membership is currently open.

Application for membership of the juvenile club is open to children from age 7 to 18years. Registration is Online in the Member Notices Section.

Children are welcome to come for 2 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 2 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 (members and try-outs) must sign in at the Shed for All Sessions and 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.
