Coaching Staff

Below is a summary list of our current Coaches, including their disciplines & age groups. For further details please click: Coaches Full Info or Coaches Contact Details

Our club training days are Tuesday & Thursday evenings, and Sunday mornings, but some groups are on Monday evenings, Wednesday evenings or Saturday mornings. See the following page for further details: Training Times

Our club is run almost entirely by volunteers. It relies on our volunteers performing roles such as coaches, officials and general helpers, otherwise it just wouldn’t function. This includes parents… we couldn’t do this without your help and support, either to your childs efforts or to the club itself. We rely on your help and involvement. There is no limit to the involvement!!

There are many roles that have to be performed… Coaches, Officials, Team Managers, Committee Members, including behind the scenes such as maintenance of our facilities, our snack bar, first aid, transport, social events, fund raising etc. This applies to all clubs, up and down the country…
Without volunteers there would be no athletics!

Thank You

Coaches have a range of skills/specialist areas – Sprints, Middle Distance, Long Distance, Jumps, Throws or kids athletics.

At all competitions, we need officials like Starters, Marksmen, Timekeepers and Track & Field Judges.

If you are interested in helping out, visit our track at an event or club training day and have a word with our staff to offer your services. For those of you who wish to get more involved in Coaching or Officiating, please speak to our Coaching Co-Ordinator:
