Training is available and provided for all age groups and all categories that fall within the ‘athletics umbrella’. We currently use facilities at the Academy Club on Mallusk Road and City of Belfast Playing Fields on Park Road, Mallusk. We are blessed with miles of beautiful countryside which we use also. In the winter months we use the floodlit 3G Astroturf pitches at BRA Sports Ground in Mallusk and the track at Antrim Forum. There are a number of qualified and accredited coaches at the club providing coaching across a wide range of disciplines. Their aim is to guide and support you.
Prospective new members are very welcome to join us on a trial basis, you will be made very welcome irrespective of ability or choice of discipline. So come along and say hello. Please let us know in advance if you have any special requirements.
