Membership

Junior Membership of Orkney Athletic Club is open to anyone aged between 9 – 18 years. ALL membership enquiries should be forwarded in the first instance to the Club Membership Co-ordinator at membership@orkneyathleticclub.co.uk or via the ‘Enquiries’ page on the website.

Weekly training sessions for school aged athletes currently attract over 100 young athletes. Due to the demand for places, we cannot guarantee automatic entry for everyone (particularly those aged 9-11 years).

In order to address this issue, the club operates a Waiting List Policy and the minimum age at which you can join the list is 9 years old.

Once your child has reached 9 years of age, contact the Club Membership Co-ordinator who will be able to update you on the current membership situation and add your child’s name to the waiting list.

The Club try to facilitate two intakes each year, usually around April and October, however this can vary depending on coaching capacity.

For children under 9 years of age who are keen to try Athletics, the Pickaquoy Centre offer Run, Jump, Throw sessions as part of their Junior Programme. OAC strongly encourage younger athletes to join this programme in order to gain an early understanding of the fundamental athletic skills which will be further developed within the club structure. Contact the Pickaquoy Centre directly for more information on these sessions.

 

Senior Membership of Orkney Athletic Club is open to anyone aged 19 years and above who wishes to represent the club at competitions and events.

Please note that the club does not currently offer regular training sessions to Senior Membership athletes.
