How To Join Derby Athletic Club
We host “New Starter Nights” at the start of each month, starting at 6pm on Tuesday and Thursday. (Please arrive about 5:40pm so you don’t miss any of the actual training session) Please be aware that if the first Club Night of the month is a Thursday, the “New Starter Nights” will not happen on that Thursday – it’ll be the following Tuesday and Thursday.
The next new starters nights are on:
- November 2018 – 6th/8th
- December 2018 – 4th/6th
- January 2019 – No new starters in January
- February 2019 – 5th/7th
- March 2019 – 5th/7th
- April 2019 – No new starters
- May 2019 – No new starters
- June 2019 – 4th/6th
Coaches can still introduce new members at their discretion at any time.
Please do not turn up at the Club outside of the official “New Starter Nights”, we have a very specific structure for our New Members, as the evening does make additional demands on our coaches’ time and we can’t do it every night!
Please be aware the minimum age to join is 8 years old.
If you wish to join, you will be asked to complete an application form. Initially, you’ll be asked for a £30 payment to cover the Induction Period. Which consists of a 2-month Induction period, where you will decide whether you enjoy athletics. Once you’ve completed 2 months, you’ll be expected to pay the outstanding annual balance of the membership fee to Derby Athletic Club.
If you already have experience in athletics at another England Athletics affiliated club you don’t need to wait for a new starters night but do ask you contact us before just turning up.
