How to join Derby Athletic Club?

Derby Athletic Club has run new starter nights on the first Tuesday of the month for potential athletes wishing to join the club.

Training has restarted at Moorways in a limited way and we will initially be pausing our new starter sessions. We will update the website when we have further information on this. If you are interested in coming to the next new starter session after the track reopens, please email

Athletes are recommended to arrive between 5.40pm and 5.50pm for this session, ready to start at 6pm.

Please do not turn up at the Club as a new member outside the official new starter nights. 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 we do ask that you contact us before just turning up. 

Please be aware the minimum age to join is eight 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 trial period, which covers the first month of sessions at the Club. If you wish to continue at the club once the first month is over, you’ll be expected to pay a pro-rota membership fee to Derby Athletic Club.
