New Starters at Derby Athletic Club 2019-20

Derby Athletic Club has been running introductory sessions on the first Tuesday and Thursday of the month for potential athletes wishing to join the Club’s induction group.

Unfortunately, due to the group being at capacity, the sessions will be taking a short break and no more new starters can be accepted into the induction group until January 2020.

The next new starters sessions will be on Tuesday and Thursday, 7 and 9 January. If you are interested in coming to the session in January please email

Athletes are recommended to arrive between 5.45pm and 5.55pm for their first session, ready to start at 6pm.

  • Coaches can still introduce new members at their discretion at any time.

Please do not turn up at the Club as a new member outside the official New Starter Nights.

Please be aware the minimum age to join is eight years old.

The Club’s Membership Secretary is currently not available at every session; if you have membership queries, for example if you wish to pay membership fees, please speak to Denise Reid, who will be at the club house on a Tuesday only, between 6pm and 7pm.

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 covers the first 10 sessions at the Club. Once the 10 sessions are over, if you want to continue at the Club, 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 we do ask that you contact us before just turning up.
