Are you thinking of joining an athletics club? We’d love for you to try us out!

We welcome all age groups and abilities and are keen for our members to experience and enjoy all aspects of athletics. We’d love for you to try us out and see what you think. Why not come along to one of our sessions or join us at one of our Social Events and find out what we're about.

First time?

For adults, if you're planning on attending for the first time, please contact membership@wadac.org.uk so we can advise you of the best group to join and ensure you have a warm welcome at your first taster session.

For juniors (school years 4-11), please go to the junior section of the website for more information on what's involved, or read about membership below.

Becoming a member

If you have tried our sessions and are ready to join, you can become a WADAC member. You can do this via our membership system and pay online.

Senior Membership

Junior Membership

  • Our junior pages have information on the types of session available and information for parents
  • Due to high demand we have a waiting list in operation for school years 4 to 7. If your child is in year 4 to 7 please contact waitinglist@wadac.org.uk
  • Please do not attend a session without contacting us, we would rather welcome you than be surprised

Hardship and special circumstances

We are an inclusive club and will always try to support our members. If there are special circumstances that you wish to be considered when making your membership payment then please email chair@wadac.org.uk. We will endeavour to ensure that cost does not become a barrier to membership.


There are options for free membership for coaches, officials and parent helpers based on reaching a certain criteria (ie regularly helping out) and complying with club policies. Any applications are subject to approval by the Committee. The Committee may approach such helpers from time to time to offer free membership.

Photography Policy

Whilst WADAC try and ensure that only registered photographers take photos at club events, because of the open nature of athletics, parents should understand and accept that their children may be photographed at the track and other venues. Whilst it is not practical for WADAC to restrict photography at open events or subsequent publication, any photograph that appears on the WADAC website will be removed if requested.

Clubmark Accreditation


Clubmark is the universally acknowledged cross sport accreditation scheme for community sports Clubs. Demonstrating WADAC provides the right environment which ensures the welfare of members and encourages everyone to enjoy sport and stay involved throughout their lives.
