Hello and Welcome to City of York Athletic Club website
City of York AC is a community Athletic Club catering for beginners from age 5 years to elite athletes and veterans. We offer quality coaching in a supportive environment providing opportunities to try all track and field events and cross country running. We also have an established disability athletes’ group. We run training sessions at York University in York Monday to Friday from 7pm. For further details please contact the club via our email address at firstname.lastname@example.org
We welcome people of all ages (5 and older) and abilities. Newcomers need to provide their names to the membership secretary (see “contact” tab) and to fill in a temporary membership form, but are given 2 free training sessions. If they then wish to continue, they need to fill in a full membership form.
Members will receive a City of York membership card, and those wishing to compete will be registered with England Athletics. You will also, (eventually) receive a membership card from them. There are 2 categories of England Athletics registration: Competition Licence – all competing athletes of U13 upwards, or Volunteer member – Under 11s, non-competing members and volunteers (including coaches and officials).
