Junior Athletics Training (13-18 years olds)

Our junior athletes (13 to 18 years) prepare for both schools and club cross country championships over the months of September to January. At the end of January, the focus changes to preparation for Track and Field (T&F) events. Our junior athletes compete in both schools and Club T&F championships. We now have a thriving junior boys and girls section of the Club. Our junior athletes have been very successful in both schools and club competitions.

New Rathfarnham Athletics club members

We are a friendly club and usually welcome new members. At the moment we find ourselves in the unfortunate position that we have to restrict numbers as a result of Covid. We do however hope to be able to welcome new members into the club in the very near future. This will be subject to Government guidelines but feel free to contact the club. Updates will be posted here.

Our junior athletes train as follows:

  • Tuesday 6:20PM - Loreto Park, beside Nutgrove SC, meeting at the clubhouse in the middle of the park.
  • Thursday 6:20PM - Rathfarnham WSAF AC clubhouse in Rathfarnham Village (The old court house)
  • Saturday 9:45AM, depending on interest, either the Tallaght AC track or Tymon Park for x-country.
