Clane Athletic Club welcomes age groups from U8's - U18s
Our youngest members are the U8's group, which caters for children aged 6 and turning age 7 that year. i.e The child must already be 6yrs old before 01 January 2020 and turning age 7 at some point during 2020.
So, for 2020, our age categories cater for children born within the years 2013 (U8s) through to 2003 (U17s).
These younger members are introduced to athletics through the “Little Athletics” / “Junior Athletics” programmes, where they learn the basics of Agility, Balance and Coordination and progress to learning the skills and techniques involved in the core athletic disciplines of running, jumping, throwing and walking.
Our oldest age group category is U18's, so children age 17.
18 year olds and older can join the adult group.

Queries for children on the current waiting list:
Due to the clubs popularity, sometimes Clane AC have to operate a waiting list for new members. Our team of coaches are constantly reviewing the age groups and coach allocation to see if we have more space available.
Please register your interest online via this link:
Our club registrar, Niall Heffernan will review your application and either place your child on the list, or if we have a place available immediately, he will be in touch with you.
Clane AC is a volunteer based club. We are always looking for and welcome more coaching volunteers.
Having more volunteer coaches means the club can open up spaces to allow more children to train.
Please contact us if you are a parent of a child on the waiting list, and think you might like to help out by assisting our existing coaches?
Full mentor-ship by the club will be provided and new coaches will be sent on A.A.I certified coaching courses and first aid safety classes also paid for by the club.
*Childrens safety is of utmost importance to us, so it is mandatory that all new coaches/assistants/committee members who will have direct access to our juvenile members go through the A.A.I specific Garda Vetting process. They must also be agreeable to attending a Code of Ethics course / Child Safeguarding course approved by A.A.I and must sign a current Clane AC club code of conduct form.
(This is process is arranged and overseen by Clane AC's Child welfare officers).
