How To Join
We have a free Club Induction session for all new members in order to introduce potential athletes to club and track etiquette. It also gives potential athletes the opportunity to discover which discipline of athletics they would like to explore before committing to train and compete with the club.
Athletes in school Years 3 to 7 attend the Junior Induction which aims to ensure members have basic running, jumping and throwing skills, and reflects the training sessions which follow a multi-event approach.
Athletes in Year 8 and above complete the induction and train with event coaches depending on their personal preferences. Our list of current event groups and coaches can be found here.
Thanet Athletics Club is open to everybody school year 3 and over, regardless of ability, gender, race, ethnicity, religious belief, sexuality or social/economic status.
