Our Ethos...


We are a UK Athletics affiliated club providing a high quality athletics education to young athletes in South Wales through a blend of coaching, training and classroom based activities. We offer competition opportunities across all disciplines in both track & field and cross country.

We strive to provide quality and professionalism to the athletics experience in a safe and fun environment. Our athletes are all competitive and represent the club in various Welsh and UK league events. Competitions are a great day out for all the family and whenever possible, transport is provided by the club free of charge.

Our catchment area is the Caerphilly Borough and our membership base currently spans 38 primary schools and 16 comprehensive schools. As such, our children are part of a broad community and make many friends outside of their own school.

We are advocates of the Welsh Athletics modernisation programme and aim to drive the growth of athletics across Wales supporting participation across all abilities and social backgrounds.

We are very progressive in our approach and are always looking to continually improve everything we do.
