A great place to meet like minded athletes – with a want to get fit and have fun – and train, and if you wish, compete, in a range of track and field events, cross country and road racing.
The club caters for all age groups – with the majority of the club in the 11 to 17 year old age bracket.
We offer training up to 3 times per week with some of the best coaches in Victoria, in a friendly inviting atmosphere.
Club training is conducted at Caulfield Park on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 6pm -7pm and at Duncan Mackinnon Athletics track on Sundays from 4pm-5pm – with additional training options for those athletes requesting specific, one on one, training sessions.
We have a number of club athletes that are State and National level, and 7 of our club members are off in July 2022 to represent Maccabi Australia at the Maccabiah Games in track and field and road races.
