The objective of Aldershot, Farnham and District AC (AFD) is to help athletes realise there full athletic potential which we do by offering training facilities, coaching and competition throughout the year.
We accept children from the age of 9. The admissions systemn is based on the new members form (which is under the Membership form heading) which will be assessed when received. but as we have to keep to a fixed ratio of coaches and athletes this might not mean we can offer you membership (we would welcome anyone willing to help in running the club)
Athletes of a proven ability (i.e. performance at genuine athletics meeting) and district athletics finalists may be fast tracked please apply.
Potential members are welcome to visit the club before joining.
Coaching is conducted by qualified UK Athletics Coaches (DBS checked). The club operates specialist training groups, although under 11 and 13 squads are expected to try all athletics disciplines.
The club expect all members to compete (at least 4 times a year) and operates in a range of athletics leagues and competition, from local district through to national championships. While the club caters for all standards the club has a number of international athletes.
The club is based at the Military Stadium, Queens Avenue, Aldershot. The main training times are Tuesday and Thursday evenings: 18:30 – 20:30 and Sunday 10:00 to 12:00
