Derby Athletics Club Student Membership

Our training nights are Tuesdays and Thursdays, usually the sessions start around 6.00pm.

Your membership fee includes coaching, use of the track, and club competitions. Students will get access to coaching and usage of the track in club hours and club competitions.

A two week taster to see if you like it before purchasing a membership is available.

The annual membership fee for students is £75. As membership starts from 1st April to 31st March each year, we'd only charge for the remaining months so if you started in January you'd pay £37.50. There is an additional fee of £38 to pay which includes: £16 for the England Athletics registration fee, £2 for the Northern Athletics fee, and £20 for a Derby AC vest.

A membership form will need to be completed which can be found on the Derby Athletics website.

Once we've received a completed membership form we will add/update your details on the England Athletics portal and raise a payment request which will be emailed to you.

How to get to Derby Athletics Club

The club is based at the Moorways Stadium, Moor Lane, Derby, DE24 9HY. There is ample parking and is approx. 10 minutes drive from the University of Derby.

The stadium is easy to find, especially if you use the local landmark known as the Spider Island bridge on the ring road. From the bridge, you need to head north west (towards the Sainsbury’s and B&Q shopping area) on the A5111 (Osmaston Park Road) to the first set of traffic lights, where you turn left onto Moor Lane. Go around 75 yards up Moor Lane, then turn left, go past the swimming pool and follow the road round to the car park. The clubhouse is at the rear of the stand.
