Keighley & Craven AC welcomes all Junior athletes to our club. Our coaches are qualified in run, jump and throw and we encourage all juniors to take part in all these activities. We train and compete in terms of running on the track, the road, fell and cross country. We have specialised coaches for field events.

We have different levels and capability for all our junior groups and all abilities are welcome, from children who are new to athletics to experienced junior athletes. Our club takes children from the age of 8 years old.

Training takes place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings as below;

Training at UAK, Greenhead Lane, Keighley and the cost is £2 per session

Tuesday 6.30 – 7.30
Thursday 6.30 – 7.30

We encourage all our athletes to enjoy the training sessions and, if they choose, to go on and compete for the club in a number of different athletic events.

All children are welcome to come along for a couple of taster sessions. However, it is mandatory after these taster sessions to become a full member of the club. Membership info can be found here

Please note that due to the success of the KCAC Junior Club Section, there is currently a waiting list for new starters/members. Please complete the waiting list form on this page to have your children added to the waiting list.

Please do not bring children to the club without first making contact to confirm when it is appropriate to come along.


Unfortunately, due to a long waiting list and a slow recovery to training from Covid restrictions we are not currently taking any further new junior members.
