We welcome all age groups and abilities and are keen for our members to experience and enjoy all aspects of athletics. We’d love for you to try us out and see what you think. Why not come along to one of our sessions or join us at one of our Social Events and find out what we're about.

Hardship and special circumstances
We are an inclusive club and will always try to support our members. If there are special circumstances that you wish to be considered when making your membership payment then please email email@example.com. We will endeavour to ensure that cost does not become a barrier to membership.
There are options for free membership for coaches, officials and parent helpers based on reaching a certain criteria (ie regularly helping out) and complying with club policies. Any applications are subject to approval by the Committee. The Committee may approach such helpers from time to time to offer free membership.
Whilst WADAC try and ensure that only registered photographers take photos at club events, because of the open nature of athletics, parents should understand and accept that their children may be photographed at the track and other venues. Whilst it is not practical for WADAC to restrict photography at open events or subsequent publication, any photograph that appears on the WADAC website will be removed if requested.
Clubmark is the universally acknowledged cross sport accreditation scheme for community sports Clubs. Demonstrating WADAC provides the right environment which ensures the welfare of members and encourages everyone to enjoy sport and stay involved throughout their lives.
