The Club welcomes children from the ages of 8 to 16.  We have a number of UK Athletics qualified coaches who can teach running, jumping and throwing.  For those who enjoy competition we enter teams into the Forth Valley League and various cross-country events.  Unlike some clubs, we don’t run trials of ability in order to be accepted to join the Club.  We simply ask that you take your training seriously, show respect for the coaches and the other athletes and make every effort to participate in competitions if selected for the squad.

The cost is £3 per session and after 3 weeks we will ask you to join the Club.  The annual membership fee is £15 (£25 for 2 from the same family).


The club plays a key role in the the athletics development pathway for East Lothian so we have strong links with Team East Lothian (TEL).  Musselburgh athletes who have demonstrated a high level of commitment to training and competition may be invited to join TEL if coaches and parents agree that it is the right time in a child's athletics career.

If your child would like to try out with Musselburgh & District AC, please contact us using this link. We will let you know which training groups have capacity for new members. Please ensure that you provide the age of your child.
