If you are interested in joining the club, you are in the right place. This page contains information that will help you decide if Corstorphine is the club for you.
What ages does the club cater for?
We accept members from ages 9 upwards. (If your child is younger we may be able to point you in the direction of a pathway partner where they may participate in athletics then progress to CAAC at a suitable age).
Is the club suitable for me?
We pride ourselves on being a ‘family’ club, and there are many mums, dads and their children training and competing on the same club nights. As such we have a very wide range of abilities and specialities. We have multiple groups within the club including Sprints, Middle/Long Distance Performance, Juniors, Junior Middle Distance, Senior Middle/Long Distance groups. Each training group is overseen by at least one UKA qualified coach.
What should I expect of a club training session?
Each session generally starts with an active warm up. Each group’s warm up differs slightly but they all do so prepare for the evening’s workout. Where the session is planned in advance the coach may make you aware before of any equipment required i.e. “We’re going for a muddy trail run. Bring some shoe’s with extra grip that you don’t mind getting dirty!” You will then do the hard work which will last around 30-60mins. Each session then ends with a short warm down. Corstorphine Athletics Club is very social so there will be time throughout the session to pick the brains of your fellow athletes and regale in the weekend’s achievements and plot for challenges new.
COVID 19. In partnership with Edinburgh Leisure and scottishathletics CAAC have robust systems in place to keep our coaches, volunteers and athletes safe during sessions and at any competitions
