Joining the Club

If you are interested in becoming a member of ECH or you know somebody wants to the first step is easy. Feel free to surf our website and get as much information as you wish. You can see full details in the link below of all our coaches and training groups available:


Secondly we invite you to contact the club by email, we need to know what aspect of athletics you are interested in so we can introduce you to the appropriate coach. Sorry but we cannot take children under 8 years of age.

Lastly come and have a go at a taster session join a group for the night and see what we do. We accept athletes who have little or no experience and athletes with disabilities are also very welcome.

Main club evenings are (Tuesdays and Thursdays) from 7pm-8pm for most athletes & 6pm -6.50pm for under 11′s but training is not restricted to those nights. Some groups get together at weekends or during the week. Training for most field events (Jumping & Throwing) are on Monday and Wednesdays from 6pm onwards.
