Athletics

Our athletics’ club encourages all abilities to run fast, jump high and throw far – for those who simply enjoy participating and challenging themselves to improve their PB who want to be Ulster Champions. There is an event for everyone and opportunities for all to participate at different levels.

We have a fantastic pedigree in the sport of athletics both individually and in team titles at All Ireland and Ulster level. In the history of the All Ireland Schools’ Athletics Championship we have been listed 8th ranked most successful school in Ireland over the 100 years the Championship has run.

Through the track-and-field-based athletics training program, participants can develop total fitness and the agility necessary to compete successfully in any sport.

Athletes are afforded the opportunity to learn through skill development and competitive settings the ability to make independent decisions for personal performance, setting individual targets and goals. Also as a team member they work with others to find the best combinations within age groups to perform successfully.
