Suncroft Athletics club was reformed in early 2010 under the chairmanship of John Troy, and is based in Suncroft, Co. Kildare. In the clubs inaugural year 2010 we enjoyed a lot of successes which culminated in winning the Kildare A.A.I Track and Field League, which was a great achievement for all our athletes and the club.
In its second year, the club successfully defending its league title and again was successful in winning the Kildare A.A.I Track and Field league in our division for 2011! Based on the success of our first 2 yrs the club was promoted to the A league in 2012.
Now well into our third year we have focused on continuing to progress & develop the club and its athletes success by competing in more events and broadening our event catalogue.
This has culminated in the club & its athletes achieving an amazing 2nd place finish in our promoted division in the 2012 Kildare A.A.I Track and field league.
The club caters for a wide age group of members, from 5yrs and up to our older teenagers, and 2011 has also has some competing senior athletes in the club. We support & develop a wide range of track and field events for our members, where the emphasis in all our training sessions is on making the sessions fun & enjoyable for all.For our young members we promote the development of the core skills of agility, balance and coordination through a variety of fun games & races. Then as we move up the age groups we introduce a focus on the athletes technique development & performance improvement.The clubs early success has been build on the contributions & efforts of each and every athlete in our team, as well as the greatly appreciated support & help of all the parents.
