Crusaders welcomes children of all abilities who wish to participate in athletics. It is a condition of been given a place in the club that you must partake in competitions.
We are based in the Dublin City Council Sports & Fitness Facility in Irishtown. We have brilliant facilities including an Olympic standard athletics track.
Children must turn 8yrs in the year of joining the club. There are competitions throughout the year (cross country, track and field) and children must participate. Priority will be given to those children preparing for competition.
Subscriptions are paid annually on a calendar year basis. The subscription includes insurance and registration with Athletics Ireland. From January 2018 the subscription will include entry to Dublin Indoor & Outdoor Championship events ONLY (league etc. is paid for on the day by the athlete).
FUN is at the center of our coaching philosophy.
Caroline Crowley Crusaders AC member and part of the Irish Bronze medal team in the European Cross Country Championship in France 2015: “The Crusaders club are fantastic. They’re my friends, and my social life. It makes the world of difference.”
