Welcoming new adult & child members over the age of 9 years.

Diss and District Athletics Club was formed in 1952 by a group of athletics enthusiasts so local people could still have the chance to train and compete after leaving school. To this day, the Club is run by a group of volunteer coaches and committee members who strive to provide professional and supportive training sessions, twice a week, throughout the year.

We are affiliated with England Athletics, Norfolk Amateur Athletics Association, Suffolk County Athletic Association, East Anglian League, Eastern Young Athletes League, Norfolk Sportshall League and Fenn Wright Winter League.

We offer training in all disciplines of athletics, including track, field, cross country and road running, to the people of Diss and the surrounding area. Anyone aged nine years and over is welcome to join - from beginners to those looking to improve in a particular discipline. We're extremely proud that many of our members go on to successfully compete at events, from Sportshall competitions to marathons.

Membership fees

Membership fees cover the costs of hiring our facilities, flood lighting, the maintenance of equipment, and insurance. We're pleased to be one of the most competitively priced clubs in the area.

Fees are paid annually and run from 1st April each year. For insurance purposes, all fees must be paid on time. Late payment may result in an athlete being unable to train or compete on behalf of the Club until the fees are paid.

If you would struggle to cover the cost of the membership fees, then please contact us about the possibility of paying in installments. We would never want to exclude any athlete due to their financial circumstances.

Annual membership fees for 2018-19 are:

Track and Field athletes - £95

Full-time students living away from home and unable to attend at least half of all training sessions in the year - £50

Road Runners - £40

Any athletes or road runners joining the Club at different times of the year will pay a pro-rata membership fee.
