Established in 1988
Slough Junior Athletics Club was founded in 1998 when our then Chair decided that traditional athletics clubs placed too great a focus on 'performance'. He saw an opportunity to establish a club that was not purely performance driven.
Slough Junior Athletics Club was subsequently 'born' at Thames Valley Athletics Centre, which had been newly opened, and the club has continued to grow ever since.
From those early days we have always focused our attention on developing potential. We have had, and continue to have, our share of international athletes; we produce county champions; we have athletes for whom coming down and being with like-minded mates whilst doing some serious exercise is their key motivation.
Our numbers have grown steadily and sustainably over the years but in 2017 we were able to open our doors to even more young athletes with the expansion of our Saturday timetable. We now have well over 300 young people starting to enjoy our wonderful sport from the ages of 5 upwards, creating a unique and fun experience.
