Welcome to Livingston Athletic Club.
Founded in 1972 and based at Craigswood Sports Centre, Livingston, we are West Lothian's track and field athletics club, and one of approximately 150 clubs in Scotland that are affiliated to Scottish Athletics.
The club welcomes athletes, who compete at all standards, from age 9 upwards.
The purpose of the club is to provide an opportunity to participate in athletics, with a coaching structure which supports the continuous improvement of athletes, combined with appropriate competition for all club members.
Primarily we are a track and field athletics club, with competitions throughout the year, although some of our athletes also do road running and, during the autumn and winter months, cross country running.
We are a community based sports club and rely on parents, coaches and senior athletes to help run the club. We are always looking for more parents volunteering to help with officiating, assisting the coaches and admin duties.
As a testament to our success at developing young athletes, the club was named Junior Club of the Year at the Scottish Athletics 2007 Annual Awards.
More recently, at the Scottish Athletics 2015 Annual Awards, the club were nominated for the Impact Club of the Year award.
For children aged 5-12 we also have Run, Jump & Throw Clubs with 8-10 week blocks in each school term. This part of the Club focuses on fundamental movement skills and helps children learn vital skills which they will need as they develop.
