Welcome to Lucan Harriers AC – Juveniles website

This Website is to introduce you to the Juvenile section of Lucan Harriers. Lucan Harriers has over 180 juvenile members, who are trained by coaches and coach assistants.  At Lucan Harriers we cater for children aged 7 to 17 and seek to introduce children to Athletics – in particular the running, jumping and throwing disciplines, in a fun and safe environment.  Children aged 6 may become members subject to parents volunteering with the Little Athletics group each week.  

We take part in Athletic Ireland’s Little Athletics Programme. Little Athletics is a program designed to address the specific physical requirements of young children. It focuses on introducing the fundamentals (Agility, Balance Coordination) of athletic movement to children in a fun, exciting and non-competitive environment. Little Athletics centres on the use of games to provide fun while developing fitness. Props such as hurdles, obstacles, foam javelins and hula-hoops are used to encourage running, throwing, hopping and jumping.

Lucan Harriers also coach the young athletes in preparation for the Dublin County Board Athletic competitions. We meet and train throughout the school year on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6pm, at Lucan Harriers Running Track.

Membership for 2017 is full.  Please email juv@lucanac.com with your child’s full name and date of birth.  Also note in the email if you will volunteer with the club on a weekly basis as we give membership priority to children with parents who volunteer.  You can also submit this information via our contact form here.
