How to join

Want to run, walk, jump or throw for fun, fitness or competition? Join us and get started! Membership is open to everyone. Simply come along to any training session or competition where you will be welcomed by our coaching team and our members. Feel free to come along to a training session to get a feel for athletics before you join up.

Once you are a member, you can compete in Athletics Victoria events. These exciting competitions are held at a wide variety of metropolitan tracks in summer, and cross-country courses across Victoria in winter. AV competitions are not just for elite athletes but the everyday runner as well. You’ll be graded according to your age and ability, so don’t be afraid to give it a go.

Joining the club is via the Athletics Victoria website, in a browser go to and follow the registration process. This lets you join both Keilor St. Bernard’s Athletic Club and Athletics Victoria at the same time, making one payment for both organisations. This process may be challenging at times, if you have any problems contact us via email or phone if you require some assistance.

Your annual fees are used for club operational costs including ground fees for our two training bases, the use of facilities, purchase of safe, IAAF-standard equipment for training, trophies, Athletics Victoria affiliation and relay competition fees.
