Whitemoss Amateur Athletic Club is a Scottish Charity with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR), registration number SC042681.
The Trustees and Management Committee of the Club would like to wish a warm welcome to all new members and those considering becoming a member. We also wish to thank all our existing athletics, coaches, officials and volunteers for their dedication, commitment and hard work.
All Trustees, Committee Members, Coaches and Officials are volunteers willingly giving free of their time to support the enjoyment and development of the club and specifically of all athletes.
The Trustees and Committee acknowledge all of the hard work that our volunteers, parents and athletes put in, especially our club coaches. Quite simply we could not run the Club without our volunteers and their help is invaluable and very much appreciated.
Trustees and Committee Members are elected annually, at the club Annual General Meeting (AGM), to manage the affairs of the Club. Our overriding aim is to provide a:
“Vibrant family friendly Club at the core of our community in East Kilbride, and where local people can experience and enjoy athletics”.
We are based at John Wright Sports Centre, where we have access to all of the facilities needed to run a successful Club. We cater for all ages and abilities from 7 and above, competing in Track and Field, Road running, Cross Country and JogScotland. We are an athlete centred club and all our coaches are qualified through UK Athletics. Their aim is to assist athletes of all abilities to achieve their individual goals and reach their full potential. We have had athletes compete in both the Olympics and Commonwealth Games.
All of our training groups are organised and managed in accordance with the recommended athlete to coach ratios, ensuring all our athletes have the best possible training environment.
We actively encourage parents to get involved in supporting the club and we would ask that you consider volunteering as a coach, parent helper, and official or club administrator. There may be a specific skill you have (e.g. IT Specialist, Teacher) that the club may benefit from. Please remember we are all volunteers and the clubs success and the success of our athletes depends on people volunteering.
We believe in an open approach, and if there is anything that any member of the Club would like to discuss or wants addressing, we would be pleased to hear from them in person or via email to the club secretary -firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Club is here for the athletes and all those involved in their development, and we will do all that we can to assist along the way.
We hope that you find this member pack interesting and look forward to training and competing alongside you.

The Trustees and Management Committee
