Welcome to Southport Waterloo Athletic Club

 

Welcome to the Home Page of Southport Waterloo AC. We hope you find your visit worthwhile.

 

We are a small and friendly club committed to making athletics fun whilst helping athletes to reach their full potential.

 

We have training and competition for all ages, male and female, in track & field, cross country, road relays, sportshall athletics and road running.

 

Our Open track & field meeting in late summer is proving increasingly popular with local and visiting athletes of all ages.

 

For schools, we organise the Sefton Junior Schools XC Championships for years 5 and 6 in March and host a series of 1 Mile races for school years 5 to 11 in May.

 

If you live in or around the Sefton or Knowsley areas of Merseyside or West Lancs why not join us?
