Description

Club Vision:

To create a positive and inclusive club that promotes health, fun and well-being whilst supporting you to achieve your personal best.

About Sandringham Athletic Club:

Sandringham Athletic Club formed 90 years ago and celebrated this significant milestone in February 2020. Sandringham Little Athletics Club was the first metropolitan Melbourne Little Athletics club, forming 56 years ago. Together, the clubs have played an integral role in the community over that period. They have also served as more than just sporting clubs; they have and will continue to act as a focal point and hub for the community.

No other clubs in the Bayside community have the honour of attracting the diversity of people from the age of four well into the glory years of one’s lives. This is evident by the richness of the varying formal and informal community groups that come together and share the space at the Sandringham Athletics Track every day of the week.

The club competes each week in the Athletics Victoria Shield Premier Grade fielding teams that represent the club across all regions during the summer, as well as cross country in the winter season.
