B.A.A.C is mainly based at Antrim Forum.
We have a long standing history of Athletics in Northern Ireland, and coach athletes ranging from beginner to intermediate level.
We also run a very popular Fundementals programme, which is available for kids aged 6-10 years of age.
Ballymena and Antrim Athletics Club, is continuing to grow for strength to strength.
We have seen a record level of Club membership across all ages from Fundamentals (252) to Juveniles, Juniors, Seniors and Masters (206) and have 25 coaches and volunteers, a grand total of 473.
This Year we have seen some spectacular individual performances, record breaking relay results and, for the second year running , we won the prestigious YDL final which demonstrated superb whole club participation across the U13 to U17 age groups.
Youth Development League
This has been a fantastic series of events across U13, U15, and U17 boys and girls age groups. Individual athletes are encouraged to compete in sprints, distance, hurdles, throws, jumps and relays.
Firmus Energy Super 6 Series
There are 6 Firmus meets during the season held at the Mary Peters Track.
Athletes compete in their specialist events in order to guage their own performance and to give themselves a challenge.
We have our fundamentals training on Tuesdays from April through to August, with 252 athletes registered, many attending week on week throughout the season. We have a lot of parents and older athletes who volunteer to help with training, which makes each session more fun and varied for the young athletes.
Many of the athletes also took part in the 365 training programme laid on by the Club.
At the end of the sessions we hold a competition evening and barbeque for everyone involved, and each athlete receives a medal for their efforts.
These young fundamental athletes are the future of the Club and Fundamentals gives them a taster for the different athletic disciplines of jump, run, sprint, and throw whilst having fun.
