CLUB RULES

__________________________________________________________

Dear Athlete/Parent/Member,

The Togher Athletic Club Committee has reviewed the organisation of Togher AC recently in order to continue our excellent service to our athletes. Togher AC aims to provide high quality coaches, a clubhouse with a gym as well as weekly track sessions. We continue to make every effort to keep membership fees as low as possible.

All members must pay an annual membership fee to contribute to registration costs, insurance as well as the maintenance of the overall running of the club.
