Volunteers Wanted

Can you help? - Victoria Park Athletic Club is run by dedicated volunteers. The club would not exist or provide the service to athletes from the community we serve without the support of our volunteers.

 We're constantly recruiting and training coaches to support our athletes on each of our four training evenings. There is no minimum commitment required and you don't need to have a background in athletics in particular or sport in general. We welcome all volunteers and full training will be provided by the club.

If you would like to be involved in coaching at any level, please contact  Gordon Innes (Secretary).

Gordon Innes "Kenny's Tent" The club has finally taken delivery of a new tent. Following the death of Kenny McVey last March, his wife Kathy and son Kenneth kindly donated a collection taken at the funeral for the benefit of the club. Glasgow Life also awarded a Community Grant of £1,000 towards the cause and a new Vango Airbeam Tent has been purchased. The committee are very grateful to Kathy, Kenneth and Glasgow Life for their generosity. The new tent will eventually be stored at Scotstoun Stadium but until then, can be collected by arrangement from Gordon Innes. You can contact Gordon via messenger or email gordon@vp-glasgow.com There is a video at this link: https://youtu.be/muiCMaTgEh0 which will show you how to pitch a similar Airbeam Tent. A second video at this link: https://youtu.be/Ouf6nTSmK6M will show you how to take down and pack a similar Airbeam Tent. The tent weighs 43kg and comes in an easypack roller bag. We've also purchased a folding trolley to assist with longer walks to pitching sites. Two adults will be required to lift the tent into and out of a vehicle.
