Founded by Breda Synnott, Mick Quinn and Nancy Quinn St Benedict’s set out to form a club to cater for the juveniles of Arklow. Within a short time St Benedict’s became one of the strongest clubs in Wicklow competing at local and National levels.
In more recent years Breda Dickenson and Pat Kavanagh have been the heartbeat of St Benedict’s continuing the legacy and offering the youth of Arklow the opportunity to develop, blossom, thrive and achieve in Athletics. This year, Breda was recognised for her Outstanding Long Service to Wicklow Athletics.
Juvenile membership consists of a €20 registration fee plus €50 per term with three terms per year. Juvenile’s must be at least 6 years old to register.
Training takes place on Monday and Wednesday from 7-8pm.
