Northern Suburbs Amateur Athletic Club was formed in Sydney in 1927 and amalgamated with the Northern Suburbs Women's Amateur Athletic Club in 1982. The University of Technology, Sydney joined with the club in 1994 to continue a history of the club contributing to University athletics in Sydney and this has been a major boost. The name of the club was changed to UTS Northern Suburbs Athletic Club.
The club membership includes athletes from age 10 to 90 and covers all abilities with sprinters, jumpers, distance runners and throwers all having access to an excellent training facility with qualified coaches and various competition options.
The club has had its base at Rotary Field, Chatswood West which is Sydney's leading grass track, since 1965. It is an eight lane track with separate 110M hurdles/100M sprint lanes and includes high jump, long jump, triple jump, discus, shot, hammer and javelin facilities. The clubhouse at Rotary Field contains a fully equipped weight room and would not have been possible without the assistance of the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). The weight room is available for members use at no additional cost.
Rotary Field has a perfect setting in bushland on the banks of the Lane Cove River.UTS Norths welcome new members of all ages and talents and offers not only competition but also training facilities and quality coaching in all disciplines of athletics. One of the charters of the club is to assist UTS students with coaching, training and competition in athletics to develop the University as a major power in Australian University athletics.
The club training days are Monday to Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings.
