Salisbury Amateur Athletics Club was founded in 1971. The first ovals used by the Club were at Creaser Park and then Salisbury North, but in 1972 the club was moved to the current track at Rundle reserve, rundle rd, salisbury south. during 1977 an agreement was made to amalgamate the Salisbury Senior Club with the Para Districts Club at a meeting held on Sunday 7th August. This brought about a quick growth in the senior ranks. The amalgamation retained the SALISBURY name and history while the Club Records were combined. The Green and Yellow colours of Para Districts were adopted and the foundation was set for the successful club we have with us today.

Salisbury Amateur Athletics Club has produced many athletes who have competed at international level at commonwealth games, worlds and olympic games including:
