Tuesday 12th / Thursday 14th December are the last sessions before Christmas. We re-start on Tuesday 9th / Thursday 11th January 2018
At this stage we ask that all athletes get involved in competing. So far only 52 athletes have either been involved in the Cross Country or the Sportshall. All athletes were asked to do one of these over the winter months. These are all low key fun competitions were they learn important elements which will hold them in good stead. There is still time to get involved:-
10th December Gloucestershire League at Katherine Lady Berkley details on the following website; www.athletics4u.org
6th January County Championships Try to enter before the day. Use the above website.
17th December Cheltenham This is the last one before the County Team is selected.
Please email me to let me know what your child is entering. If it is the Sportshall I will forward your email to Elliot Prince who runs this & he will let you know what time you need to be there. As it is a home fixture Elliot would appreciate help with returning the kit to the stadium.
YEAR 9’s ONLY
They may like to enter some of the Midland Indoor Open events. They are all at Alexander Stadium in the HIPAC centre, though the long throws will be outside. Athletes would need to be taken to the event & it is recommended that you aim to arrive an hour before their event. All details can be found on :-http://mcaa.athletics-uk.org There were some forms on the desk this last week.
We recommend that they choose a maximum of 2 events & only one per date.
Dates :- 6/7th January and or 27/28th January and or 10/11th February and or 17/18th March.
Please let me know if they have entered any & the events they have chosen & most importantly their result(s).
The Coaches wish you all a Very Happy Christmas & a Successful New Year!
