Young Athlete Development Competitions

01 Mar

Bristol & West Athletic Club will be staging Young Athlete Development Competitions on Wednesday 28th March 2012 and Wednesday 4th April 2012. The aim of these competitions will be to give young athletes from the age of 9 upwards the opportunity of competing in a range of events with a view to identifying young athletes to compete in local competitions (under-11s) and local and National competitions for the 11 to 20 age group (this includes the National Young Athletes league for under-17s and the National Junior League for Under-20s).

Registration will commence at 5.45 p.m. on both nights and the programme of events can be found at Downloads – Race Details and Entry Forms – B & W Development Competiton (followed by the date of the competiton as the programme varies between the two evenings).

Volunteers (especially parents) will be most welcome to come and help the club put these events on – you do not need to be skilled track or field officials as there are plenty of unskilled positions where help is required (e.g. raking the long jump pit, putting the high jump bar back). If you would like to know more please contact the Club Development Adviser, Keith Brackstone, at
