Just a reminder that the Avon County Primary Athletics Sportshall Trials are on Sunday 20th January 2013 from 1 to 4pm at Downend Sports Centre.
Sportshall Athletics is very popular in the local area with the Avon Uunder-11 Boys and Girls teams (Years 5 and 6) currently South West Champions and Avon’s Under-13 Boys team (Years 7 and 8) UK Champions.
This is the third year that Dean Garrett – Bristol & West Athletic Club’s Head Coach for Junior Athletes will organise the Primary trials in this format as it the fairest way to identify individuals for the County Team and also brings it in line with what Dave Turner does with the older age groups.
Avon will be taking 2 Teams to the South West Sportshall Championships on Sunday 3rd February 2013 12-4pm. One team will go under the name of Avon Crusaders the other Avon Stormers, 15 Boys and 15 Girls will be selected for each team. The boys and girls compete in separate competitions.
For the trials Dean recommends that individuals have a go at all field events and 2 of the 3 track events, as selected athletes for the County Finals will be required to compete in a minimum of 3 events (e.g. 2 track & 1 Field or 1 track & 2 Field).
If you require any further details, please feel free to contact Dean Garrett in his role as Avon Primary Sportshall Team Manager.
