As we approach the new outdoor season, it would be good to start thinking how we can get more from our young athletes competing for the club. There are quite a few competitions during the season – from the Youth Development League (YDL), to Avon League and the various open meetings dotted around the region. We need to field our best athletes when required but also give opportunities to those eager to compete. We also need to entice more athletes to compete for the club, whether it be in their favourite event or to fill a gap in the team. We could also do with a few more team managers !
Jon Jackson (Young Athlete Development Adviser) would like to get together with team managers, coaches and anyone else who has an interest in the young athlete track season. The session will look at what we are trying to achieve and start to identify potential athletes and gaps in the team that require filling for the Under-13, Under-15 and Under-17 age groups.
The meeting will be held on Friday 9th March @ Whitehall Arena . An agenda will be sent out nearer the date. If you are interested in attending please let Jon Jackson know.
