Here are the team selections for the first Wessex League match on Sunday 27th.
Some events are oversubscribed but we hope that those that weren't selected this time will have the opportunity to compete in the event in a future match.
If anyone is willing to fill any gaps then please let me know. There are gaps in:
• U15 boys discus
• U15 boys hurdles
• All U17 boys events apart from sprints (but non-scorers are welcome)
• We need 2 more boys to make up an U17 boys relay team
• U13 girls discus
• U13 girls high jump
• U13 girls shot
• U13 girls javelin
• U15 girls high jump
• U15 girls hurdles
• All U17 girls events apart from sprints and 800m (but non-scorers are welcome)
The decision as to whether the non-scoring relay teams can compete will be at the discretion of the track referee and will only be confirmed on the day.
You should aim to arrive an hour before your first event to collect your number from the WADAC gazebo and warm up. Vanessa Lowe will be team managing the girls on the day and I'll be team managing the boys. Please make sure you have your WADAC vest with you. Scoring athletes (A and B strings on the team selection) will be given their letter (W/WW) to wear when they sign-in. Non-scoring athletes will receive a number.
Please check spelling and event allocation carefully and then email me (email@example.com) to confirm that your child can still participate in each of the events they have been selected for. If for any reason your child compete on the day, please send me an email, particularly if they are a scoring athlete, so I can replace him/her.
There is no parking at the track on the day. You should use the park & ride which is free on a Sunday. The university will be providing refreshments to purchase.
We would be very grateful for volunteers to help with the following please:
• Taking drinks to the officials throughout the day.
• Runners to take the results from the track referee / timekeepers to the scorers.
• Help with the following field events. Each event needs 3 volunteers.
o 10:45 - U15/U17/U20 girls High jump

Please let me know if you can help.
Many thanks and see you all Sunday.
