We welcome all athletes, whatever standard, to have a go. If we have more athletes available than places on the track or field, we look at PBs to make selections for each event, but there is usually room for everyone to have a go at something they want to compete in.
Please could you reply to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the following:
1) your name, age group (U13 or U15), email address
2) Availability for this match
3) Your preferred events, mentioning if one in particular is highest priority
4) Events you would be prepared to compete in for points for the club (we need people to do as many events as possible, even if you are a non expert or beginner).
We have a team coach organised for the day at a cost of £7 per person and prefer athletes to be accompanied by a parent to not only be responsible for their child but to support them and other team members. If this is a problem please get in touch.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you to all those who have volunteered to help out on the day. This really is appreciated. It’s a very busy day and so you will all help it run more smoothly. The link to the list of volunteers is here. Please let us know if there are any problems with this.
Thanks and see you on the 17th,
