Development Group commences Wednesday 3rd September

Development Group will start up again after the summer break on Wednesday 3rd September at 6.30 to 8pm, at the Bar End Track.  For athletes who already have a Development Group place , they are welcome to return. New Year 6s moving up from Quadkids should have been in touch with Sarah H by now to let us know which group they are moving to - if you have not done so can you please contact her urgently.

We always need helpers, coaches, and even administrative help. from parents/older siblings/guardians. No experience is required. Further details will become available to the new Year 6s once the coaches are all back from holiday, by the end of August.

During the first session on September 3rd we intend to offer a range of athletics activities to try out. We hope to also brief  parents of athletes starting this group on what we do, during the athletics session, as well as answering any questions you may have.

Wessex League Final Results

The final league positions for the Wessex League have now been published.

Winchester finished 2nd in 3 matches and 4th in its other match, leading to an overall finishing place of 7th place in a league of 24 teams. Given the club’s approach to the Wessex League as one of providing opportunity to as many children as possible, this is a very sound result.

The individual age group standings are as follows, with the U13 boys doing particularly well.

U13 boys – 4th

U15 boys – 7th

U17 men – 7th

U13 girls – 11th

U15 girls – 8th

U17 women – 9th


Thank you to all the children that competed this season and gave their all, including having a go at their less favourite events to gains point for the team.

Have great winter and see you all again in the spring.
