Information for all Athletes and Parents
Training The last summer training session on Mondays will be 17th August. I am away on 24th August and the following week is Bank Holiday so the track will be closed. Wednesday sessions continue as normal starting at 5-45 finishing at 6-30.
September starts the autumn and winter season of mainly cross country conditioning and endurance.
Shropshire Athletes Cross Young Country League
The League is good introduction to cross country and builds up to County Championships in January and Midland and National Championships in February. Plus selection to school and County teams. Age range is from Under 11′s to Under 17′s. The dates and venues are listed below.
Can I request all athletes bring adequate clothing and fluids to each training session. An extra hoody or warmer T shirt is required especially on the cooler evenings. It is not necessary to train in track spikes. In fact it is not advisable in winter. Ordinary training shoes are preferred. If you need any extra club kit please contact me and we can get some organised. Club colours should be worn at all league meetings.
If an athlete feels unwell take the safer approach and rest until better. If you have any questions or queries about training or running in general please contact me either mobile number email or Face book whichever is easier. Mobile 07957 209635 email email@example.com
I hope you have all enjoyed your summer break and can’t wait to get back to school/college.
