Open meetings & Important dates

Open meetings and competitions 2017

As we move away from the cross country season and into the track and field season there are many open competitions available to our athletes. With open competitions you, as parents, make the entry and payment to the organisers, some of these are before the event and some are on the day. You then take your athlete along to the event, preferably in a club vest so you can spot them easily – essential for U13 upwards. These events are a great way for your athlete to see what events they like and also to experience competing against other athletes. They are a great introduction into competitions. Here are a few links for upcoming competitions in our area:
