Some of you may be aware of these competitions already.
Sportshall League matches are on the following dates:
Blackpool, Sunday 10th Nov 2013,
Blackpool, Sunday 12th Jan 2014,
Blackpool, Sunday 9th Feb 2014.
Entry fee £5. Enter on arrival at Stanley Park, Blackpool. No need to pre enter. It is usually great fun for the participants, and they all seem to enjoy it immensely. Results appear on the web. Enter as an Ellenborough AC athlete, and see how many points you can earn for the club. See how far up the league table we can get. (Lancashire Sportshall League.)
Sportshall Athletics competitions are a nationwide event. There are inter county matches, and regional finals etc. We have had representatives in the County matches now for a good few years, and I know that some were at the County trials recently in Kendal, we will know soon how they got on. If Cumbria do well in the regional event, they can qualify for the UK finals!! (This means a nice weekend break for you and your mam & dad!)
Sportshall athletics will be the focus of our winter training program together with the Athletics 365 program.
In competition athletes will remain in their 2013 age groups, so if you ran as U13 during the summer, you will still be classed as U13 for the winter. The age groups available are U11, U13 and U15. If you are 7 years old or more, you can compete in the U11 age group.
Can you let me know if you are going to enter? I can then try to co-ordinate lifts etc if anyone needs one.
