Dear Parents and Coaches,
Two weekends ago we held an afternoon of Sports Hall trials at Kendal to help us identify talented youngsters to form a series of teams to represent Cumbria in the 2014 regional competitions. We really appreciated the support and commitment shown by all who attended and especially those who travelled a long way to be with us.
We have been sifting through pages of results and have identified some athletes who we feel are capable of achieving good results in a number of different events, which is essential to making the team. However, we do know there are many more talented youngsters within Cumbria who maybe were unaware of or unable to make the trials on that date. We do not want to select the teams yet without giving all athletes a fair chance to try out for the teams. Remember we need Under 11’s boys and girls – their NW regional competition is on Saturday19th January at Sport City, Manchester. The teams for U 13 boys/ girls and U 15 boys/ girls we have a little more time to organise because the NW regional competition has changed date to Saturday 8th March 2014, and venue to Sport City, Manchester as well.
We need your help to identify interested, capable youngsters. The next opportunity for any athletes wanting to be considered for the teams OR those wanting to practise some events and maybe get better results by competing against Lancashire athletes, is to join us at Blackpool Sports Hall, Stanley Park, on Sunday 10th November. Kendal AAC and several Ellenborough athletes normally attend this league throughout the winter. It is great fun, with Athlete of the Match t-shirts given out to one individual in each age group. If anyone is interested then please contact me for further information. If you cannot make this date then you will need to attend the second round of trials at Queen Katherine School, Kendal on Saturday 16th November from 1-4pm. ALL selected team members will be expected to compete at Blackpool Sports Hall on January 12th 2014, so please put these dates in your diaries!
There is a small charge of £3 for the trials at Kendal to cover the cost of hiring the halls. The Blackpool Sportshall League charges £5 per competition which you pay on the day. Please let me know if you are attending the Kendal trials on 16th AND/OR Blackpool Competition on the 10th by 1st November.
