Below you'll find the latest Club Mewsletter. It's been a busy period for us!
It is important that the Club knows the views of its membership in order to progress. In order to build a strong Club with a clear direction, we would like you to complete a simple survey.
Parents and carers of JUNIOR athletes can complete the survey on their behalf, having spoken with them to get their views.
Athletes in the Intermediate and Senior/Event Groups can complete the survey themselves.
Parents/Carers of Under 18 athletes are also encouraged to participate.
Two of our coaches have recently gained their Level 3 Event Group qualifications following Integration Days on the mainland. Martin Leyland gained his Sprints and Hurdles qualification to add to his Level 3 Jumps award. Elaine Park gained her Level 3 Throws qualification.
These qualifications are only gained following many hours of online study and the Club wishes them well. Hopefully ALL our athletes will gain from their new qualifications. The future is Bright and Blue and White!
