For our U9(B2005), U10(B2004), U11(B2003) and U12(B2002) athletes there is a special event being held in Dunboyne AC at 12pm Sun 3rd Feb, that we are very excited about as it is a first local competition between ourselves, Dunboyne AC, Tara AC and Dunshaughlin AC.
There will be 4 events for the athletes to try a 60m Sprint, a Turbojav competition, Long jump from just before the sand for the U9-U11 and from the board for the U12's, and finally a 'middle distance' race of 300m for the U9's, 500m for the U10's and a 600m for the U11's and U12's. All athletes will be competing for points for their club.
Due to the nature of the event many of our coaches will be needed to act as officials so we'll need parents to support their young athletes, help them be aware of what is happening around them eg care crossing the track and not going into the infield where the turbo javs are being thrown. Listen carefully for their event being called, log their distances thrown or jumped and time if possible for their runs. These will be the start of your record keeping for them of their personal bests 'PB's' where they can start seeing how they are improving as the months and years go by.
NOTE This is a juvenile competition with many competing for the very first time- no arguing with officials, applaud every competitor, enjoy the experience by being prepared for the weather.
We'll be leaving from the club at 11:15 to get there in good time to get athletes registered etc.
See you there for a great afternoon of Athletics
