With the track and field league, cup and championship season getting underway this weekend for the next 20 weeks, don't forget for all those "off track" athletes there are still a number of local events for you to enter. Please note that most of these events have race capacity limits set, therefore it is best to get your entries in sooner rather than later.

The next 6 weeks are extremely busy. The club is very lucky to have a number of loyal and dedicated volunteers, without their support we wouldn't have all the opportunities for the athletes. It is absolutely essential for more parents, guardians, grandparents and others to come forward and offer their support if the club is to continue to thrive and survive, if you can only help a handful of times a year it makes a huge difference to the club.
