Welsh U11 U13 & U15 League At Neath Saturday 28th May

Updated 16.47 27/4/22

POSTPONED: Welsh U11, U13 & U15 Junior League Saturday 28th May at Neath. The fixture is postponed to the provisional date of Sunday 21st August, due to the unavailability of appropriately qualified UK Athletics officials. Apologies for the lateness of the notification, the organisers and clubs have made every effort to make the event happen. We look forward to seeing you all in August.
Steve Hames (Chairman Neath Harriers).
NB to mitigate this becoming a repeating scenario it would be prudent for the six clubs affiliated to the West Division to try and find volunteers to attend the free scheduled UK Athletics officials courses listed here:

Saturday 28th May sees round 1 of the U11, U13 & U15 Welsh Junior League at Neath, SA10 7BR. After an absence of more than two years the league is being relaunched in a new format from what had been an extremely well attended and popular event. Instead of nine teams there are now six, ourselves, Neath, Pembrokeshire, Llanelli, Carmarthen & Bridgend over a slightly shorter day.

When the team managers are sorting out their teams, they must adhere to the new format outlined below of how many events athletes can do:

i. Under 11 athletes must compete in at least one track (not including relay) and one field event
ii. Under 13 athletes must compete in at least one track (not including relay), and one field event
iii. Under 15 athletes do not have to compete in at least one field and one track event but are permitted to compete in only one distance event from 800m, 1500m if selected.
