Congratulations also go to Lily Lane, Grace Lane, Chloe Sands, Millie Knightley, Nicole Reichhelm and Hannah Richards who were awarded for their outstanding athletic effort over the last year, as well as Roxanne McCormack who was awarded for best endeavour. Better luck next year boys!

Summer track and field competitions:
For the first time the Invicta East Kent open track and field meetings have been opened up to the under 11s. These races are open to any member or athletics club. Just turn up on the day. No pre-booking required (although do let your coach know). They will run monthly on a Thursday on the dates below with the following u11s races:

Do come along and let’s support our club and let the children have some fun and experience at competitions.

The monthly direct debit fees for IEKA under 11’s athletics club were increased last year to the following:  1 child = £15, 2 children = £25, 3 children = £30. This money keeps the club going by buying equipment, paying for coaches and events as well as making each parent a ‘friend’ of the club and to have your say. Most of you have already done this but for those that haven’t can you please update your direct debit instruction accordingly. Could you please also put your child’s name as a reference in the instruction, especially for those parents/carers who have a different surname. Many thanks.

Summer is on the way and so all training sessions will now be outside. We will need at least 2 volunteers per session to assist the coach so if you can stay and help that would be great.

We are also looking to update our database so could you please give your current contact details, email address and dates of birth of the children to either Steve, Ralph or Laura when you next come to a session. Alternatively please email Laura on ljwoodward2312@googlemail.com or text her the information on 07701094486. Thank you.

Just as a note, a membership form must have been completed for each child to receive the athletics 365 handbook, a drinks bottle and to become a member of UK Athletics . If your child does not have a handbook or has not received anything from UK athletics this may be why. You can print one off from the website or get a hardcopy from your coach
