Under 11's Summer Newletter

Summer track and field competitions:

These are the remaining IEKAC summer meeting events open to our under 11s here at the club. No pre-booking required (although do let your coach know). Registration takes place at the club house at 5.45pm.  Entry is £3 per event. The times of the u11s races are listed below:


Canterbury Thursday July 23: 75m - 18:00, Javelin - 18:15, 600m - 18:45

Canterbury Thursday August 20: 150m - 18:00, Long Jump - 18:15, 2 x Laps - 19:00


Do come along and let’s support our club and let the children have some fun and experience at competitions (ice-pops provided afterwards)! Better still bring along a picnic and watch how the older athletes do in their races too!. These open track meetings are open to other children from other clubs as well as any individual so spread the word!


Our little runners might also want to go to the following open meeting:


Ashford (Julie Rose )September 16th  18:45 75m (u11), 19.40 600m (U11)


(see the following link for details http://www.justiming-live.co.uk/ashford2015.html)

Please contact me, ( Laura on 07701094486) if you would like  your child to enter this event.

Our summer training programme will revolve around these events and we will be assisted by Jacob Burton who is the clubs newest multi event coach who will be coaching  the children on the javelin, high jump and long jump. Welcome Jacob!




In order to offer the children a full range of activities we will need at least 2 volunteers per session to assist the coach so if you can stay and help that would be great.


A final word…

A number of children are arriving at athletics having had an early dinner with the result that they end up with stitch and are in discomfort missing out on some of the training.. Whilst a snack after school to keep them going is fine please no big meals before athletics! Many thanks.
