Exciting news for under 11 and under 13 athletes (schools years 5, 6, 7 and 8) we have the Tom Pinks Relays and Field events coming up soon.
Taking place on the Saturday 9th March 2019 at the Indoor EIS Stadium in Sheffield the Tom Pinks is a fun competition for young athletes to try out new events and a friendly competition scenario. It’s a great event to start with as the races are team relays and the field events are created to have fun while testing skills learnt in training.
On the track there is the ‘Keeping up with Paula’ 1,000 metre relay and the Over/Under relay.
The field events for the under 11’s are:
Weight for distance, Highland steps, Tossing the caber, Standing long jump, Soft javelin, Standing triple jump
The field events for the under 13’s are:
Weight for distance, Weight for height, Highland steps, Standing long jump, Shot, Standing triple jump
Entry sheets are down at the club house which need to be returned to Emma Rawnsley or Jake Darby along with £4 per athlete. We need entry forms by the 25th February to know numbers; we want to have enough young athletes to be able to raise a team, so encourage your friends to join in with you. For any further details or any issues see Emma or Jake.
