A bit late again sorry, lots of organising underway
Well clearly the highlight of this week was the DRC Juniors 2018 Summer Athletics Championship. I saw some great running, hurdles, long jump, speed bounce and javelin and I saw some juniors trying out some events that were new to them. There were slightly fewer adults competing this year (will have to work on that for next year!). And to finish off the BBQ was very welcome.
So as I said at the time, these events do not happen without the support from the coaches and parents. So to everyone that helped and supported the event a HUGE thank you.
So looking forward:
- Mini Athletics – registration now closed.
- Advanced Athletics – cancelled (but Dave has organised one final Wednesday session (01/08) for our older junior athletes).
- Celebratory event (Cotswold Water Park/Go Ape etc.) date to be confirmed – planning in progress.
Normal athletics programmes are expected to resume in September (Wednesdays 6.15 for yr7+, Thursdays 6.30 for all and Saturdays time tbc for all).
The DRC Juniors committee will be meeting soon, if you would like to get more involved please let me know, we could always do with more help from coaching, to looking after some of our admin (e.g. membership details), to organising events.
Keep cool in this hot weather and enjoy the start of the holidays.
