Wednesday Yr7+ athletics went ahead, as did Thursday athletics. Continued good training developing those core skills. Check out the photos.
Saturday was our break from the Yate sessions but Sunday was the Cheltenham U14 Championships and the Slimbridge Village Sports event. Bill Smith pulled off an amazing long jump gaining a 1st, well done. He also ran well in the 800m. Tom Smith also ran a good 100m; placing 3rd in his heat and showed great technique in the high jump.
If I’ve missed other please let me know – it’s great to celebrate the achievements of our athletes.
Looking forward; Wednesday athletics will hopefully include some high jump practice. Thursday will include a range of training to include; discus, long jump, hurdles and high jump.
Saturday will be back to Yate for Long Jump and Javelin.
The next competition event is the next U14 event at Cheltenham on 1st July. FYI I put all the links and details for each competition event on the google calendar entry (available on the Juniors page of the website) and Facebook event.
We will soon put out some more info about the ‘Mini Athletics’ sessions. These are for 4-7 year olds and will be on Saturdays at the Rugby Club from Sat 28th July. And also the ‘Try out Tri’ event in September. So keep watching this space.
