Change in training times plus opportunity to compete on May 8

Change to the start times for this week’s training sessions

With the days getting longer we are changing the start time of this week’s training sessions at East Court. On both TUESDAY APRIL 13 and THURSDAY APRIL 15 we will start at 6.30pm and will aim to finish at about 7.30. Let’s hope that we manage to avoid the snow that we had last Tuesday evening !!

After next week’s sessions at East Court we expect to move to Sackville and Imberhorne Upper Schools for our training sessions. Tuesday evening sessions starting on April 20 will take place at Sackville school with a 6.30 start and a 7.30 finish. Thursday evening sessions starting on Thursday April 22 will take place at Imberhorne Upper School with a 7pm start and a finish at about 8pm.

There will be no charge for any of these sessions in April. However there will be a charge of £2 for each session when we get into May.

Annual membership fees are now due

A reminder that your fees are now due and we would ask that that they be paid by the end of April at the latest.

Sussex Festival of Athletics Saturday 8 May at K2

The Sussex County Athletic Association is holding a meeting in May at Crawley’s K2 track. It is open to all Sussex athletes – whether you were born in Sussex, have lived in Sussex, go to school in Sussex or whose club is in Sussex. As we are a Sussex club all of our club members are eligible to enter even if you live, for example, in Surrey or Kent.

You have to enter in advance and more information can be found on the Sussex AAA website. We hope that many of you will take the opportunity to take part, especially those of you who were not able to compete in 2020. (Please note that you will have to pay your club membership fee in order to compete.)

All age groups from under 13s (school years 6 and 7) upwards can take part, although under 13s can only take part in 100 metres and either 800 or 1500 metres races – no field events I’m afraid for this age group, though field events are available for other age groups. Any queries then speak to Lester Medcalf or to one of your coaches.
