ATTENDANCE AT TRAINING
A number of athletes have had very poor attendance recently and should note the club rule, 'Athletes who don't attend for three weeks or more without contacting us re injury/illness, are deemed to have left the club'. Places are then given to those on our waiting list & those who wish to return will have to go back on to the waiting list.
Great to see so many athletes make it back to training last week and we hope you are all going to keep up your attendance level in the future, as attendance levels were very poor indeed during November and December. We don’t expect to be notified every time an athlete has to miss training, but we remind everyone that athletes who go missing for more than 3 weeks without contacting us are deemed to have left the club and places are passed on to those next on the waiting list.
Well done to all who competed in the Leinster XC Championships and Congratulations to medal winners Luca O'Shea Breen 4th U13, Joe Dowd 8th U17 & Troy Scully 12th U19 at the Leinster uneven ages XC in Adamstown.
Well done to all who competed in the recent County XC Championships in Roundwood & Avondale. The Club appreciates your support and participation. We have found over the years that athletes who take part in competitions get so much more out of their participation and enjoy being part of their teams.
RETURN TO TRAINING
We have now been back training for three weeks and while attendance so far has been great by many with tremendous work being done, it has been poor in some groups particularly on Friday nights. We look forward to a big improvement this coming week and remind everyone that we cannot hold places indefinitely for athletes who don’t attend regularly, as we have waiting lists on most groups.
