Tribute to Coach Paul Howard

Tribute to their former coach Paul Howard, from Lisa & Rebecca on behalf of the group!
Paul, You've been training us for 5 years now. You made sure to come to all our competitions and calm our nerves when we always over react. You are a great trainer and coach and when we struggle you always spur us on and make us work to the best of our ability. We hope in the future you'll be able to point us out and say "I trained them" and in a proud, not embarrassed voice. Thanks for being such a good clothes hanger when everyone gives their gear to you just before the race.We hope to see you at any of our races and will always let you hold our coats for us. Your enthusiasm always helps us and when we hear you yelling at us to speed up in a race, we always try that little bit harder. We hope you've enjoyed this 5 years as much as we have and we'll miss you and 'pack it in!!'

Selection of Relay Teams

  • To be selected the athletes must first sign up to the event in good time.
  • Relay teams are usually selected to achieve the best result for the club.
  • Relay teams become better by being the fastest they can be and by executing changeovers with maximum efficiency.
  • This requires practice and training together.
  • So the fastest individual athletes may not necessarily form the fastest team.
  • Run offs may be held at short notice to clarify current performance levels.
  • Team order will be determined by the coach alone.
  • Team selection will be determined by the coach alone.
