URGENT!
FRIDAY TRAINING
Please note that Friday training for Groups 1 & 2, will be from 6.30 – 7.45pm this week not 7 - 8.30pm to allow people a chance to get to the Wicklow Star Awards afterwards at the Tennis Club. We hope to see lots of GAC athletes and freinds there supporting our winners! All Group 1 Fri sessions are now back at the track.
Our Sunday run is in Djouce this week. Meet at the first carpark about 8.45, ready to run for 9pm sharp. Please make a big effort to get there, as this is a crucial part of the training week!
SPORTSHALL
Our Sportshall competition will take place on this Sun 13th Jan in the Community Hall at Shoreline swimming pool from 2.30-5.30pm. As this is a team competition, athletes must be available for the entire event. Open to all athletes up to U15 in 2013 (born 1999 or after). Teams will be made up on the day! Please arrive on time as once the teams have been made up we will not be able to include late comers and we don’t want to disappoint anyone! Lots of help will be needed for this one, so if you are available, please let us know asap. Help from our older athletes is invaluable for this event, so please let us know if you can come along and help.
REGISTRATIONS
All club athletes now need to renew their registration for 2013, regardless of how long they have been registered with the club. We will only be taking registrations on Tues Jan 15th from 5 - 8.30pm, Wed Jan 16th from 6-7pm only and Fri Jan 18th  from 6.00 – 8.00pm. Registrations can only be accepted at these times and will be done in the room behind the Reception area at the track. They should not be handed in to the Shoreline Centre reception at any time and cannot be accepted by the coaches on the track.

LEINSTER INDOORS
The Leinster Indoor relays will take place at the new indoor track in Athlone on Saturday 2nd Feb. and the individual events will take place on March 9th/10th. All athletes interested in being selected for Relay teams and all athletes competing in the individual events should get their names to Theresa by Wed  Jan 16th latest. We will fill as many relay teams as possible. Once names are in we will be organising event specific training sessions for those athletes who have committed to taking part. No late entries can be accepted.
TRAINING DAY
We had a good turnout for our training day with all the athletes getting a chance to try out, or to refresh  their memories on, the 5 different events. The weather was terrific and everyone seemed to enjoy the day. Many thanks to all the coaches who helped out on the day.
