Club Registrations for 2015 have been taking place all this week during all training sessions and the final opportunity to renew club registrations is tomorrow Friday 23rd Jan. Athletes who have not renewed their registrations by Fri 23rd will be deemed to have left the club and their places will be offered to those on the waiting lists. Those who are not registered will not be on the check-in sheets next Tues evening and can no longer be admitted to the track, as they are no longer covered by insurance. Club committee members will accept registrations in the room behind the reception area during training times on Fri 23rd Jan. only, ie 6-8.30pm. Adult registrations can be accepted at Fit4Life training times. Please do not leave registration forms/fees in to the Sports Park Reception at other times as they can not be accepted by the staff. Neither can they be accepted by the coaches on the track. In an effort to get all records up to date again, all members need to fill out a new club form this year. Fees remain the same as previous years, €30 for 1, €50 for 2, €70 for 3 & €90 for 4 or more family members. Overdue weekly subs. should also be paid off at this time, as we want everyone starting 2015 with a clean slate please.

We remind you all once again that we train in all weathers, hail, rain or snow. In the very unlikely event that we should ever have to cancel training or an event at short notice, a webtext msg. will be sent to all members/parents! Please ensure that you/your child always brings warm clothing and a waterproof jacket to training. While we may very occasionally have access to indoor facilities, we are generally outdoors regardless of the weather, so come prepared for this! On wet nights, gear bags with your change of clothes can be left in the changing rooms at the sports centre.
