WELCOME BACK

 

Welcome back to all our athletes and coaches and a big welcome to all our new athletes. We hope everyone is well settled in at this stage, enjoying the training and looking forward to the Cross Country (XC) season. Attendance at training has been poor in a couple of groups and we are now removing all athletes who have not returned at this stage, as we have long lists of people waiting for places. We cannot hold places indefinitely!

 

REGISTRATION NIGHT

 

We will be holding a registration night for all of our new athletes on this coming Tues 27h Sept. Registrations for ‘Little Athletics’ 5-6pm group will be taken at their check-in time. Registrations for the 6-7pm & 7-8.30pm groups will be taken between 6.45- 7.30pm in the room behind Reception. Forms will be available on the night and are also on the website under ‘Training Times & Club Info’ Fee for the remainder of 2016 is €20 for one child or €15 for an additional child. Those already registered for 2016, do not need to register again.
