CLUB NEWS
We hope all our athletes & coaches had a lovely Xmas and that you are all ready to get back to work now. Training for all groups resumes tonight Tues 3rd Jan.

REGISTRATIONS FOR 2017
All club athletes must register for 2017. Registration will take place on Tues 17th Jan from 5-8pm, & Fri 20th Jan from 6-8pm. Registrations can be handed in at check-in before these dates provided they are in an envelope with the athlete’s name on it, but cannot be accepted after these dates, as all available places will have been given to those on our waiting list. Please note that Shoreline Sports Park cannot accept registration forms or payments for Greystones AC.

 

HELP NEEDED
We have a very dedicated group of coaches & check-in personnel, but as always we still need more if we are to continue facilitating the large number of athletes we have in Greystones AC. If you are in a position to help out with coaching, even occasionally, please let us know, as we are always looking for additional coaches. We will make sure you get training. Recently the check-in has been falling back on to the coaches on a fairly regular basis, so if you can give 20 mins to help with check-in when you are dropping your athletes down, it would be a great help indeed.

 

CONGRATULATIONS & CELEBRATIONS!
The Wicklow Star Awards will take place in Roundwood Parish Hall on Fri. 13th Jan at 7.30pm. Once again Greystones AC athletes have done really well, taking 3 of the 4 Juvenile awards with Alex Campbell winning the Boys U14-16, Richael Browne winning the Girls U16-19 & Ben Jones winning the Boys U16-19. GAC take both Junior awards, with Ara Freeman winning the girls & James Vance winning the boys.

The Leinster Star Awards will take place in Carlow on Sat. 22nd Jan. and Geystones AC athletes take all 3 awards, with Richael Browne winning the Juvenile Girls, Josh Pyper winning the Juvenile Boys & Aoife Conroy winning the Senior Award.
