BRAY INVITATIONAL EVENT

 

The Annual Bray Invitational Event takes place this coming Tues. 20th June in Greystones. We are only allowed a limited number of athletes for this event and so priority will be given to those who have competed in the recent County & Leinster events. Any places left after this will be allocated on a first come first served basis. The entry form is on our website and will close on Sat. 17th.

 

There will be no training for the 6-7pm or 7-8.30pm groups this Tuesday due to this competition. Little Athletics 5-6pm will go ahead as normal.

 

 

TRAINING

 

Training for our younger groups ie 5-6pm & 6-7pm sessions, will finish for the summer at the end of June. We will finish up with a fun competition on Friday 30th for all our younger athletes (5-6 & 6-7pm groups) and we look forward to seeing you all back in Sept. A huge ‘Thank You’ to our coaches and helpers and an appeal for more help in Sept. please, we can’t continue without it. Have a great summer everyone!

 

Training for the 7-8.30pm groups continues through July as many of our athletes will still be competing during this time. Most will take a short break then and return on the first Tues of Sept. Those competing in the final of the League in August will continue to train by arrangement with coaches.

 

Athletes from all groups, who have not attended for a number of weeks, need to contact us right away if they intend to return in Sept. otherwise places will be given to those on our waiting list and we will not be able to accommodate them in Sept.
