BRAY INVITATIONAL EVENT
The Annual Bray Invitational Event takes place this coming Tues. 26th 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 this coming Sat. 23rd.
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 for our 5-6 pm group will finish up for the summer on Tues. next 26th June and the 6-7pm groups will finish on Fri 29th. We will finish up with a fun competition on Tues for the 5-6 pm group & on Fri for the 6-7pm groups. Athletes who were born in 2006/7, have the option to come along to the 7-8.30pm sessions during July. Some will have the opportunity to move to this group in Sept.
We hope everyone has a great summer & 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. Don’t leave it until August as places will be given to those on our waiting list and we will not be able to accommodate you for Sept.
