Juvenile News Update
Many thanks to those of you who have already returned registration forms for 2017. Just a gentle reminder to please try and return them before the end of January - otherwise the athletes will not be correctly insured for 2017 and will not be permitted to train with the group.
For this year, there is an option to "opt-in" or "opt-out" of purchasing the new juvenile club gear (hoodies, new t-shirts and beanies) as part of the registration. The snazzy new singlets are also available for €15 each.
Forms can be returned at training on Tuesdays or Fridays, or to Andrea Burns at the address in the attached registration form (attached to this email).
Leinster Development Squad Day
Bray Runners A.C. had no less than 10 athletes participating at the Leinster development squad day at the AIT Indoor Arena in Athlone. They each had the opportnity to train in sprints, middle distance, long jump and shot putt. It seems like they all picked up a few new tips and excercises that they will apply to their training going forward.
We will be returning to AIT arena in less than two weeks, when Gráinne O'Sullivan and Aoife Carter will be participating in the National Combined Event Championships, where they will compete in the 60mH, Long jump, Shot Putt, High Jump and 800m all in one day. Phew!
After that, the Leinster Indoor Track and Field Championships take place on 11 and 12 February in Athlone. Day 1 consists of the 60m sprints and middle distance races (600m / 800m), with long jump for uneven ages and other events; while Day 2 consists of 60m Hurdles and long jump for even ages and other events.
Then, the Leinster Relay Championships will on 25 February in the brand new National Indoor Arena at the National Sports Campus in Dublin(!). All of the Leinster Indoor Championship events are open to born in 2006 or earlier, and we would encourage as many of our athletes as possible to enter.
