4th November 2007 (10:00am register)

This is a great event for our younger athletes to enter.

I attach a scanned entry-form for this event (below) which takes place on 4th November 2007 at Blackpool Sports Centre, Stanley Park. It is the first indoor Sportshall event of the year.
We came 3rd overall last year behind Blackpool (winners) and Preston (runners-up), so it would be great to have as many of our athletes there to compete and finish on top!

Remember it is ages as at 31/08/2007 and we have 3 age categories:-

under 11’s (must be age 8 on day of competition), which is mainly Yr 4, 5 & 6
Please advise Mark/Belinda if you wish to compete

under 13’s, which is Yr 7 & 8
Please speak to your Coach to discuss

under 15’s, which is Yr 9 & 10
Please speak to your Coach to discuss

Please note that for Under 11’s, this first round meeting is used as a qualifier to select athletes to represent the county of Lancashire. Last year 12 of our athletes were selected and we would like to have as many there as possible. If selected, then they will take part in the Regional Finals day at Sportcity, Manchester on 25th November 2007 against many other Counties in front of over 800 spectators!!!!

For the Under 13’s and Under 15’s, their performances are also measured and are looked at after all the 3 meetings have taken part! Again selection to represent Lancashire will also be made for next years Under 13 & 15 Regional Finals. We were extremely proud of 2 of our young athletes last year who went on and competed for the Under 13 boys in the UK National Finals held at the National Indoor Arena, Birmingham. Let’s see if we can get more this time round.
