U16-18s group and our college group back at training

Since recommencing training as part of phase 1 on May 19th, our athletics training groups have been gradually resuming somewhat normal activities. We started back initially in groups of 4 with older ages, and then were permitted to expand to groups of 15 and then to larger groups – all with social distancing. Then in phase 2 our u14s and u13s resumed training. We didn't resume with U12s and younger due in part to those ages being very busy with other sports in the months of July and August, traditional downtime for them from athletics and also due to the fact that many coaches were unavailable for those months.

Come September we plan to resume with all younger groups during the first and second weeks of the month - subject of course to the public health guidelines in place at the time.

We are seeking more volunteer parents to help out in September as we will need to split the groups into manageable subgroups, particularly in the younger groups. Please contact Mike Tobin 087 659 1879 if available to help - no prior experience required as the club will train new coaches and will arrange courses from Athletics Ireland.

We will also be commencing a new senior infants group for 8 weeks from mid September and are actively seeking parents to help. Mark Gillen will be coordinating this new group at the start with a view to it being self-sufficient with parents leading the coaching by the end of the 8 weeks. Please contact Mark at 086 816 2637 if you are willing to help out. The group will train from 5.30pm to 6.30pm on Wednesdays on the Astroturf.

Other training groups will continue to train on the same days as last year but we will have to adjust times a little to avoid overlap between groups and to allow a gap between sessions to allow carpark to clear.
