The club will be organising a trip for secondary school and college athletes to Glasgow next February to participate in the Scottish National Indoor Championships. The club have travelled each year for the last number of years to these championships and they have proven to be a great experience for the athletes. Further information on this will be made available later in September but parents may wish to start considering it now.
We first went in 2008 with a large number of athletes and smaller numbers since then. On each occasion, it was a great experience for the athletes. The standard is quite varied and with large numbers taking part, most of our athletes are quite competitive. It usually conveniently falls during the school mid-term break, although the date has not been fixed for next year yet.
Further information on previous trips is available at the link below, which includes info on age groups, events etc. The format has changed a little in the younger ages (U13/15) since then with a team event being introduced. Once the Scottish Athletics organisation publish the dates and format for the 2012 competition, I will provide an update to parents so that you can consider and make a decision on whether to go or not.
