Fun In Athletics Trials 2011

Posted on 15/01/11

On Saturday 15th of January 2011 the South Yorkshire McCain Athletics Network held their U11, U13 and U15 Fun in Athletics Trials at the English Institute of Sport, Sheffield.

The event was an excellent example of how network clubs can work together to deliver a successful event. Although, the day would not have ran if the sports leaders from Wales High School, Rotherham had not been there to officiate and demonstrate the events to the younger athletes.

The event attracted athletes from across the county who were trialing out to be selected for the South Yorkshire Sports Hall athletics team.

Parents spoke highly of the competition, and were impressed by the smooth running. Ashley Little (South Yorkshire Athletics Network Development Officer) said “The event could not have been ran without the help and support of both club volunteers and the sports leaders from Wales High School”.

The U11s team competed at the Fun in Athletics Regional Finals on Sunday 30th January 2011, competing against other teams from across Yorkshire.
