IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Friday 19 December 2014

Owing to an unprecedented late rush of entries for the U17/U15/U13 South Wales/East Wales/South West England Indoor Championships and Junior Open Indoor event at NIAC on Sunday 4th January some events have now been moved to Saturday 3rd January to ease the congested timetable.

A one-day timetable was unrealistic and, in order to cope, a number of events for South Wales and East Wales athletes, who are local to the venue, will take place on Saturday 3rd January.

Events moved from Sunday 4th to Saturday 3rd January are the following;
. 60m for All South Wales and East Wales U13, U15 & U17 male and female
. 200m for All South Wales and East Wales U13, U15, & U17 male and female
. 1500m for all South Wales and East Wales U13, U15 & U17 male and female
. High Jump for all South Wales and East Wales U13, U15 & U17 male and female
. Shot Put for all South Wales and East Wales U13, U15 & U17 male and female
. Long Jump for South Wales and East Wales U13B, U13G & U15G

All other events will remain on Sunday as timetabled but please be aware that the final timetable for Sunday will still involve a long day of athletics due to the sheer number of athletes taking part.

The revised timetable can be viewed HERE.

Athletes competing on both Saturday and Sunday will need to keep their number from Saturday and re-register on Sunday to confirm their attendance; they will not be issued with a new number so please do not lose it.

We are now looking for athletes, parents and club members to help with this extra demand with support on the Saturday as well as Sunday. Welsh Athletics will require another 20 field officials, plus non-technical helpers at registration to help take names and issue numbers.

Volunteers will also be required to help with the events track seeding and people who are interested in this duty will have on-the-day training. Unfortunately if help cannot be found to deal with the extra demand some events may not take place.

Many thanks for your patience and understanding in this matter.
