THIS WEEKEND

Bebington Oval is the venue for this Saturday’s final round of the Youth Development Under 13s and Under 15s Track and Field League, (11am start).

Best wishes to all our club athletes and officials.

DON’T MISS THE NORTHERN CHAMPIONSHIP CLOSING DATE…

Entries close THIS MONDAY (July 23) for the Northern Under 13, Under 15 and Under 17 Track and Field Championships being held at Wavertree, Liverpool, on Saturday and Sunday, August 11 and 12. Further details can be found here.

PLEASE HELP!
Volunteers are needed to ensure this year’s Guilden Sutton 10k Road Race, being organised by West Cheshire AC, proves a big success on Sunday, 16th September, (11am start).

If you are available to help out please contact Dennis by email at dennis.wall1@ntlworld.com. If you are a club member who has entered the race or is planning to run the race then please ask someone to help out on your behalf. The 10k is followed by a one mile fun run which can be entered on the day.

Please try to help out, because money made from the event will be invested back into the club to subsidise transport costs and competition fees.

KIT PERSON NEEDED

The Club is looking for someone to supervise the sale of club kit on a weekly basis after club training sessions. If you are interested please contact Dennis ASAP.

NEW HIGH JUMP COVER

The Club has bought a new high jump cover which is scheduled to be delivered this Monday morning, enabling the high jump beds to be housed outdoors for easier access for training sessions and competition.

SIGN UP TO BECOME A CLUB COACH OR OFFICIAL

Parents and helpers at the club wanting to provide back-up to our graded coaches and officials are being asked to contact Dennis Wall either at track training sessions or by email.

The club needs to strengthen it’s experienced unpaid volunteers and plan for the future to ensure all members are accommodated at training sessions.

If you want more information about how to become a coach or official please get in touch with Dennis ASAP.

STAYING HEALTHY

Club coaches Tim Durrant and Ian Ackroyd want to raise awareness to all young female club members about assessing their iron levels by having blood tests.

Articles recently written by athlete Bobby Clay about her training and health issues have flagged up warnings and the need for our female athletes aged between 13 and 17 years old to monitor their health. Ian and Tim will provide more details if asked.

Club member Heather McLintock is a qualified physiotherapist and offers substantial discounted prices for West Cheshire AC members on production of their membership card. Heather can be contacted on 01244 381350 or 07885 462487.
