DENNIS NEEDS YOUR HELP (but not for long)!

West Cheshire Athletic Club needs your help on Sunday May 26th, when we host the second round of the Under 17s and Under 20s Youth Development Track and Field League at Ellesmere Port Sports Village.

Dennis Wall will be at the track on that day from 8am to set up the throws area, pole vault equipment, high jump and long jump areas, and hurdles, but he can’t do it all on his own!

He needs willing helpers to assist, and would be grateful for any time you can all provide to ensure we are able to host our first home fixture of the year.

Please let Dennis know ASAP, at dennis.wall1@ntlworld.com, if you can help me and please spread the word that we need volunteers for an hour, two hours, or all day.

PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITY

All parents of youngsters attending track training sessions are reminded to collect their sons and daughters from the track – not from the car park. The Club wants to ensure everyone stays safe and that every youngster safely leaves every track training session. 

CLUB KIT

Anyone wanting to purchase club vests (£17) and/or hoodies (£15) is reminded that parents Vikki Brett and Joanne Lark will sell club kit at the EPSV Track Office AFTER Tuesday night training sessions.

Payment can be made by cash, or by cheque made payable to West Cheshire AC.

URGENT HELP NEEDED

The Club needs urgent help, support, and assistance from parents during Tuesday evening training sessions at the Ellesmere Port Sports Village Athletics Track (6.30pm-8pm).

The club currently has a waiting list for under 11s, and this situation can only be resolved by asking parents to volunteer on a rota basis at Tuesday night training sessions.

PARENTS who can help should contact Dennis Wall on 07968643038 or email: dennis.wall1@ntlworld.com

INVITE TO OBTAIN TRACK AND FIELD CERTIFICATE

All Club members are being invited to support our club by completing the Track & Field Online Management Course to help West Cheshire AC look after the Ellesmere Port Sports Village Athletics Track. Further details can be found here.
