31st January 2018
You may have recently heard that Yate & District AC coaches Mark Lodge and Phil Lucker have decided to form a new Club. We wish them all the best in their new venture and thank them for all their great contribution to our club over the years.
For our part, following last year’s success in YDL, Midland League and Avon Track and Field, the club is looking forward to a busy and exciting year ahead. Before our track closes for a £800,000 refurbishment, at the end of July we are planning to celebrate our 35 year anniversary.
As well as our usual Sprints and Hurdles competition, Yate AC are also planning a Jumps and Throws Open in March and hosting three other Opens on Wednesday evenings in partnership with Bristol & West AC and Avon AA.
We are actively exploring alternative arrangements for when our track will be out of action. Although this may cause some temporary disruption we will try to minimise this. However, we firmly believe it to be worth it and see it as fundamental in securing the long-term future of the club at YOSC.
This is a tremendously exciting time and we would like to thank our members for their continued support, whether it be coaching, training, officiating, competing, team managing or general assistance, in making Yate & District AC a vibrant and successful community club. Should you wish to get involved we have a number of volunteer opportunities, please contact one of the committee members for more details.
