All track markings have been painted
We now are waiting for
Red rubber has been fully laid and lines have been painted
Work on the laying of the new track has begun. Black rubber has been laid on an entire D section, the shooting range and about 1/3rd of the home straight
Whilst the final stage of this important work takes place…
As we start to get used to how we can better display our news items on this website, here is a small roundup of some of the things that have happened over the last couple of months…
With Spring finally here, we can start to look forward to the outdoor season.
There are plenty of “Open Meetings” lined up locally in the next couple of months, providing you the chance to record a time/distance/height..
Dear athlete and parent,
Following from our communication on Yate AC website and our newsletter on 31st January, you will be aware that Mark Lodge and Phil Lucker have set up their own Athletics club. Due to this it has been agreed that Phil and Mark will no longer be coaching for us/Yate AC at the 7.00-8.30 Tuesday and Thursday evening club sessions, this is to avoid a potential conflict. We appreciate that this can be disruptive to athletes and do understand the bond between athlete and coach can be special. We apologise for not communicating with you sooner but as you can imagine we had lots of things to get sorted in a short time!
We thank Mark and Phil for all their contributions over the past many years. Mark and his family have spent many hours supporting YOSC and the athletes for this we are greatly appreciative.
Yate have many other coaches who are all ready to talk with you to discuss your training needs at the times when Mark and Phil would have been coaching. Please do come along as usual to your Tuesday and Thursday training sessions where one of the Yate coaches led by Jeremy Dale will be available to help you meet the other coaches and discuss your individual training and competing ambitions.
Do feel free to grab anyone in a Yate AC green jumper if you would like to discuss anything further or have any concerns.
Many thanksYate and District AC
