Just to confirm the track is booked on SATURDAY 21/04/18 by North Somerset so there is NO TRAINING for Yate and
District AC on Saturday 21/04/17 at all.
Next Wednesday evening the 25th April there is an open competition from 6.00 pm run jointly by YATE & District AC and Bristol and West AC so there will be no Yate AC academy sessions. We would, however, encourage you all to enter the event. There are quad kid events too, (75 m, 600 m long jump & vortex throw) so everyone should be able to give it a go. Don’t forget the team managers will be able to see the results which helps them in team selection, how will they be able to select you if they don’t know how well you do and what you like doing?
Please go to the front page of our web site, click on the entry details, its entry on the night, so just turn up, pay and compete! For some of you this may be your first taste of competition, so what better way to start at your own track, with all the friendly faces you know around to help!
Last bit of news. Don’t forget the entries for the Avon County Championships close on 5/05/18, last year we had a great Yate representation in the event so get those entries in!
Calling all Yate Under 17 and Under 20 Yate athletes who would like to be considered for ‘Team Avon’ in the U17/U20 Youth Development League.
You should have all been sent an ‘availability’ form to return to the team managers, advising them what events you would like to do and which dates you are available for selection.
Please return your forms to the appropriate manager as soon as possible.

The Throws and Jumps open held at YOSC on Saturday 24th March was a great success.
As you may be aware all proceeds from entries and the tombola were to be donated to Sport relief and we managed to raise £503.30!
Thank you to every one who helped out (special thanks to Amy Nolan for manning the tombola which raise £65 towards the total)!
Despite one or two learning points on the day, we received many positive comments from athletes and officials regarding the event and the complex.
Thank you all.
Looking forward to our Sprints and Hurdles open on 08/04/18!
Don’t forget this month your membership renewal/new Membership is due for the new season.
This is a really straightforward process: simply download the membership renewal/new form from the website, complete it, sort out the payment and get it to our membership Secretary Ellen Taylor by email, post or at the track. We’ll then get your registration sorted with England Athletics for the coming season, which entitles you to compete in all sorts of athletics competitions such as local opens (7 of which are held at YOSC), county championships, and of course, as part of the Yate team, in the Avon Track and Field League (4 meets), Youth Development league (4 meets) and for under 17s and above the Midland league (4 meets). For some age groups that’s the opportunity to compete for the club 8 times in the season, for U17 and above 12 times!
Not to mention the training opportunities at own ‘home track’ at YOSC (with our wide range of development and experienced performance coaches), which after the track relay this summer will be even more extensive.
We can therefore offer the full development pathway from our academy sessions through to club nights at our own track.
If you are looking for membership of Yate AC for the first time (new members always welcome!) you just need to do exactly the same thing, but download the ‘joining for the first time’ form instead of the renewal form. You’ll receive a Yate competition vest as part of your first membership fee too (reduced rates for subsequent years)!
The final deadline for us to receive your membership form is March 31st. This will ensure your registration is renewed/newly registered in time for our Sprints and Hurdles competition on 8th April.
All the info that you will need is on the website membership page, but if you do have any other questions about registration, training or competition please do grab any of the Yate AC coaches or one of the Committee members who will be happy to chat with you.
