We are looking for six U11 girls (schools years 4 and 5) and six U11 boys, as well as four U13 girls (school years 6 and 7) and four U13 boys to be part of our new Sportshall teams!
We are going to be competing this winter in the Gloucestershire Sportshall League with teams from Cheltenham Harriers, Gloucester AC, Forest of Dean, Tewkesbury and Dursley.
The dates are:
Sunday 10th November – Rednock School, Dursley
Sunday 24th November – Brockworth Sportshall Centre
Sunday 15th December – Cheltenham Leisure Centre
The U11s match is in the morning (approx 9.45am – 12.45pm) and the U13s match is in the afternoon (approx 1pm – 4pm).
Our Sportshall team manager is Jodie Dale, who many of you will know from Quadkids. If you would like to take part please email her ASAP on firstname.lastname@example.org, or see her at the track, and let her know what dates you will be available. It is likely that parents will be asked to get stuck in to help at the competitions!
Don’t worry if you haven’t done any Sportshall before – our academy coaches will ensure that our team members have a chance to get familiar with the events during the weekly academy sessions.
A quick reminder: Sportshall is an indoor form of track and field athletics for junior athletes taking place during the winter months in the warmth of a sports hall. Athletes take part in lots of different events such as standing long jump/triple jump, speed bounce, sprint races, shot put, obstacle relay, hurdles, javelin etc. It’s a lot of fun and a friendly competitive opportunity for those involved, giving a focus for the quieter early winter months.
