Kent Young Athletes League

Results and League Tables Fixtures News and Reports

This is very much a local (Kent) competition for Under 13 and 15 boys and girls. This league is set up to introduce children to competitive athletics.

This league is regarded as a development area of competition but nevertheless does present some strong opposition which helps all our young athletes to work towards their personal goals. Although this is a team competition, there are opportunities for athletes to take part in non-scoring events. We don’t prioritise the best athletes in all events to get maximum points. The Club encourages athletes to have a go at a variety of events. We endeavour to offer training and advice when new events are being tackled for the first time. Arrangements for training sessions are displayed adjacent to our reception, our website and on notice boards, as well as via the coaches themselves.

We have a coach booked for each match,and do ask that you make full use of this facility.

Role of Team Managers

Team managers are listed below. Each Team Manager will ensure that athletes are aware of transport arrangements, timetables and the wearing of club colours. Each athlete must wear their Club vest to identify them (the Team Manager may have some spares but please do not rely on this) and each athlete has to wear bib numbers or letters which identify the Club.

These numbers or letters are issued by the Team Managers/Captains either before the meeting or on arrival at the meeting and are affixed to the athlete’s club vest using safety pins. Although the Team Managers have a supply of safety pins, some parents prefer to supply their own. The Club has a pergola and an AAC banner where the Team Managers will be based for the meetings. Please make sure that you check in with them when you arrive at the meetings if you have not travelled there on a coach provided by the club. Please also advise a team manager before you depart.

Please see the here  list of suggested kit  which you may find helpful to think about taking with you,and to remind you of the important itmes of clothing that you will need.!!

If you are unsure of anything ,then please do ask your Team Manager Natlie Chappell .If she does not know the answer,then she will find someone who does!!
