Derby Athletic Club events
Youth Development League (YDL) Upper Age Group (UAG) – Meeting 1
April 30 @ 11:15 am - 5:00 pm
The YDL UAG summer track and field meetings are aimed at athletes in age groups U17 and U20 – school years 10 and 11 (U17) and 12 and 13 (U20). Athletes whose birthdays fall after December 31 may compete as U20 for a further season. Derby Athletic Club is competing in the North/East Midlands Division 1A, against Amber Valley and Erewash AC, Burton AC, Charnwood AC, City of Stoke AC, Leicester Coritanian AC, Saffron AC and Tamworth AC.
The club may field two athletes for each event. U17 athletes may compete in a maximum of three events (track, field or a mixture) plus a relay. U20 athletes may compete in a maximum of five events. The club’s YDL UAG team manager will select the team based on athlete ability and availability. Please sign up to compete (sheets will be in the clubhouse) or speak to your coach. If multiple athletes are available for a popular event, non-scoring options may be available.
There are three matches, plus a promotion match if the club qualifies.
The YDL programme follows a published timetable, so please ensure you are at the venue in time to warm up for your event, and that you report to the event in plenty of time – at least 10 minutes before the track event is due to start, and at least 15 minutes before the start of the field event. If you have a clash, report to your field event to register and then complete your track event. The first event of the day is at 11.15am.
