Dates announced for summer Mini Leagues
Dates have now been announced for this summer’s Derbyshire Mini League track and field events.
There will be four meetings over the summer outdoor season, all at Derby AC’s home track at Moorways, all on Saturdays:
Events are aimed at U11, U13 and U15 athletes, boys and girls (school years 4-9) and are ideal for both new athletes and those with a bit more experience. In addition, for U13 and U15 athletes, results from the events will inform selection for the prestigious U13/U15 Inter-Counties event on 12 September.
Events include sprint hurdles, sprints, middle distance races and relays on the track, and shot put, javelin (or howler javelin), discus, long jump and high jump in the field.
There is no limit to the number of athletes who can take part in each event so the club would encourage all those eligible to come along.
Mini League events are on Saturday morning, with the first event starting at 10am, and the final race taking place around 2pm.
There is no charge for athletes to enter, as the fee is included in your club subscription. All you need a club vest and a number (issued by the team manager).
Watch out for a sign-up sheet for events in the clubhouse.
