West Waterford Athletic Club Juvenile News.
Secondary Schools Competition on Wednesday 25th  
 The best of luck to all the West Waterford athletes competing with their schools this week.  Secondary schools will be in action at the RSC on Wednesday starting at 12 noon.
Training continues on Wed and Fri @6pm as our young athletes prepare to compete in the Primary Schools Sports.
All Systems Go for Primary School Sports     
On Thursday May 3rd   it will be the turn of the primary schools athletes to take to the track. Arrangements are now complete for the first session of the sports for big schools which will get under way at 6 .30pm sharp. Parents and teachers should arrive early, as line up for the sprints will start at 6.15pm. Parking inside the grounds will be limited as we cannot use the hockey pitch and those who arrive late will have to park outside and walk in. If you are parking on the road please park in a sensible way to allow the free flow of traffic on the road. Parents with children in the younger age groups should be in the Friary before 6pm to allow time for parking and getting to the line-up area.  Every year we have one or two disappointed children who arrive in the field just after 6.30 to find they have missed their race. As there is such a large programme we will start on time. There is a large entry in these qualifying heats and all the young athletes will be attempting to qualify for the Western finals. We ask all parents, teachers and athletes to comply with the instruction of our stewards to ensure the safety of everyone. This year there will be 14 schools competing in the big schools section to even out the number of schools competing in both the small and big school sections.
Another Win for Angelina Chizhikova
Angelina Chizhikova was one of the few athletes to compete in Kilmacow last Sunday. Most of our younger athletes opted to stay in Dungarvan for the food festival. It was a very worthwhile trip for Angelina as she had a fine win in the girls under 14 700m. Well done Angelina.
