West Waterford Athletic Club
All systems are go for the first round of the Primary Schools Sports on Thursday next May 3rd. Eighteen schools will compete in the Big Schools Heats which will be sponsored this year by Eurofins Food Testing Ireland Ltd. West Waterford Juvenile Committee are delighted to welcome Eurofins on board as sponsor for this event. 
We urge all parents and children especially those in the sprint races to come early to the Friary. There will be less parking inside this year as we do not have the use of the hockey pitch for parking so more people will have to park outside and walk in. We ask all parents to obey the instructions of the stewards with regard to parking to keep the area safe for everyone.
The weather forecast for Thursday is good. The programme will start with the sprint races for under 8’s at the end of the sprints we will have the relays and the programme will conclude with the long races. Tony Shalloe has all his recorders and judges ready to go and Antoinette O’Brien has been lining up stewards for the event. Bro  Lennon will have the Friary looking its best  and parents and committee members from West Waterford will be on hand to line up the sprints to ensure the first race gets underway @6.30 with line up for the sprints starting at 6.15 so again the message to athletes, parents and teachers is to arrive early.
