West Waterford Athletic Club Juvenile Notes
Countdown is on for Thursdays Primary School Sports
On Thursday next May 2nd the first round of the Primary School Sports will take place at St Augustine’s College. The weather forecast is good for Thursday but it will be cool in the evening so come prepared for cool weather.
 First in action will be the big schools that will have athletes in action in all ages from under 8 to under 14. The programme will kick off at 6.30 with the under 8 sprints. Line up for the sprint races will begin at 6.15 so we urge parents and children to come on time. If you can walk, cycle or car share to the venue please do so as this will cut down on the traffic. Please leave plenty of time for parking as traffic will be heavy at this time as students are collected from study. Please park sensibly to allow the free flow of traffic and obey the instructions of the stewards.
With over seventy races on the programme the races will be run in quick succession with boys one the far side of the track and girls on the near side. The sprints will be all over in less than half an hour and then it will be heats of the relays followed by the long distance races and the programme will be complete shortly after 8.30
