Juvenile Notes, 7th April 2008

Preparations are well under way for Primary Schools Sports
The countdown is on to the first leg of the West Waterford Primary School sports.  Most of the schools have had their trials at this stage and entries are in for the first round, which will be held on Thursday April 24th with the first race off at 6.30 sharp.  Remember to come in time and give yourself plenty of time for any traffic delays.  Parking inside the grounds is limited so its first come first served.

That week will be a busy one for West Waterford athletes and officials with the Waterford Post Primary Schools sports on Wednesday in Waterford and the County Club Championships on Friday evening also in Waterford.

Leevale Open Sports
On Sunday April 20th the club will travel to C.I.T. in Cork to compete in Leevale Open Sports.  All those who are training are welcome to travel. There will be events for all ages from under 8 up and there will also be relays under 9,11,13, and 15. There are not that many open sports run nowadays so if you want to try out a competition before the championships get under way this is your chance.  The last Open Sports was held at Kilmacow on Easter Monday when twenty-three athletes competed.  It was a very successful day.  Elma Nugent, Siobhan Nugent, Declan Power, Jake Beecher and Rebecca Maher won gold medals. Cliodhna Ryan and Jenny Hurley won silver medals and Oisin O’Mahony a bronze.  All who travelled on the day had a very enjoyable day out.

Training continues on Wed, and Fri at 6.p.m. New members are always welcome.

All in West Waterford are delighted to hear that Darragh is on the road to recovery after his recent stay in hospital.  We wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him back in action in the near future.
