Juvenile News 13 September 2020


Welcome back to training those born in 2008&2009


Our first night back at training last Friday went very well. We divided into two pods and all our athletes were delighted to be back. Pod 1 Tony’s group will train  this week  on Monday Wed and Fri @6pm and Pod 2 Harry’s group will train on Wed and Friday. Don’t forget to check in on line for each session. This week on Friday we will welcome back two more groups those born in 2008 and 2009. Please download the membership form and drop the form and the fee to Mary Ashe. I will then register and insure you with athletics Ireland and send you the email with the back to training protocols and the link to allow you to register online. If you want to attend training on Friday you need to get the form to me by Wednesday. Please include an email address on the form.
