Those Born in 2010 and 2011Return to Training this Week @6.15


We have been settling in to our new training regime over the last few week. First back were our older athletes born between 2002 and 2007 and they are now well into their stride with Tony’s group training Mon, Wed and Fri @6pm and Mary’s group training on Wed and Friday @6pm. Last Friday we welcomed back those born in 2008 and 2009 and they are now up to speed with the new system. This week on Wed and Friday we will welcome back those born in 2010 and 2011.  We ask that those born in 2010 and 2011 come to training at 6.15 to avoid any queues and allow for social distancing at check in. Many of them have already sent in their forms and have received the back to training email with instructions on how to sign up for training online they have also received their life registration numbers to access the online system. If you have sent in your form and have not received your email and registration number please contact Mary Ashe.

Remember you must be registered and insured with Athletics Ireland and checked in online before you attend training.
