Message from the XC Team Manager

This coming Sunday (15th of Oct) Leamington C&AC are hosting the West Mids Jnr’s XC at Hatton. If you can help out with Marshalling for a couple of hours in the morning, please contact Capt Phil at phillip.gould@coventry.ac.uk

In the afternoon (14:00hrs) we will be holding the LC&AC XC Club Champs. A great warm-up for the season ahead and a chance to try out you’re new spikes in a friendly environment. If you want to run, again mail Phil at the same address.
The XC season is fast approaching but if you’re membership isn’t paid up for 2017, you wont be eligible to run, as this would cause the team to get disqualified. It needs to be sorted before race day.

Leamington C&AC Athlete at Combined Events

Saturday 16th September was the English Schools Athletics Association combined events final in Boston Lincolnshire. Cameron Williams-stein from Kenilworth school took part in 2 qualifying rounds gaining sufficient points to be one of 45 junior boys across the country invited to take part in the event.

The level of competition was exceptionally high but Cameron, who trains with Leamington Cycling and Athletics Alub, performed well in his 80m hurdles and 800m and achieved personal bests in shot, long jump (5.49m), high jump (1.65m) and pentathlon points (2420). After qualifying in 35th place in the country he was delighted to finish the event in 21st place.

The young athletes sessions are starting again on Thursday 7th September. Using the Athletics 365 model, we will provide a gentle introduction to athletics in a fun and enjoyable way.

Sessions are £5.00 or can be block booked, speak to the coaches about this. Athletes in this group will be able to take part in some of the indoor Sportshall competitions if they want to, there is no pressure to do so at this age.

Hope to see you there…
