Sportshall Events 2015/16


It's that time of year again! Sportshall is back.

For those who have not attended Sportshall before, this competition / event is one of the most fun and relaxed way in which you can test your skills and put your training to use. For those who have been before, then I don't have to remind you how good the last few years have been, and how well each and every one of you have represented yourselves and your club.

As a club, we have closely competed with and beaten some of the more established clubs in the region. The more juniors that attend the competition, the better chance the club has of causing a few surprises. We have also had several of our juniors selected to run for the Lancashire Sportshall Team as a result of their performances at this event.

The Sportshall competition is held indoors at Blackpool Sports Centre (Stanley Park). The meeting dates have now been confirmed as;

For each meeting we ask all our athletes to be at the sports hall no later than 10.30am, and depending on relays, and number of attendees, the finish time is expected to be around 4.30pm. Parents advice from previous years' experience, club t-shirts or vests are mandatory and pack lunches and seat cushions are highly advised.

As you will already be aware, Chorley Athletic and Triathlon club expect every junior member to show their commitment to the club with attendance ata number of events that the club competes at. The coaches and the club expect every junior to make the effort to attend at least one of the dates above and represent CATC. To show this commitment, the club will be fully subsidising these meetings. This is a considerable amount of money for the club to put forward, and is the only club in the region to do so.

Every junior must fill out the form attached, so that the pre-registration and team selection can take place before each meeting takes place. There will be an opportunity to enter on the day but the club subsidy of E7 per meeting may not be available, and your first choice of activity on the day could be limited. You must be at least 8 years old on the day of your first attendance.

Please complete the attached form by Thursday 5th November. Please return the attached sheet to the registration desk at your training session (Monday / Thursday), or send to 18 Grenadier Walk, Buckshaw Village, Chorley, PR7 7EF.

By completing the attached sheet, means that you will automatically be entered for the events that are ticked. Please let me know in advance if you sign up for any of the events, then cannot make it, as I will be submitting, paying and registering athletes in advance of each competition date.

Please contact me if you have any queries or questions. See you all there!
