Kent Young Athletics League

This is very much a local (Kent) competition for Under 13 and 15 boys and girls. There are two divisions, (1 and 2) with the aim of all clubs to get to Division 1. We are currently in Division 1. This league is set up to introduce children to competitive athletics.

This league is regarded as a development area of competition but nevertheless does present some strong opposition which helps all our young athletes to work towards their personal goals. Although this is a team competition, there are opportunities for athletes to take part in non-scoring events. We don’t prioritise the best athletes in all events to get maximum points. The Club encourages athletes to have a go at a variety of events .We endeavour to offer training and advice when new events are being tackled for the first time. Arrangements for training sessions are displayed adjacent to our reception, our website and on notice boards, as well as via the coaches themselves.

As the venues are fairly local, the Club relies on parent’s help with transport for most fixtures in order to keep transport costs down.

Our aims for 2012 are:
- All U13s take part in at least 2 KYAL matches.
- All U15s take part in at least 2 KYAL matches.

Team Manager is Clive Prickett for the U13 and Andrea Bennett for the U15′s.

Role of Team Managers
Each Team Manager will ensure that athletes are aware of transport arrangements, timetables and the wearing of club colours Each athlete must wear their Club vest and back shorts to identify them and each athlete has to wear bib numbers or letters which identify the Club.

These numbers or letters are issued by the Team Manager either before the meeting or on arrival at the meeting and are affixed to the athlete’s club vest using safety pins. Although the Team Managers have a supply of safety pins, some parents prefer to supply their own. The Club has a gazebo and an AAC banner where the Team Managers will be based for the meetings. Please make sure that you check in with them when you arrive at the meetings if you have not travelled there via the Club provided transport. Also please advise a team manager before you depart.
