After a fantastic set of performances by all of our U12 Club Athletes at the Regional Heats at Pitreavie at the end of May, 8 Club Athletes have qualified to take part in this year’s National Final, which will be held at Scotstoun Stadium in Glasgow this Saturday, 24th June.

Team Selection
For the final, our 8 U12 Club Athletes who have qualified will be split into 2 teams of 4, (2 boys and 2 girls) and Team Selection is based upon how they finished overall in the Heats at Pitreavie, where they will all compete in the 75m, Long Jump, Javelin and 4x100m.

Team selection, Team Managers and Timetable of Events are as follows:

If for any reason any of the above Athletes can no longer attend, can you please drop Stephen a txt on 07768 337 608 to let him know to give him the opportunity to include another of the Athletes who took part in the heats at Pitreavie.
