West Yorkshire Sportshall Athletics
Bingley Harriers are the West Yorkshire County organisers and organise the West Yorkshire Sportshall athletics Trials and then organise the Teams to go forward to the Yorkshire Championships and UK Championships.
In order to recruit the best all round teams, Trials are organised at Richard Dunn Sports Centre where we hope to attract West Yorkshires best.
2017 SPORTSHALL ATHLETICS COMPETITIONS
In recent years the Under 11 and Under 13/15 regional competitions have been combined to help make savings by the Sportshall governing body.. The West Yorkshire Trials will be held in the morning for the Under 11s and in the afternoon on the same day for the Under 13/15s. If anyone can help on day, setting up or helping on the events please let me know.
Sportshall Associates, the body that organise the Regional/ National Sportshall competitions have not been able to gain a sponsor so cash is limited. To ensure the competitions can go ahead Sportshall Associates have asked the County Organisers if they can pay £200 per Under 11 Team and £200 for a U13/U15 Team. To help the West Yorkshire Sportshall Association with the Trail costs and team entry fees they are very grateful for some financial help for the Bradford Athletic Network
The West Yorkshire Trial entry fee is £5, however this figure does include free admission for athletes and parents into the Richard Dunn Sports Centre.
We do need plenty of entries to ensure we have a good standard to select our best possible teams. Schools and clubs in the area have been e-mailed but if anyone would like an entry form they can be found on the website www.bingleyharriers.co.uk or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
At the Trials and at the regional finals West Yorkshire will be required to provide 5 Officials/ parents to help on the day so if you know of anyone that could help please let me know.
Dates for your diary
West Yorkshire Trials – Saturday 14h January 2017 Richard Dunn Sports Centre
Yorkshire Regional finals – Sunday 19h February 2017 , North Bridge Leisure, Halifax
The entry forms for the Under 11 Trials and the Under13/15 Trials can be found below.
We would encourage as many Bingley Harriers Juniors to enter and have a go. For the under 11 trials it does say that the junior has to be 9 on the day of the competition but if they are nearly 9 and confident we would have no objection to them entering for the experience.
Any parents wishing to help on the day “please” then let me now and I can easily find a job. Help is needed setting up, putting away as well as helping being an official marking scores etc.
Pass the message on and bring mates from school. You need to post in the entry form completed on both sides! With payment and an envelope addressed to yourself so we can send the number and programme.
