Oxfordshire Junior Track & Field

I’m really excited that we’ve agreed with the Oxfordshire Junior Track and Field League that we can join and enter a junior Harriers team this summer season.

Dates

They’ll host three fixtures this summer.  Please pop the dates in your diary 🙂

Match Date Venue
Match 1 Sunday 9th April 2017 Horspath Road Stadium, Oxford
Match 2 Sunday 9th July 2017 Horspath Road Stadium, Oxford
Match 3 Sunday 13th August  2017 North Oxfordshire Academy School, Drayton Road, Banbury

Events

Each competition will have a range of events for the competitors.

  • For Under 9 & Under 11’s they have the ‘Quad Kids’ (inc 75m, 600m, Long Jump & Vortex)
  • For U13’s, U15’s & U17, there are a range of events to choose from inc 100m, 200m, 800m, 1500m, Relay, Hurdles, High Jump, Long Jump, Discus, Javelin & Shot Putt to choose from.

Training

We’ll be moving training to KAs West Site on 30th March.  The coaches will focus Spring/Summer training on building their confidence and skills across the range of events.

Helpers

We will need parent/helpers at each of the fixtures to help out the organizers with things like Long Jump, etc.  Please can you let us know if you’re able to help out, as it’ll make your afternoon as a spectator much more interesting.

White Horse Half Marathon

We’re conscious that the first fixture clashes with the clubs Half Marathon.  A number of people will be running or helping out at the ‘Half’, so our first outing is likely to be quieter than the next two.
