We enter a composite team with Andover in both the Under 11 and Under 13 age categories in this indoor athletics league, which sees us compete against other clubs in Hampshire.
Teams must be pre-entered so we need to know names a few days in advance. There is a minimum age to compete – with entrants needing to be 8 or over on the day of competition. Each athlete pays £4 on the day.
There are 4 matches each season, all on Sundays starting at around 1pm and finishing by about 4:30pm. Everybody takes part in a variety of events with their team. It’s a full afternoon and typical events are long or triple jump, speed bounce, chest push, shuttle runs, relay, vertical jump. Although it is a competitive event, the emphasis is very much on Fun in Athletics, so no experience is necessary – we’ll make sure that everybody knows what to do.
Further details for the Hampshire Sportshall events can be found here:

Hampshire Cross Country League
The Hampshire Cross Country League is seen as the Blue Riband of cross country in the South of England. Unfortunately the youngest age group is Under 13s and children must be in Year 6 to take part.
Wessex League Track and Field
During summer we again join forces with Andover for the Wessex League track and field. There are four matches between April and July. Under 11s (Year 5 & over) take part in a Quadkids event (600m, 75m, long jump and howler throw). Under 13s and over (Year 7 +) can take part in a variety of track and field events, including sprints, distance races, jumps and throws. http://www.wessexleaguetandf.co.uk/
