Introduction to Athletics event, Hillsborough

The cIMG_2894 Hills2 1lub held an Introduction to athletics event at Hillsborough Arena on Saturday 20th August 2016 sponsored by South Yorkshire Sport.  Despite the SWFC v Leeds football match and the wet weather forecast the event went really well and we managed to avoid the rain (well most of the time) and interest from football fans.  We had around 35-40 children turn up between the ages of 6 years to 21 years!  Leaflets were handed out for SIV athletics sessions to children under 8 years, HH club leaflets to those from 8yrs to 16 years and two people (aged 21 yrs) returning to athletics after finishing University were referred to Kate Jones UKA coach.

Many thanks go to Ben Kelly (sprint coach), Sam Kelly (equipment support/photographer), Malcolm Grace and Martin Young (throws coaches), Evelyn Williams (Standing Long Jump coach), Steve Moran for Endurance/Relays, Karen Kelly registration forms/leaflets and Carol (Hurdles).  Now we have tried it out once it looks like it may become a regular summer introduction to athletics event.
