2017 Club Championships - Sat 16 Sept

With 1 week to go until the 2017 Club Championships, it's time to get your entry in!

All athletes who attend training on Monday and Wednesday nights are expected to take part in this competition. For any new members, this event will be a perfect introduction to athletics competition!

Events

A provisional timetable and event listing for each age group are available in the flyer below.

Under 11 to Under 15 athletes can enter up to 3 individual events and Under 17 to Senior athletes can enter up to 4 individual events.

Athletes choose their own events when entering and need to enter a mixture of track and field events. You can't do all track or all field!

If you would like advice on what events to enter, please speak to your coach at training and they will be happy to help.

If you're doing an event for the first time, just leave the PB/SB section of the form empty.

Entry

Entries must be made in advance using the online entry form via the link below. There are no late entries or entries on the day.

The closing date for all entries is midnight on Sunday 10 September.

For Livingston club members and RJT athletes, the entry fee is £8 per athlete. For guest entries from other clubs the entry fee is £5 per event.

Under 9s

Under 9 athletes compete in a 4 event quadrathlon (long jump, 60m, shot putt, 600m).

It's open to all Livingston RJT athletes, or family/friends of members, with a medal for every competitor.

The entry fee is £8 per athlete.

Medley Relay

Livingston club members can enter the Medley Relay, the final event of the day, which consists of mixed age/gender teams of 5 athletes running a 400m, 300m, 2x200m and 100m, with a prize for each member of the winning team.

For those who entered the relay, teams will be picked at random on Wednesday 13 September at the end of the training session.

Trophies & Medals

Livingston Club Championship medals will be presented on the day for 1st/2nd/3rd place in each event for each age group (U11/U13/U15/U17/SEN). U20s and Seniors will be combined for medal purposes.

Guest athletes are NOT eligible for medals.

All Under 9 athletes will receive a medal after the last event.

Livingston Club Championship trophies will be presented at a later date to the overall 1st/2nd/3rd placed athlete in each age group (U11/U13/U15/U17/SEN) for which eligibility is:

  • You must be a fully paid up member of Livingston Athletic Club and have represented the club at least twice this season.
  • U11, U13 and U15 athletes must compete in 3 individual events, which should be a mixture of track and field events.
  • U17 and Senior athletes must compete in 4 individual events, which should be a mixture of track and field events.
The trophy winners will be decided using the scottishathletics SATS Performance Tables (summary available below), with every event scored from 1 to 1200 points, and the winners in each age group having the highest points total. Every millisecond and every centimetre counts!

Chocolate Tombola

We're also looking for donations of anything chocolate related for a tombola.

If you have anything from a bag or box of chocolate to chocolate liqueur that you would like to donate, please bring it along on the morning of the competition or hand it in at training.

We're grateful for all donations no matter how big or small.

Parent Helpers

It takes a big team of officials and volunteers to run athletics competitions. Parent helpers are needed to help officiate the field events and relay changeovers (no experience necessary). If enough people volunteer then everyone only needs to help for an hour or so on the day.

If you're available to help, please speak to Alistair or add your name on the entry form.
