DISTRICT ATHLETICS’ CHAMPIONSHIPS 2017
You should, by now, be aware that work has started on the refurbishment of the track at Wavertree Sports Stadium. The whole arena has been dug up and revamped and the work schedule is set for twelve weeks.
That means that our originally published dates for athletics are now invalid with the earliest opening of the arena anticipated to now be June 19th 2017. That date is provisional as, obviously the weather may become a factor in the works involved.
We have provisionally renegotiated our dates for the first week of July 2017 but can now only have two Districts instead of the usual three.
Most schools entered the Athletics on their affiliation form last July. Recent history shows, though, that by June many schools do not fulfil that commitment and do not appear at their District Athletics Championships. If you now do not intend to take part in the athletics championships please let me know by return. It is critical to our organisation of events that we know confirmed numbers.
I originally asked for this information in March and received SIX replies.
This is your final chance to enter. Please complete the small form attached and return it to me as soon as possible. If you do not, you will be presumed to have withdrawn and we will go with the six schools that did reply.
We have a lot of work to do to try and save our athletics for 2017 so please reply quickly.
If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.
