CLUB SUCCESS LAST YEAR with LYNDSAYS TROPHY
Message from Clare Barr, Convenor, of XC and RR Commission
The West District Cross Country Relays are only just over a fortnight away, and ENTRIES CLOSE NEXT MONDAY – 2 October, so please get your forms sent in ASAP! No late entries are accepted – no excuses.
I have attached the Selection Policy document for the West Cross Country teams in 2017-2018. I would urge you to forward it on to anyone and everyone who you think is appropriate, so Coaches, athletes, parents etc etc. Perhaps you could pin a copy up on your club noticeboard?
If athletes are keen to be selected for the West teams, it is important to compete in as many of the selection races as possible.
It often happens that athletes have a bad race, are ill or injured, or cannot do a particular race due to studying, work or family commitments; this is completely understandable. What I would ask athletes/Coaches to do is keep the Selectors informed of anything like this so that they can take this into consideration. They are always grateful for any relevant information, so please do not hesitate to open a dialogue with them.
Wishing you the very best of luck for the Cross Country season ahead!
