IMPORTANT INFORMATION RE TRAINING AND BUILD UP COMPETITION.
Now that the DAC Champs have concluded, play athletics for athletes aged 8 years and under concluded last week, 26 August. I want to express my sincere thanks to TJ Linklater and Natarsha Whelan for taking our younger athletes every Tuesday night.
Athletes aged 9 years and up competing in the Athletics Northern Territory Championships are welcome to continue to attend training on Tuesday 5.15 – 6.45. THERE IS NO TRAINING ON THURSAY THIS WEEK PRIOR TO THE NT CHAMPS.
Once the Athletics Northern Territory Championships have concluded there will be training available for those people selected for the 10-12 years All Schools representative team to travel to Penguin, Tasmania, and the 13 years up ANT nominees aiming to attend the All School National Championships in Adelaide. 13 years and older athletes wanting to remain fit are welcome to attend. At this stage it will be Mondays and Thursdays with specific 10-12 training squad meeting on Wednesdays. There will be NO Training on the Monday and Tuesday after the NT championships in order to give athletes recovery time. Training will resume on Thursday 11 September at 5.15.
We have completed Friday night DAC competition, this weekend the Athletics Northern Territory Championships will be held on the weekend of 5, 6,7, September for those aged 9 years and over who have entered.
The Build Up Competition in our DAC Handbook is for all athletes aged 9 years and over who are in representative teams. We run the competition in order to ensure all athletes are competition ready for these national events and a timetable for the events on those nights will be made available on the website prior to the first night.
