This Sunday (August 5) is the final deadline to enter the FPSG Age Group Champs – so make sure you don’t miss out on competing at a National Championships.
The superb facilities at Aberdeen Sports Village are the venue for the event on the weekend of August 18/19.
It’s always a great occasion and should be the pinnacle for the season for those athletes in the U20, U15 and U13 categories.
And we’d urge clubs, coaches and parents from across the country to encourage their young athletes to be in Aberdeen and compete for PBs, places in a final or even to make the podium. Please use the online entry links above before midnight on Sunday.
Competition should be what you are training for throughout the year and we’ve been delighted with the response in recent years to track and field championships in various age groups.
For this particular FPSG Age Groups, we’d also love to see clubs in the Grampian area supporting the event to the full with scottishathletics operating a policy to ‘rotate’ venues on a regular basis and as and when the Track and Field Commission feel it is appropriate and practical.
Aberdeen Sports Village – great facilities for the FPSG Age Groups
scottishathletics make a big effort in staging these events and we will have a lot of coverage of the FPSG Age Groups across our channels that weekend, with photos from Bobby Gavin.
Now we are again asking athletes, parents, coaches and clubs to support the FPSG Age Groups to give us the best possible level of competition.
In terms of the U20 Champs, it would be really good see the bulk of the Scotland team selected for U20 International in Wales competing in Aberdeen and raising standards. U17 athletes are allowed to compete at U20 level, too (please check with your coach).
Remember: Competition – It’s What You Train For
