Scottish National events for the forthcoming Indoor Season will all take place at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow.
And we can now confirm that the U17 Age Group Champs will happen on the same day as the Senior Champs – on Saturday 30 January.
Age Group events at U13, U15 and U20 level will be at the Emirates Arena over the weekend of March 5/6.
Huge entry numbers for the Age Groups led to the Track and Field Commission, in consultation with our Events Manager Alasdhair Love and with scottishathletics Officials, to make the decision to move the U17 event.
It is felt that the Seniors date on January 30 will work well with the U17 age group – with hopefully some of the teenagers inspired by being at the same venue on the same day as the Seniors. There is also an opportunity for U17 athletes to compete again at U20 level, if appropriate and in consultation with their coaches.
Online entry will be opening soon for all the Indoor Season events and we will have details on the National Open, which takes place on Saturday 16 January, on here late next week.
