World Juniors and European Youths

Friday 26th February 2016

There are two significant competition coming up this summer for the best of Britain’s young athletes.

And Scots of a certain age and standard should certainly be aiming to see if they can make the shake-up for selection for either the World Juniors in Poland or the European Youths in Georgia.

These are U20 and U18 events respectively and thus those born in 1997 and 1998 should be looking towards the World Juniors and those born in 1999 and 2000 to the European Youths.

Selection policies for GB and NI teams for both these international competitions are online on the British Athletics website.
