The U9-U11 Team competition will be held in Santry on the weekend 23rd-25th July in Santry. In this competition athletes are paired with a club mate to make up a team for each event. The athletes will compete in their event on their own and results combined with that of their team mate to determine placing. Each athlete is allowed to participate in 2 events (with the same or different partner). If your athlete would like to complete please submit entries to firstname.lastname@example.org before 9pm Monday 12th July and include name and date of birth. Please submit ALL events that your athlete is willing to participate in in order of preference (1-4). See details below. Unfortunately we won't be able to guarantee everyone gets their top choices as we will need to make up a team for each event but we'll do our best to accommodate. If you are not sure about events please book for training on Saturday 10th when we explain the events before you decide.
Emphasis in competition at this age group is on fun and participation. It's an opportunity to experience competition and represent the club in a relaxed environment whilst meeting athletes from other clubs. Athletes will be required to wear a Crusaders T-Shirt for competition. If your athlete needs one they are available for €10 at training.
Timetable will be determined by the entries received and will not be finalised until after clubs submit entries.
