Carmarthen Harriers Winter Training Sessions 2019-2020

A warm welcome to the new athletes that have recently joined us and to those regular attendees who have been turning up to weekly training sessions since the winter season began.

"WAITING LIST" for our Under 11 age group has been in place during the summer months as numbers have increased rapidly.

This currently remains in place and will be monitored over the next few weeks as we see interested from new athletes to join Carmarthen Harriers: all members are expected to show a willingness to compete for the club through the winter months and cross country season and indoor athletics season.

New athlete interested in joining the club? To find out more then please contact the membership secretary (Cressy Morgan): secretary.carmarthenharriers@hotmail.co.uk or call in on a Tuesday night between 6-7 to have a chat on what to do (Carmarthen Leisure Centre) You'll be sure of a warm welcome!

We hope that all our athletes who attend training on a weekly basis continue to enjoy their time at the club. For other club information, you can also contact us via the "contact us" link at the top of the www.carmarthenharriers.co.uk club website as well as sending a message on the Facebook page or a Tweet @CarmsHarriers. We aim to reply to event and query messages as quickly as possible on all platforms.

A reminder that athletes need to be 9 years of age to join the Harriers.

 

 

From beginning of November 2019 onwards:

The club has booked the sports hall inside the Leisure Centre throughout the winter months (November 2019-March 2020) so training can continue throughout the winter in all weathers on a Tuesday evening. The 6.00 - 7.00pm junior groups for all disciplines will meet inside the Leisure Centre in the sports hall. Athletes will warm up inside before coaches decide whether to move outside or stay indoors, depending on numbers and elements outside. Cross Country runners continue to train outside on the field/track on a weekly basis.

You can pay training fee at the entrance inside the hall.

Training continues throughout the winter months whatever the weather, so be prepared and wear the correct kit to train for the cross country season and other events including the indoor competitions.

The 6.30 - 8.00pm middle distance and older sprints group will continue to meet outside at the track as has been the case in recent months unless other arrangements have been made.
