Wet Weather & Unsafe Conditions called off the weekend's Dyfed Schools Athletics Championships in Carmarthen on Saturday



Dyfed Schools Athletics Championships - Statement

We apologize over the cancellation of the Dyfed Schools Athletics Championships this morning and to all those who had started their journeys to attend today here in Carmarthen. With events confirmed to start on Saturday morning hoping that the rain would stay patchy, Unfortunately the wet weather worsened throughout the morning before the first event and resulted in the venue becoming unsafe, with conditions not expected to improve until teatime.

The Meeting Director, Track Referee, Field Referee & Starter were all in agreement on a final decision following an inspection @ 9.30am to postpone today's event in the safety and welfare of athletes, spectators and officials deeming the field and track unsafe.

It has been confirmed by the meeting director Hedydd Davies that the meeting on 10th June will NOT be re-scheduled to a later date. With the event going forward to the Welsh Schools National Championships in Cardiff on Saturday 1st July - the selection committee will select the best possible Dyfed teams over the recent area events (junior) and middles and seniors by selection. (no year 7s for this event)

Selection letters will be posted out in a few days time and replies need to be sent back.

Many thanks
