September New Season Note:
A warm welcome to the new athletes that have recently joined us and to those regular attendees returning after the summer break.
A "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.
To find out more then please contact the membership secretary (Cressy Morgan): firstname.lastname@example.org or call in on a Tuesday night between 6-7 (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.
Coming Up in September 2019:
The same arrangement process applies for the month of September as has happened over the summer, whilst there is still some day light. All children meet at the track with coaches to either train on the track in various disciplines or cross country group training, which begins on 3rd September. The xc group will make use of the field that is situated behind the car park.
Most coaches these days have WhatsApp groups for their own sessions and will update if they do not train on a particular week.
From October 2019 onwards:
The club has booked the sports hall inside the Leisure Centre throughout the winter months (October 2019-March 2020) so if the weather is bad/raining/wet on a Tuesday evening, the 6.00 - 7.00pm junior groups 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. Cross Country runners continue to train outside on the field/track on a weekly basis.
You can still pay training fee at the track entrance or to coach 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 group will continue to meet outside at the track unless other arrangements have been made.
Thursday Evening 2018/19 Winter Training:
Thursday Evening Training is invite only by coaches for those who compete regularly for the club across under 11, under 13 and under 15 categories in the 6.00 - 7.00pm slot. It will continue outside on the track each week unless other arrangements have been made.
