Important Information

Cork athletics provides competition for juvenile athletes in events in the year before they compete at Munster/National level.

The primary aim of the Cork Athletics run CYDI & Winter Coaching Series is to raise the technical proficiency in selected track and field events, and to assist in the coaching of athletes for competition.

This series is in its 5th year, and Saturday sees the resumption of the Series, with the 2019 Autumn/Winter sessions.

The first session, from 1pm to 2:30pm, is for athletes who have already attained an advanced standard in the event.

The sole exception is the Hurdles, where only one session will be held, from 1pm to 2:30pm, starting with athletes born in the year 2009. Hurdles is a unique event.  As athletes move up an age-group each year, it becomes a new event for them, every year up to Senior level, as the Hurdle height and spacing changes.

A beginners/improvers session will be held from 2:30 to 4pm. The following age limits apply:


EventStarting Age
Sprints/Long Jump Born in 2012
Shot Put/High Jump Born in 2010
Hurdles Born in 2009
Discus/Hammer Born in 2008
Javelin Born in 2009
