Little Athletics Programme Autumn 2016

Little Athletics in Cork

Message from David Matthews,  Cork Athletics Regional Development Officer


On the back of what’s been a very successful Olympics for Ireland (and especially Cork), I have been inundated with requests and queries from Parents who would like to get their Children involved in Athletics. - That’s the good news.


For my own benefit, and in Order to offer the best advice to parents, I’m trying to put together a list of Clubs that have “active” Little Athletic Programmes.

Remembering that a Robust Little Athletic programme is a feeder to Juvenile Athletics.

Obviously I will direct parent to clubs within their locality, but not all clubs have Little Athletics Programmes in place.

I would appreciate it if you can confirm whether or not you have a Little Athletic Programme in Place.

If not, there will be an “Athletic Leader Course” in CIT, in  Sept/Oct (I’ll have all the Coach Ed programmes up on the Web by this day next week) which will provide Coaches with the necessary skill set to develop a Little Athletic Programme in your Club.

Many thanks for taking the time to read this mail - I await your response re “Little Athletics Programme”

Onwards and upwards to the Cross Country season……

Cork Athletics Webmaster Note

The Clubs page on the Cork Athletics website is among the most visited pages on the website - over 1,800 unique visitors to the page in the past month alone.  If YOUR club contact details and other information is incorrect or out of date, YOU are missing out!  All clubs were emailed on the subject, several times, in the past few months - the response from some clubs was great, but there was a deafening silence from most!
