The team included: Josh and Jacob Shapter, Rosie and Eve Cambell, Alfie Harris, Robert and Francis Hayes, Robyn ??, Zoe White, Holly and Matt Langdon, Livvy Greenway, Cloe Connor, Jack Ts, Finley and Harvey Savage, Hannah and Lauren Carr, Aine and Angus Graham and Lizzy Bumby.

 

Medallists included: Zoe White, Matt Langdon (2), Josh Shapter, Cloe Connor(3), Jack Ts (2), Alfie Harris, Hannah Carr and Rosie Cambell.

 

A huge effort put in by all, with special thanks to Adrian Tucker for his countless dedication and organisation skills, Vince Langdon with helping me out officiate the vortex event and chasing the vortex around the field, throwing it back (defiantly not hitting me on the odd occasion!), Josh Shapters dad for holding and pull the tape measure! and a thank you to the parents for supporting this year’s team. Back to our turn to host and win it again (!) next year!!

  • 1st – Torbay AC,

  • 2nd – Newton Abbot,

  • 3rd SDAC,

  • 4th Dartmouth

 

CHANGE TO GRAND PRIX DATES. 3 REMAINING:

DECEMBER TBC - HIGH JUMP ​

 

Summer training times (to continue until end September) We have completed a plan of this summer’s training schedule and times! (This will be a trail, so if this new approach does not work then we will revert back to the old times and age groups)

 

Sessions will still be at Churston Ferrers Grammar School field. However, there will now be one session that will run from 6pm until 7.45pm for all age groups. Groups will be split into manageable/ coachable groups where athletes will move around on a carousel of activities, trying a bit of running, throwing and jumping in one session. These sessions will start on the first Monday back after half term (13/04/2015).  If you have any concerns on this issue please don’t hesitate to contact us.

 

Vince, Adrian, Kim, Sue and Karen
