Update from Athletics South

Athletics South have provided an update to members about track unavailability during the normal training times, as well as some patience around the photo finish system.

The OVA Southern Saints with to pass on this update from Helen Lee, courtesy of Athletics South:

"Good evening,

Just a little bit of information prior to the start of the Track & Field season this coming Saturday.

As you all would be aware Athletics South have purchased  a new photo finish system which we will be using for only the second time this coming Saturday.

Our regular photo finish officials have had two training session with the new equipment, and hopefully have ironed out any issues, but I am asking for a little bit of [patience] from all coaches and athletes over  the next couple of weeks as we try to master the new system.

Once our regular photo finish officials are confident with the system we will be conducting some training sessions for people interested in learning  photo finish.  I will advise you all once a date has been set.

Secondly I have been advised by the HCC that the  following Athletics South  Sunday training times of 10.00am-12.00 are not available due to other bookings which are “all day” events 

They are as follows:

Sunday 30th October

Sunday 5th November

Sunday 20th November

Sunday 12th March 2017

Sunday 19th March 2017

Sunday 26th March 2017

Every endeavour  will  be made by Athletics South to secure some training  times following the completion of the above events but this will not be known until closer to the time and you will all be advised accordingly.

Many thanks in anticipation of your understanding with the above issues.

Kind regards
