County T&F Championships 2019

Dear all Timetables for Mini League matches now attached. No running order changes this year although there is now a start time for the second half of the track programme, allowing time for track officials to have a quick comfort break and a prompt re-start.
Please submit your athletes’ names and allocated race number using the dec sheet provided to Trevor Jolly firstname.lastname@example.org BEFORE match 1, ideally in the week before. He does not need to know which events each athlete is doing. Results on the day cannot be processed for all to see if Trev is spending all morning inputting names and numbers. Please help him to help our athletes and for a smooth running of the day by sending in advance.
Please share timetables and the rules doc with your team managers and officials. All clubs must be aware of the imperative need for track judges, timekeepers and field teams, suitably qualified for long throws, and the rota as shown in the rules. As always field officials need to be sensitive to the inevitable event clashes and allow athletes to leave and return to an event as necessary (some HJ exceptions - see rules relating to HJ competition) provided the overall allocated time for each discipline / age group is not compromised. At the heart of Mini League is the informality in which young athletes learn the competition environment whilst still adhering to competition rules and Mini League ethos.
Any queries please ask.
Please find attached details for this years Derbyshire Mini League track and field fixtures. Please forward as necessary to your club team managers and officials. If your club will not be taking part this year please let me know.
I will forward declaration sheets and match timetables at a later date.
One small change for this year so far - the U9’s races will now be for those aged 6, 7 or 8 years of age on the day in an effort to contribute towards keeping to time.
Please note that the dates chosen (and I use that word begrudgingly!) have once again been particularly difficult this year. There has been NO choice. Every available Saturday at Moorways is either booked OR it would mean a double weekend for our athletes,parents and officials. I have deliberately not selected ANY Saturday date which would been a YDL lower or a Heart of England League (AVEAC only) weekend, saving our young athletes competing on both a Saturday and a Sunday. The dates left by the time you take out schools, Mason Trophy, County Champs, National sportshall finals (where Derbyshire usually have teams) are those on holiday weekends or even where there are other clashes. It is an impossible situation but one that we must make the best of.
