Derbyshire Institute of Sport The Derbyshire Institute of Sport (DIS) are welcoming applications from Derbyshire sportsmen and women. All athletes who hope to be part of the programme for 2017 - 18 need to apply during the current window. Applications close on 7th July. The application form is online at http://derbyshireis.co.uk/get-involved/athlete-application/ . Key criteria and standards are given on the DIS website. All athletes must be currently performing in the U17 age group and above as a minimum requirement. There are currently 11 Derbyshire athletes receiving additional services such as physiotherapy, strength and conditioning support via the DIS bases across the county. (20th June 2017) UK Inter Counties Competition The UK Inter Counties Union Athletics Championships will be held at the Bedford International Stadium on 29th and 30th July 2017. This is in conjunction with the England Athletics Senior AAA’s Championships. As previous years, Derbyshire is invited to enter two athletes per event into the Inter County Championships, providing the athletes have entered the England Championships in the normal way, and they have met the required entry standard. Both Championships have separate medals but all races and field event competitions are joint, and the entry standards are mostly identical. Athletes cannot enter the Inter County event alone. All athletes must have entered the England Championships, be a registered athlete and paid the entry fee. U20’s can enter provided they attain the entry standard. Please note that senior throwing implements and hurdle height spacings will be used. Any athlete with a Derbyshire qualification by birth, residence or Armed Forces posting will be entered into the Inter County event if they so wish. Some may find this useful as this counts towards end of year national Merit Rankings. Entries into the England Championships must be made by the athlete themselves. Entries into the Inter County event can only be made thereafter by contacting the Derbyshire event secretary for this competition. Please contact Julie Feeney email@example.com if you wish to be entered, deadline 6th July. Please give you name, DoB, EA registration number, event and pb. If there are more than two athletes per event from Derbyshire only the top two based on Power of 10 rankings will be selected (but this does not affect the entry into the England Championships). Further details can be found on www.englandathletics.org and www.ukcau.co.uk
