As always the team were supported by great vocal encouragement from families & friends  Network Competitions Organiser Tony Benton said “This was the best result from the Essex teams since we returned to the competition in 2011.  The team managers – Wendy & Kirsty Tydeman (U11s) and Karl Sumun & Cathy James (U13s & U15s) – had all done an excellent job in preparing the teams for the event.  Thanks also to Florence Okoro and Fiona McCallum for looking after the Under 11 teams on the day.”

There were wins for both U11 teams: U11 girls and U11 boys, as well as some great individual performances. Thanks to Tony Benton, and all Team Managers, as well as parents and guardians who ensured their children attended the event.

Sportshall Athletics: Regional Team selection

This Autumn there are three fantastic competitions in our area leading to selection for the Regional Sportshall Athletics Finals at Hertfordshire Sporting Village, Hatfield Business Park, Hatfield, Herts AL10 9E on Sunday 12th February 2017 (provisionally 2.30pm start).    This competition is usually against Norfolk, Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire & Bedfordshire.

In order to be eligible for selection for the Essex teams Under 11, Under 13  & Under 15 athletes have to compete in at least one of these three fixtures, preferably including the Chelmsford final.

Under 11s: Team managers – Wendy & Kirsty Tydeman (Basildon AC): A team of up to 15 boys & 15 girls will be selected

Under 13s & Under 15s: Team manager – Karl Sumun & Cathy James (Thurrock Harriers) : A team of up to 12 boys & 12 girls  (U13s) and 6 or 7 boys & 6 or 7 girls (U15s) will be selected.

Team selection takes account of the performances across the three fixtures, but particularly head to head results in the final fixture, and also considers the events to be contested in the Regional Final. There is usually good competition for team places and many strong contenders often don’t make the final team.

The team will be selected as soon as possible after the final meeting on 10th December 2016. Successful athletes will be advised of their selection and proposed team practice sessions which provisionally will be held on Sundays 15th  & 29th January (pm) at Chelmsford. Selected athletes will be responsible for making their own transport arrangements to the Regional Final.

Sports Hall Athletics
The aims of Athletic Networks include to:

grow and sustain participation levels in the sport
improve the quality of experience for all participants
improve levels of athlete performance

In support of this the Essex Athletic Network aims to deliver a programme of Sportshall, leading to the participation of Essex teams in the Regional finals, and also QuadKids, supporting the inclusion of QuadKids in the Essex summer games.

 


SPORTSHALL ATHLETICS is an indoor form of track and field for children between the ages of 4 and 16.  It was created by George Bunner MBE to provide a safe and warm environment for young athletes to train during the cold and dark winter months. Sportshall quickly developed into a new form of team competition and the first ever Sportshall competition took place in 1976 with the annual UK CLUBS CHAMPIONSHIPS being established in 1984.

Today Sportshall is the largest competition within the School Games framework and with an estimated user-base of well over 1 million children, Sportshall has more participants than any other School Sport Competition. The programme focusses on fitness and multi-skill development providing a grounding for all sports. It is totally inclusive, encourages children to get fit and promotes friendship whilst having lots of fun. Additionally, Sportshall promotes a wide range of community benefits as it provides a focus for mums, dads and grandparents to actively come and support their children.  Sportshall also provides a stepping stone into after-schools sporting activity.
