Guide to the Event 2024

  1. Each session lasts approximately 2 hours, starting promptly. If schools have any problems on the day with transport, please contact the event team immediately on 07792187157. Please make sure you arrive within plenty of time, we advise 30 minutes prior to event start.
  2. Supervision: Each school should provide enough adults to supervise the children – allowing for toilet escorts as the toilets are behind the main stand.
  3. Refreshments: There will be refreshments available to purchase in the club house but schools are advised to arrange their own food and drinks for their children.
  4. Numbers: You will be provided with numbers for each child but you will need to provide your own safety pins to secure these to each child’s t-shirt. Please ensure that all your team is in the same colour kit. Athletes need to wear numbers on their front only.
  5. Parents/Spectators: Parents/spectators are NOT permitted.
  6. First Aid: First Aid is provided.
  7. Information will regularly be announced over the PA system – please make sure you are listening for any announcements – especially when it comes to calling athletes for finals races. It would be helpful if staff with the teams could keep a note of any finalists so they know who is required when we get to the finals races
  8. Warm Ups: Please ensure all children are ready to take part in their activities and lead your own warm ups.
  9. Parking. There is limited parking on site at the Blackshots Leisure Centre with some parking available directly at the track accessible via Springfield Road.
  10. After the event, schools are asked to leave the track area straight away ensuring their area is clear of any litter and wait for their coaches in the waiting area by Blackshots Leisure Centre. This is particularly important for the morning groups as we need a breathing space, free of children, to set up again for the afternoon. We also need to protect the equipment set out by removing children as soon as possible from the vicinity.
