Eastern Young Athletes’ League (EYAL) 2021

INTRODUCTION

The EYAL is an athletics league for boys and girls in Year 6 – Year 11. This year we will only be competing against local clubs with 3 fixtures, during July, August and September.

This is a great opportunity for athletes to compete in a friendly league while representing the club! There is no cost to take part and athletes are able to compete in multiple events and earn points for the team. We also require parents to volunteer at least once during the EYAL season (you can specify your preference on the form).

The events are 100m, 200m, 300m/400m (not U13s), 800m, 1500m, Hurdles, Long-jump, High-jump, Triple-jump (U17s only), Pole-vault (not U13s), Shot, Discus, Javelin, Hammer (not U13s), 4x100m relays. Athletes are able to compete in a maximum of three individual events, plus the possibility of taking part in a relay. U13s and U15s are only allowed to enter one race greater than 600m in any one day. U13 athletes are not allowed to run 300m or 400m events at all. U15 Girls and U17 Women race over 300m instead of 400m.
