The Eastern Young Athletics League is for boys and girls aged 11 to 16, competing in U13, U15 and U17 age groups.

BBDRC juniors have been invited to join a composite team (named ‘North Suffolk’ ) of athletes from Waveney Valley AC and Beccles and Bungay Harriers.

About 25 clubs take part in athletics fixtures held at Ipswich, Norwich, Cambridge and Chelmsford from April to September.

The first event for our athletes will be Saturday 4 May at Ipswich. The meetings run from 11.45 until around 5.30. Athletes can take part in three events each from a range including 100m, 200m, 3/400 metres (not U13s) 800m, 1500m, 4 x 100m relays, hurdles, long jump, high jump, triple-jump (U17s only), shot, discus, javelin.

Other competition dates are: Sunday 2 June (Chelmsford), Sunday 7 July (Cambridge), Sunday 11 August (Norwich).

Please let junior coaches know if your athletes are interested in participating in any/some/all of these meetings.

The team vest has been designed, and it would be good for us to know how many and of what size to purchase.
