Livingston Open Graded 22 April 2013

Livingston Open Graded

Only one adult sprinter and one u15 Lasswade AC representative at Livingston AC’s open graded last night. Whilst both ran well it left me thinking why were there not more Lasswade runners, throwers and jumpers ?

These events are fantastic opportunities for our younger athletes to be blooded in some competition. There are children of all standards so they can compete without the pressure of team competition.

Grangemouth have an open graded on 6 May and for the East Lothian a meeting on 9 May. Both are taking entries now. If we want to compete in FVL and YDL leagues these meetings are a good way to prepare them for competition. It also provides performances that allow coaches to make selections for team events.

Come on give them a try.

For last nights results

Grangemouth Open Graded online entry

I have received notification that the open graded meetings at Grangemouth this year are online enty only .

The following has been received and we are advised that a large entry is expected. Numbers will be capped so don’t delay or face disappointment

Please note that entry is online only. Entries via , this will take you to Scottish Schools entries page. You will see FCT logo and Grangemouth Stadium’s details below.

As most of you will be aware, last year we were completely bombarded with entries on the night and unfortunately it was not a pleasant experience for coaches, athletes and stadium staff alike.

This is our first time trying it this way and I am sure it will be a vast improvement to the process.

Declarations will be in the ‘wooden gym’, for athletes to collect their numbers. This will be their number for each event on that particular evening.
Please encourage your athletes to enter as soon as possible as all event numbers are capped.
