From School PE lesson

to

International Athlete

  • There are approximately 60 secondary schools or colleges in the county.
      • We communicate with ALL either by:
          • Area Secretaries
          • SSAA Secretary
          • Championship Organisers
          • SSAA Team Managers

Schools, therefore, know about our activities.

  • But our activities are also posted on the SSAA website for ALL to see :
          • Students
          • Parents
          • Coaches
          • Teachers
  • We also have a very good relationship with the Athletic Clubs within the County.
  • They too are informed of our activities so they can inform their
          • Athletes

By taking part today YOU are now part of the Association.

  • Keep asking your teachers for information about :
        • Cross-Country
        • Track & Field
        • Combined Events
  • Because the first step on the ladder is to be entered by your school into an Area Championships.
  • Having had their championship the area selects a team to compete at the County Championships – that’s when you start to meet us.
