Dear Parents and Athletes
The Lily B league is open to all girls from the age U11 through to U17. For those who have not competed in this competition before there are A&B selected races for the U13s U15s and U17s and plenty of non-scoring opportunities for all these ages plus U11 non-scoring track and field events. The first fixture is on 30 April at Kingsmeadow Stadium, 422A Kingston Road, Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey. KT1 3PB. (Next to AFC Wimbledon Football Ground).
Your Team Managers for the league this season are Kevin Stroud and Louise Schlaeppi (contact details below). Please let us know by e mail your availability, the events you would like to do and any times/distances you have recorded (these are not essential) two weeks in advance (i.e. now for the first fixture!). This will allow time to organise and declare the team. Athletes can do 3 events plus a relay so it is a good opportunity to try an event you don’t normally do as long as it doesn’t clash with your preferred event. Please talk to your coach regarding the best events to enter.
Selection for our A&B strings will be based on times/distances, coaches advice and the athlete’s attitude to training and competing for the club. But remember there are lots of non-scoring opportunities too and we want to encourage everyone to have a go at competing.
There are 3 matches which culminate in a final in August. The dates for your diaries are as follows:
Saturday 30th April

Parents please encourage your daughters to compete for the club and come and offer your support. Please be aware that we will be unable to supervise the athletes in attendance and all those in the U11/U13 age group will be expected to have an adult present. Please ensure your daughter arrives at least 45 minutes before their event to allow time for them to collect their number and warm up. Their coach will advise them of a pre event warm up and whether they are also able to attend on the day.
Finally as part of our entry into this league the club has to supply officials. Please can you let us know if you can help official at any of these matches. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
Please contact us if you have any queries. Thank you for your continued support.
