This league is a great entry level for athletes from under 11 age group through to seniors. All juniors and seniors are encouraged to take part.
There are 6 fixtures in the league with all the events are at either Cleckheaton - Princess Mary Stadium, Bradford Road, Liversedge, West Yorkshire WF15 6LW or Wakefield - Thornes Park Stadium, Horbury Road, Wakefield WF2 8TY. The six league meetings are spread across the summer with the first and last being on a week-end and the other 4 being on Wednesday evenings.
Athletes, once entered, can compete at all the fixtures using the same number they are issued with for the season. Each athlete is limited to 3 events maximum in each fixture. Points are scored based on event position for the first 6 athletes in each event. Points accumulated across the fixtures are totalled at the end of the series so the more events you compete in and the more fixtures you attend – the greater the chance of collecting a prize. There is also a team element as well where the clubs end of season total is determined by the sum of their athletes’ totals. So, the more athletes we have entered from Holmfirth scoring points – the better the club does overall.
Ensure you check the rules and guidelines available on the website link below before entering and competing. Athletes wanting to compete need to submit and pay for their own entry. Club vests must be worn. Parents/Carers attending with their junior athletes are encouraged to offer to help with jobs such as sandpit raking etc.
Full details of the various meets are at the foot of this page.
