NEYDL Track & Field League

North East Youth Development League 2017

The Youth Development League is a friendly introduction to competition for young athletes between the ages of 11 and 16. Each athlete that competes in an event receives points based on the position in which they finish and these points all contribute towards the Team’s final points score.

Last year was another fantastic year despite us being demoted back to Division 2. The team has built again and we scored higher points totals in every match than the previous year. Last year we really developed in terms of team morale and covering the majority of the events especially in the younger age groups. It was great to see so many athletes picking up extra events to earn the team points! With being back in Division 2 we have quite a few home fixtures which should work in our favour.

The main goal for this season is to better our team scores once again and make a strong bid for promotion back to Division 1 so strength and numbers is the key especially in our home fixtures!
