Warwickshire County AA

Track & Field Championships

We have not forgotten the Under 11s – the athletes of the future.

The Warwickshire Under 11 Championships will be held on Wednesday 25th August at Edmondscote Stadium, Leamington Spa – in the AFTERNOON.

 

We usually hold the Under 11 Championships alongside the other age groups but this year we have decided to hold it on a day dedicated just to them. Note that we are experimenting a little by holding it in the afternoon which is unusual but hopefully more convenient for many than an evening or weekend meeting.

 

The event will use the Quadkids format, as always, so each athlete will do four events – Long Jump, Howler Throw, 75m sprint and 600m run – then the performances are converted to points and added up. Every competitor will get a certificate on which they can record their score and the three highest scoring boys and girls will get a County medal.

 

The basic details are:-

Venue is Edmondscote Stadium, Leamington Spa

Parking is free

Entrants must have been born in Warwickshire or live in Warwickshire – but the old Warwickshire which includes Coventry, Solihull, Sutton Coldfield and most of Birmingham.

Athletes must have been in school years 3, 4,   5,  or  6 in the term just finished. If you are interested in entering but dont qualify then send us a mail (see enquiries below).

All of the athletes will be awarded a certificate on which they can record their scores, and, the first 3 boys and first 3 girls in school years 4 and 5 (combined ) only will be awarded a medal.

Start time for all athletes is 13.00 – but you should arrive at least 45 minutes before then to collect your number and familiarise yourself with the surroundings – and warm up.

Several Awards are made after the event to the club and individuals who produce the best performances

The Warwick Vase is for the Best Club Overall. Stratford retained the trophy in 2021 for the fifth year running.
The Jack Hartley Trophy is for the best individual performance and in 2021 it was awarded to madeleine Whapples of Solihull and Small Heath AC.

We also give an award to the best performance in each group. It is difficult to compare different events and the results are often very close.

The Coronation Cup goes to the best performance with an endurance element and in 2021 it was awarded to Jai Sispal of Leamington C & AC

You can see all of the past award winners and the updated County Records on the Results/Trophies page of this web site.
Thanks to Bob Carey for his management of the awards, medals and trophies.
