Fourth SAL match 4th July - Call for Athletes

After a storming home match which saw the Serpie team score a massive 376 points to win, we're back in a strong position for promotion in the Southern Athletics League next season, but WE MUST WIN our next two matches. The penultimate fixture of the season is on Saturday 4th July at the Woodside Stadium, Watford, Herts.

Events where you can compete are:
100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, 5000m men AND women, 100/110m hurdles, 400m hurdles, 2000m steeplechase (men) or 1500m steeplechase (women), 4 x 100m relay, 4 x 400m relay
High jump, long jump, triple jump, pole vault, shot, discus, javelin, hammer

Two scorers are needed for each event and non-scorers are welcome. We also really want our U17 and U20 young athletes to compete as part of the team.

5000m race for women
This is the first time the SAL has agreed to a 5000m race for women, and we want to see a good turn out for the race as we were one of the clubs pushing for it to be on the timetable. So if you don't normally do track and field as you think it's too short - this race is for you. Please note it will be held as a separate race from the men's 5000m.

Email the team captains to sign up and info. Any standard is welcome: it is a very sociable event and you never know what you could be good at until you try it. 

Women’s team captain: email Lisa Pettit 
Men’s team captain: email Nick Barberis

Officials needed

As well as athletes we also need to provide officials and helpers to help with the field and track events: no previous experience needed and any contribution will be highly appreciated. Plus, you can contribute as well to our team's score, as helpers score points as well!

Helpers needed as follows:

  • Field officials and helpers
  • Track officials and timekeepers

Please get in contact with Steph Vaatz to sign up.
