Level 1 officials course - T&F Print

Ray Morgan at WCAA writes >

I am pleased to say that we have some very local opportunities for your Club to get beginners onto the officials ladder. Please pass this information to your Club Officials Secretary if you have one. It would be a good idea to also pass the information to your team managers because at this time of year they have probably "press ganged" some unqualified parents or friends of athletes into helping out at events and hopefully they enjoyed it. They are ideal candidates to take the level 1 course.

To become "graded/qualified" the candidate has to take a course and do 4 meetings but meeting done already before the course can still count. Please reassure candidates that there is no exam so nothing stressful to put anybody off going.

There are courses at Nuneaton on the 14th June and the 28th June. I have attached a "flyer" for those for you to put on your Club noticeboard.

No officials means no competition so do your best to encourage as many newbies as possible to take the first grade.


Flyer can be found here .

Rob Mills is going to see if the club will cover the cost of the course. This page will be updated as soon as confirmation is available.

Grahame Cooper's Sponsored Rowing Event Print

Grahame Cooper hasn't been able to run with the club for a while but fortunately he has been able to continue his rowing in which he competes at a national level. 
Grahame is involved in a sponsored rowing event for charity next Sunday and has been in contact:
On Sunday May 21st, I am doing a 10K row as part of a 3 day rowing event at the Touchwood Shopping Centre in Solihull to raise funds for The Brain Tumour Charity.
Grahame has set up an on-line donations page here .

I am sure everyone at the club will join me in wishing Grahame all the best in this event and hope you will consider sponsoring him for this worthwhile cause.

Sparkhill Harriers’ Awards Evening, 7th April 2017 (pictures added 3/5/17) Print
It was a delight to see so many members and guests at Sparkhill Harriers' first awards evening for many years at the Old Edwardian Sports Club on Friday evening. It was a marvelous opportunity to celebrate the successes of both young and senior athletes of the Club during the 2016-7 cross-country and 2016 track and field season as well as to display and present some of our historic trophies.
Ladies Winners

Congratulations to all those who received awards and many, many thanks to all the coaches, event officials, team managers and members of the committee for the valuable time, effort and inspiration that they inject into the Club.

We wish all Sparkhill Harriers all the best for the forthcoming track and field season and we are looking forward to seeing you all again at next year's awards evening at the end of the 2017-18 cross-country season!
Senior ladies enjoying the evening
