IMPORTANT NOTES FOR TEAM MANAGERS - PLEASE READ THEM ALL!

Juniors - The athlete's age is as at 1 September prior to the race.

Universities - Please only record the discs that ARE IN YOUR ENVELOPE. If the athlete is also representing their first claim club their disc will be in that envelope.

Seniors - Please record age groups on the result envelope i.e. Masters age group or Under 23

All athletes - Please apply some consistency with athletes names (in particular their forenames). This will help to maintain cumulative scores. e.g. Elizabeth and Lizzie may be scored as DIFFERENT athletes.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please note that it is a requirement of the league that race fees are either pre-paid or paid on the day. Failure to do so may result in forfeit of points.

Please also be reminded that abuse of any kind to officials, competitors or spectators will not be tolerated and may also result on the loss of points if the perpertrators are identified.

Athletes representing First Claim clubs and Universities

Athletes who are first claim members of athletics clubs within the catchment area who are also eligible to represent their University must do the following:
* Wear their first-claim club vest when competing
* Be declared for their club and indicate their University
* Be declared for their University on a separate form
* Ensure that the result disc is in their club envelope
* Note on the result envelope that they wish to count for their university
* Team Managers - PLEASE only record the discs that are in the envelope!

This information will be posted int the Rules of Competition shortly.

There will be a University Division within the Senior Men and Senior Women competitions.

First Claim athletes from outside the catchment area will be able to compete for their university as before.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

TEAM MANAGERS
There is still a large number of team managers handing in envelopes without their club name on - this is not helpful!!
It would be an idea to complete this detail as soon as you collect your envelopes!!
Please also indicate the age group of athletes in the senior races.

We are still short of volunteers to help the League run smoothly. If you can help in any capacity please contact any of the League officials.
