Details of the leagues:
Eastern Young Athletes League (EYAL)
A series of five league matches of good quality each involving six or seven teams.
The major clubs in the league only meet each other once during the season, so the opposition is different at each match. The clubs vary from very strong, to quite small. The majority of the clubs in the league are from Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk. There are also Cup and Plate finals in September.
The league is specifically for all Club athletes who are aged between 11 and 16 on 31st August of the competition year. Athletes compete in their own age group, with the scores for all age-groups totalled to give the overall match result.
Events in the EYAL meets are normally:
100m, 200m, 3/400m (not U13s), 800m, 1500m
Hurdles, Long-jump, High-jump, Triple-jump (U17s only), Pole-vault (not U13s)
Shot, Discus, Javelin, Hammer (not U13s)
4 x 100m relays.
Southern Athletics League (SAL)
This is the track and field league for clubs in the SEAA (South of England Athletics Association) region who wish to compete in joint (male & female) teams. The league matches are for U17 athletes upwards of all abilities. We would love to have a bigger team next season. We have the ability and the numbers of athletes who train each week at the club. Please turn out for your club.
