Weekly Notes – 26th April 2021

Juvenile and Little Athletics Return to Training

Juvenile and Little Athletics return this Friday 30 April at 6.30pm and we look forward to seeing our young members back as well as the new members starting with the club. We have received a lot of interest and the start time may be altered for subsequent Fridays to cater for the numbers of children. This will be confirmed and communicated in due course via email and the Longford AC Facebook page.

Training sessions will be structured in accordance with Athletics Ireland guidelines. Each child will be allocated to a group of at most 14 members of similar age. Details regarding training, including the health screening form which must be completed by a parent on behalf of their child prior to each session, have been emailed out. 

Help from Parents

Club training aims to be fun, varied and carried out in a safe manner. With this in mind, we very much welcome help from parents such as with assisting our coaches with the supervision of a group to ensure the smooth running of the session.

Athletics Ireland Registration

All children attending must be registered for 2021 with membership to be processed using the Athletics Ireland website by 6 May. The membership fee is €25 per child. Once one completes the online renewal or new registration process, a confirmation email is received from Athletics Ireland. For any queries, such as retrieving an existing membership number, please email

Senior Training

There is currently no confirmation yet as to when senior training can return as we await the next Government announcement regarding the easing of restrictions.
