North East Youth Development League 2021

The Youth Development League is an introduction to competition for young athletes between the ages of 11 and 16. There are 4 meetings across the course of the outdoor season each at a different venue (but all relatively local). Each athlete is awarded points for the team determined by the position they finish in an event – points are awarded even if you’re last so it’s worth trying an event you may not normally compete in but have had a bit coaching.

This year we want as many athletes to get involved as possible – it is a great day out with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and you get to meet lots of new people. Google Form Sign Up sheets are provided a few weeks before each event and the Final Team selection is published from this. We are in Division 1 and we need a strong team that can cover the majority of events so we can maintain top division status.

Team Management this year will be Laura Mole, Stella Perrett, Evie Perrett and James Mole who will select and manage the teams on the day. Please contact them with any queries and they have a Track and Field Instagram account @trackandfieldnsp for updates (Give it a follow). Updates will also be provided on Track and Field – North Shields Poly Facebook Page.

Any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to ask us:

You can find us on club nights with the sprint group.
