Monday Young Athlete Group.

We are back at Seedhill track on Monday, 25 March, 7- 8 p.m.  Don’t forget you have to pay at reception to use the track – presently £3.90.  If you have an ACTIVO card, it has been confirmed, that it can be used – there has been some confusion recently regarding the use of these cards on ‘club nights’. The money for using the track is collected by Pendle Leisure Trust and does not go to the club.  If you need any information regarding the ACTIVO pass speak to Gavin at Seedhill – it does work out cheaper if you know your child will be regularly attending the coaching sessions and it can also be used at the swimming pools and some junior gym sessions.

The Monday Young Athlete group will return to Fisher More on Monday, 25 February and we anticipate the last indoor session will be on Monday, 18 March, returning to Seedhill on the 25th March.

Dear Team Managers

An advert for the course is attached.
If you can, will you please pass this on to your members or display it on your club website and let them have the information below.

The session will familiarize candidates with the MLL’s defibrillator and with CPR, as well as taking a wider approach of what to do in different emergency situations as well as heart attacks.

The session will take place in the suite at the back of St. Saviour’s Church, Church Road, Bamber Bridge PR5 6EP on Tuesday 26th February starting at 7:30pm and lasting for about two and a half hours.

There is no charge for the course. There is ample parking in Church Road which is a wide cul-de-sac.

Thank you and kind regards,


We have been down to assess the track in respect of the ice and have made the decision to cancel sessions tonight (Wednesday) as the high jump area is covered in ice and snow and the track has large sections of ice on it – your safety is paramount. The throwing area also has ice on it – Derek has taken the decision to cancel the throwers also.


We have been told over the weekend that Fisher More has moved the date of their mock exams and will need use of the sportshall on Monday, 21 and Monday, 28 January.  Usually, if the hall is needed it is just for a week.  As it is a fortnight there will be training at Seedhill track, 7-8 p.m. on Monday, 21st and 28th January, returning to Fisher More on Monday, 4 February.


Please find attached the Entry Form for the above Championships – the closing date for online entries is Monday 17th December 2018

If anyone is interested please let us know.


INDOOR TRAINING AT FISHER MORE – Letter given out at Fisher More on Monday, 15 October.

There will be no training on Monday, 22 October (when most local primary schools are on holiday) at Fisher More as we will not have coaches/officials to run the session – two are on holiday the half-term week.   Usually, Fisher More has a similar half-term to the majority of Primary schools so we have not used the hall, as from past experience over many years, just a few athletes turn up for the session. This year, Fisher More’s half-term is a week later but, they have confirmed today that we can use the hall during their half-term on Monday, 29 October.

Therefore, there will be no session on Monday, 22 October for the Young Athlete group but we will return to use Fisher More on Monday, 29 October 7-8 p.m.

Dates when the school needs the Sportshall for mock exams have not yet been received; we will let you know as soon as possible.  Details will also go on the club’s website and the club’s facebooklyn

Training on Wednesday, 23 October at Seedhill is as usual, 7-8 p.m.

Hi, it is the first of the Cross Countries on Saturday – the first at Leigh (Red Rose) and the second at Ulverston (Mid Lancs). If anyone is thinking of going to either of them could you please let me know as you could collect the Pendle numbers for me as I cannot go this week due to me collecting Alex. We are looking for the younger athletes to take part in the Hyndburn and Towneley Park fixtures – in order that we have enough vests for everyone – you must let me know if you are running as you need to run in a Club vest.

Here are the Red Rose and Mid Lancs Cross Country Fixtures for 2018/2019. If you are at all interested in doing them can you please let Christine or myself know ASAP as we need to register your names prior this year. We have a few names down already – are there any new members in David’s group interested ???


pac fixture ML and RR XC 2018 -19 Amended

Dear Parents,


We can now confirm that we shall be hiring Fisher More High School’s sports hall for indoor training on Monday evenings for the club’s Young Athletes’ group.


Training indoors will commence on MONDAY, 8 October, 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. and will continue until the middle of MARCH 2019.  Athletes using the facility will be charged £2.00 to cover the cost of the hire.  Athletes should meet and be collected inside school and parents can be assured that an official from the club will remain at the school until all athletes have been collected.  There will be some Mondays when we will not be allowed to use the school sportshall – half-term holidays and when the hall is used for mock exams but we will notify you of these dates.


Therefore, after, Monday, 1 October, the outdoor Monday sessions at Seedhill track for the Young Athletes’ Group will discontinue until March 2019, when we will return to the track.  The Sprint, Endurance and Throws groups remain at Seedhill track throughout the winter and the Wednesday sessions for young athletes (7-8 p.m.) also continue at the track throughout the winter.


All children who wish to train with the club MUST be members; their details are stored on an England Athletics database which ensures they have insurance cover and the club also takes out extra cover in a Personal Accident insurance policy recommended by UK Athletics. The club will then also have full contact details, emergency contact details and any medical information which may need to be taken into consideration by club coaches.


Several young athletes have been training at Seedhill for a considerable time and have not returned their membership form with the annual membership fee.  The forms need to be completed and the fee paid before we start indoor training at Fisher More; we must ensure that all athletes are on our database and have full insurance cover.  Our coaches should not be coaching athletes who do not have insurance cover.
