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 www.pendleac.org.uk and the club’s facebooklyn
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 ???
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.
This is the Burnley U11 Meeting for our Young Athletes – there are no entries on the day. The ones that have taken part over the past years have really enjoyed it and it is an ideal opportunity for the children in Daemon’s group, that fit the age criteria, to have a go at competing.
Should they enjoy the day – there is a further opportunity to compete at an Open Meeting in Blackpool on the 9th of September which caters for the Under 9’s right through to Seniors – I will download an entry form for this because, likewise, there are no entries on the day
Young Athlete Group Monday & Wednesday. Seedhill Track 7-8 p.m.

We had a visit at Pendle AC on Wednesday from Mr Syl Sampey – the Lancashire Schools Team Manager, to present Leah Hillman with the Sheila Markendale Sportsmanship Award. This has been presented to Leah to mark her achievements with Lancashire Schools Athletics but it is not all about performance – it is an all round package, being an ambassador for athletics, a role model to young athletes and impeccable behaviour and enthusiasm through her five years competing at English Schools for Lancashire – superb achievement Leah #beproud x
Also to Alex Baker and Zoe Kidney who this year have represented Lancashire in Birmingham at the English Schools, the third year for Alex and the second year for Zoe – thankyou to Syl for his support and to Derek Butterworth for the years of coaching of these excellent girls.
