Carlow County Community Games Finals June 23rd & 24th in Ardattin Field

The Community Games county finals will take place Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th in Ardattin field. There will be NO training on Friday 22nd training will take place on  Tuesday and Wednesday the 19th and 20th, 6.45-7.30 u6&u8 . 7.30-8.30 u10+ on both days.. We will be focussing on relays so please try to have all children attend so that they can practice with their team.

Saturday 23rd: All children are requested to participate in the Community Games Parade. It is an important part of the day and very enjoyable for the children.

  • All Slaney Valley participants are requested to meet at our tent no later than 45am on Saturday morning to assemble for the Parade.
  • Athletic Gear will be provided (for all athletes taking part in individual events). We will provide gear for as many others as we can for the parade also. All children can wear their own black shorts and white socks. We ask that all gear be returned on Saturday before leaving the field. It will be washed and given out on Sunday to those participating in the semi-finals/finals on Sunday. Each year a number of jerseys “go missing” so we ask that everyone co-operate with our request not to bring jerseys home on Saturday evening.  Children should therefore bring their own t-shirt to change into.
  • When the parade is finished all children must return immediately to the tent as races will start directly after the parade. No parents allowed on the running track only managers.
  • Parents are asked to listen out for races, field events and relays and keep the children close to the tent so they do not miss their event.
  • The normal procedure is U6’s first then U8, 10, 12 ETC. U6 and U8 will be finished by lunch time (approx 1pm) on Saturday but may have to come back Sunday. Field events will be called out so please listen.
  • There will be a break for lunch at 1.00pm approx and the races will resume after, however some field events may take place during lunch – times to be confirmed.
  • Please leave a contact number if your child gets through to Sunday in case of any changes in times etc.
  • If your child is not going to participate/ for queries please contact Deirdre 087 1171881, Barry 087 9197559 or Martina 087 9960357 as soon as possible.
  • Looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday 23rd.
