The purpose of entering this League is to offer Under 17/20 athletes such as your son/daughter UK competition and the opportunity to compete against athletes of their own age at a higher level of competition as they prepare for the transition to the Senior Age Group in the UK Leagues. This League will offer an opportunity to compete against athletes from some of the top English Clubs.
The format is the same as in previous years, we travel to and from matches as a TEAM:- Everybody pulling their weight: everyone pulling in the same directions: sharing an exciting vision of winning the final and going to Europe.
Being a team event we have to enter a strong team and for this reason I am afraid that as Team Manager I may ask you to compete in other events after your main event. Fielding a full team though would reduce this requirement as we have 120 events to cover.
Please complete attached as soon as possible before 31st March 2019. Please remember to discuss this letter with your coach. There may be unavoidable clashes with other league Matches however I would hope that this can be resolved and Team Glasgow will be successful.
I look forward to the Season 2019 and hope that you are willing to be part of our team in this league and challenge.
