Rachel Gilmour is doing a thesis for her degree in conjunction with our architects CRGP and Scottish Athletics and would like your help by completing her survey.

Jim Green 
President KAAC.

 I met with Scottish Athletics and they said that they did consultations with clubs when they were doing research for the facilities strategy. 
So I was interested if this was a method used during the design proceAACss of the new facility for yourselves and if members would have liked to have been involved.

Dear Parent / Athlete of athletes in U17 /U20 age groups

TEAM GLASGOW 2019 Youth Development League (YDL).

This year your son/daughter being a First Claim Member of one of the following: Victoria Park City of Glasgow, Shettleston Harriers, Giffnock North AAC, Kilbarchan AC are eligible for selection to be part of Team Glasgow. If you would like (them) to be considered for selection, please fill in details on attached link. Our matches are at: Carlisle 5th May, Carlisle 26th May, Trafford Manchester30th June and hopefully Sports City Manchester for the final on 8th Sep.

Can you read our “Code of Conduct”

and Scottish Athletics Social Media guidelines (Social Media Guidelines)

After reading above can you click link below and fill in Google document and click submit

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.

Yours sincerely,
