Welcome to the Forth valley League

The league is for young athletes from u11 to u15 age groups both boys and girls. There are 2 matches then a final followed by a President’s select match.

The league is a springboard for young athletes to develop and progress in their athletics career. Many of Scotland’s international athletes started out competing in the league.

Object

To encourage youngsters to actively participate irrespective of their ability in athletic activities (whether in a team /individual setting) where the emphasis is on having fun whilst trying to improve the individual’s health /fitness levels.

To promote athletics as a family sport through the provision of encouraging Parents to volunteer as officials during the events under the guidance of qualified UK Athletic Officials & ultimately become qualified officials themselves.

To help member clubs make all forms of athletics as attractive as possible through the promotion of competition and such other activity as the member clubs consider it worthwhile to promote.

We hope you are safe and well. You will have seen Scottish Athletics updates this week advising that they do not expect any events taking place before the end of June. Leagues and events licences for dates until the 31st May have also been suspended.

As things change daily, there is every possibility of these dates being extended and also taking into account he age of many of the officials who regularly support the Forth Valley League it is with regret that we have decided the best course of action is to cancel the league for the coming season. The 2021 season will commence from the closing position in 2019.

We hope you understand why this decision has been reached. On a positive note it does provide time to review the league’s constitution and put changes to the AGM. It is hoped when a semblance of normality returns officials courses will be available for clubs to boost the number of officials they have available to assist at matches.

Please all take care and stay safe. Hope to see you at an athletics event in the future.

Kind regards,

Mike, John, Andy and Gary
