 Junior Inter Counties - 9th September 2017 - Nuneaton

 The Leicestershire & Rutland Team has been announced. The events for each athlete will be finalised once we have information about availability. The teams will be kept informed as early as possible. The list of athletes is on the county Facebook page as well as on the News Page of this website.

 The selection process for the county teams is slightly different for this event as the competition is not part of the UKA (Counties Athletic Union) Inter County structure. Each of the seven counties have their own different selection policy and the details of the history and rules of the event are available on this link.

The current selection policy was approved by Leicestershire & Rutland AA about seven years ago. It has proved successful in ensuring the best possible county team (we have won the competition 3 times in the past 7 years!). It has also led to new athletes joining county clubs when they previously had been more involved in other sports. 

The policy is this: The top 2 ranked athletes for every event are selected. This includes the results from the County Schools competition as well as the Power of 10 rankings. The County School results are not always shown on the Power of 10 rankings. Not all events are hosted each year at the Inter county competition and this particularly affects the selection for field events and for middle distance races. For example there are no pole vault events and no triple jump; there is only one middle distance race for the Under 13s (which alternates in distance each year).

 The current manager is Kelly Phiri and she has managed and selected the team in seven previous years. She has always worked closely with the County Secretary and reports to the committee in the same way as other managers do. Very rarely or occasionally an athlete has been overlooked and the county association  encourages athletes/parents/coaches to contact Kelly or the association in such circumstances. 

Injury and illness and excellent performances later in the season may change the selection list. Kelly will send information to all concerned as quickly as possible to ensure the best team is chosen for the county. The list on Facebook and on the newspage of this website includes some names with asterisks. We do not yet have the contact details for these athletes and would appreciate any help you can give if you know these people.

This year the county should have organised the event in Leicester. We were unable to find anyone to take this on and so Warwickshire have kindly done this for us in Nuneaton (although we are paying all the bills and organising the technical officials and helpers!!)
