  • Hi All, We had a very successful registration day last Saturday. We are not yet full and there are some places still remaining. As previously stated we are no longer offering a pay as you go system. In order to guarantee a place and avoid disappointment please try to register ASAP. To facilitate this Jeff will be at the club Monday Jan 18th from 6:45 and Fiona will be with the little athletes as normal. Thanks

  • Training tomorrow night, January 14, at the track from 7:00 till 8:00 with Nick (High Jump), and Rachel (middle to long distance). Hope to see you all there.


  • If you have a free hour on Saturday between 12 and 4 pm we would be grateful if you could give us a hand with registration at the track. Please let Jeff know on Wednesday or by email, crookstownmv@gmail.com, if you are available to help. Thanks very much.


  • Club registration day for all athletes is this Saturday, January 16th, from 12 to 4 pm. Please note, for health and safety reasons and to ensure the continued high standard of coaching for all athletes we will be enforcing a cut-off for membership numbers. Therefore you will need to register and pay full membership fee this Saturday to guarantee a place. Please also note that we will no longer have a trial membership/pay as you go set up. Any surplus athletes will be put on a waiting list. Little athletes please be aware that these places fill up quickly. Looking forward to seeing you this Saturday. If you have any queries regarding this please email club at crookstownmv@gmail.com or send a message on Facebook.

Nothing fancy, all contributions are welcome.  We are trying to get a balance between sweet and savoury so if you are willing to contribute please let me know (ASAP) by club email (crookstownmv@gmail.com) or Facebook post and we will add it to the list.  Thanks and looking forward to seeing everyone on the day.
