Athletics

Cross Country training will begin after October mid-term. The Schools Cross Country Championships will take place at the end of January.

The Athletics Season will then start after the February mid-term.  We usually prepare for the season with a few weeks of training.  Selection for teams will be done just after Easter.  Events such as High Jump, Shot Putt and Long Jump will be selected for after PE Teachers have had a chance to teach/review class performances.  There may need to be a further trial to select the actual candidates.  The track events such as sprints, middle and long distance running and the relay events will be picked on the track at Santry on a date closer to the regional Leinster Championships.

Anyone interested in representing the school are strongly encouraged to train with some of our local athletics clubs, if possible, in addition to any training in school.  Such clubs include Raheny Shamrocks and Clonliffe Harriers.  Anyone looking for further information regarding athletics or any of the clubs, please contact Mr. Prendergast.
