Avon Schools Athletics Association

 

Cross-Country

District Trials or Championships

A trial or championship event is held in each district in November / December for Minor, Junior, Intermediate and Senior age groups.  Your DISTRICT will send out all the required information through your school sports teachers.

 

Avon Schools Championships

The Avon Schools Championships is usually held in January, for Minor, Junior, Intermediate  and Senior age groups.  You will receive all of the information via your district.

Each District will select a cross-country team based upon performances in their trials and/or championships.  If selected, you will represent your district at the Avon Schools County Championships.  Unless your district has a special vest then you should wear your school shirt/vest.

Please would seniors, who have previously been selected for the county and who have moved to a 6th form college, let the county team manager know of their whereabouts in order to receive an invitation to this event.

On arrival at the venue you must report to your DISTRICT TEAM MANAGER.

Athletes that finish in the top 10 will receive a contact and availability information form.  You must complete this and return it to an AVON team manager before you leave – otherwise you may not be considered for selection. Team Managers will be around the finish area and wearing AVON KIT.

South West Schools Championships

The South West Schools Championships is usually held in the 1st / 2nd weekend, for Minor, Junior, Intermediate and Senior age groups.  

We will select a team of 10 in each age group for both boys and girls for the South West Schools Championships.  Selection will take place immediately after the county championships.  The first 4 at in each race will get automatic selection.  The other 6 places will be based on current form and position at the county championships

If you are selected for the South West Schools Championships you will be representing AVON and will be required to wear the county vest.

If selected you will receive all of the information required from the Avon team managers in the form of a letter.  There will be a kit order form, a parental consent form and a medical form.

English Schools Championships

The English Schools Championships is usually held in the 2nd weekend in March, for Junior, Intermediate and Senior age groups.  

Usually we will select a team of 8 in each age group for both girls and boys to represent Avon in the English Schools Championships.  The first 4 Avon finishers in each race at the South West Schools will get automatic selection.  The other 4 places will be selected upon performances in both the County and the South West Championships.

If you are selected for English Schools you will be representing AVON and will be required to wear full county kit.
