NI & Ulster Athletes Prepare for the Welsh U20 International

Eight NI and Ulster Athletes will take on teams from England (North, Midlands and South), Scotland and Wales (Wales U20 and Welsh Schools) at the Welsh U20 International in Swansea tonight, Wednesday 25th July 2018.

The International will be a regular fixture for the U20 age group from this year onwards as we look towards strengthening the Athlete Development Pathway and increasing the numbers of athletes successfully transitioning from U17 to U20, U23 and senior age groups. Along with Age Group Major Championships, the Welsh U20 International is an opportunity for athletes to learn performance behaviours including interacting effectively with team coaches, self-management and preparation at championship events.

An educational team meeting was delivered by Athletics NI Development Staff in Cardiff today which covered a number of these areas. Athletics NI plan to continue this education by making it a theme of future camps and competitions now that the Commonwealth Games 2022 cycle is underway.
