Good afternoon parents and athletes,

I have received the following document from Boland Athletics, the document is in connection with hosting of Schools Athletics during Covid19 Lockdown Level 3.
 
Unfortunately, high schools in the Boland and other school structures will not host any events under COVID-19 Lockdown Level 3 as stipulated in the Department of Basic Education Regulations. No High Schools Athletics Championship will be hosted in 2021. 
 
However, athletes still wanting to compete can join a club and receive a permanent ASA Licence number. These athletes should then participate in the Boland Leagues, over the next few weeks. These will act as trials to make the Boland Team to the  Athletics South Africa U16, U18 and U20 Track & Field Championships scheduled for 7 to 11 April 2021 at Dal Josaphat Stadium in Paarl. 
 
Please note: 
 
  • O/20:  18 or 19 years on 31st December in the year of competition
  • O/18: 16 or 17 years on 31st December in the year of competition
  • O/16:  14 or 15 years on 31st December in the year of competition
My suggestion would be to join the Stellenbosch Athletics Club – a junior membership (athletes under 20) costs R100.00 and includes a permanent license number. Athletes are responsible to enter themselves into the competitions, as well as for their own transport and competition costs.
 
For all athletes who would like to continue racing and try out for the Boland athletics team, please fill out the following google form: bit.ly/BolandTryOuts (deadline: 3 March 2021)
 
For the athletes who train at school, we will continue to provide coaching if you would like to try out for the Boland athletics team. Please fill out the following google forms for training next week – please do so before Sunday 28 March at 12:00.
 
Kind regards
 
Coach Justine
