Congratulations to our Girls 5-a-Side Soccer Team who finished runners-up in this year’s competition in the Regional Sports Complex. Led by inspirational captain, Deborah Farrell, they topped their group with a draw against Mercy Primary and a big win over Grange NS. This put them into the final against St. John’s NS, Ballisodare. Despite the girls' best efforts, they went down 3-1 in a very tight decider and the winners will now go on to represent Sligo in the Connacht Finals. Our girls were presented with their medals by members of the Sligo Rovers Football Team led by midfielder and FAIS Co-ordinator, John Russell.
Sligo Triathlon club's annual Club Try a Tri is taking place on April 6th so spread the word. It is open as usual for adults and juniors who are newcomers to the sport. As these are super sprint distances, we also want to encourage individuals who have participated in a limited number of triathlons to also participate in this event especially as it is a good means of training for the season ahead. So this event is not just limited to 'newbies'!
This year we really want to encourage juniors aged between 10-18 years to participate and be exposed to this growing sport. If students aren’t prepared to participate individually, it is hoped that they will be encouraged to take part in a relay team. We will have 2 separate race events a Children’s Event and a Junior and Adults Event.
The age categories for the Children's Event are as follows:
10 -11 Years
12 -13 Years
14 -15 Years
The distances will be: 200m swim, 4km cycle, 2 km run
All activity will take place as usual at the Sports Complex.
All info is contained below and race entry is through Triathlon Ireland. https://www.triathlonireland-newserver.com/local-races.html
As this is pool based Tri, numbers are limited and places will be filled on a first come first served basis. Don't leave entering until the last minute as places are liked to be snapped up quickly. You have been warned!
We are also hosting a FREE Junior coaching day on Sunday March 2nd at Sligo Sports Complex as an introduction to the sport of triathlon. To all interested juniors, please email the following email address in order to register and obtain further details: firstname.lastname@example.org.
