Congratulations to all the athletes who took part in the 3rd round of the Indoor Sportshall competition last Sunday in Witney. We had the best turn out of athletes so far this season and some super results.
Oxfordshire Sportshall League
League summary: Five competitions each year during the winter months for athletes in the U9 – U15 age groups. Athletes selected to represent Radley AC will be notified in due course by one of the team managers. Minimum age for competition in the league is 8 years on the day of competition.
The aim of the league is to introduce children into athletics and for them to enjoy the experience as much as possible. It is fun for the athletes! There are various running events that use the 'rebound board'. Other events (depending on the age group) include standing long jump and triple jump, vertical jump, javelin, chest push, shot put and speed bounce (jumping as many times as possible in an allotted time, over a small wedge with a two footed landing). There are also various relay races which include 4 x 1 lap, 4 x 2 lap, the paarlauf and obstacle race.
Many thanks and well done to all the athletes who competed last Sunday in the 4th indoor sports hall competition at the new venue in Wantage.
Particular congratulations go to the U11 girls who came 3rd overall on the day, and a special mention for U11 Heath Stillion who came joint 1st and rounded off his day by achieving a new hall record in the 1 lap.
The 5th and final indoor sports hall competition for this season is Sunday 10th March at Bicester Sports Centre. Emails re availability will be sent out nearer the time.
Thank you to all those athletes and parents who attended the third round Sportshall competition last Sunday in Witney.
It was a great afternoon of competition and it was really nice to see so many U15s and U13s taking part. Everyone put 100% into their events and the results prove it.
Congratulations to all athletes but especially the U11 girls team who came first in the obstacle race and in their 4 x 1 lap relay - with text book change overs. Well done.

The number of athletes across the teams were low because of half term but those who did turn out were very committed and determined. Thank you to all our athletes and their parents for their support.
Thank you to those who came to support the Club – we had a much bigger turn out for this event. Next competition (match 3) is Sunday 14th January in Witney.
