Suddenly the winter is over and the summer track season is upon us and all those days of training in the cold and wet should see their reward.

On Saturday 18th April, the UK YDL team (under 17/20) travels to Yate and will hope to get the season's campaign off to a strong start. If you have not yet let your team manager know of your availability, please do it now.

Only two athletes can take part in each event in the UK YDL so the following week's open Welsh League meeting in Cardiff (Sunday 26th April) is the place for those athletes not in the team. There is no limit on the numbers of athletes who can enter the Welsh League competitions and all Cardiff athletes are encouraged to turn out on their home track.

Stadium changes Tuesday 17 March 2015

CISS

On Thursday next, 19th March, Cardiff Council will decide whether to transfer the management of Cardiff International Sports Stadium to Cardiff and Vale College.

This will obviously affect the club as well as Welsh athletics and club officials have met the college to better understand what changes may be made.

The plans are ambitious but within them we have been assured that the function of the stadium as Wales' national athletic stadium will continue and hopefully even be enhanced.
