- Well done to our athletes (and Francine) who competed (and coached) at the School Games, amazing experience.
- Well done and continued good luck to all our athletes trialling for the various age groups and various franchise squads and for county.
- We encourage all athletes to be part of a pathway and to get additional training where they can eg Rhinos,for Hubs and for Minis. You will see some of our older performance athletes coaching/support coaching at these, so it is a good way to learn from a young age!

- At some point we will do our usual roll of honour in a few weeks time! It will be a long list I expect, as ever!
- Well done and good luck to those doing well in exams and those off to University! Keep in touch and play the off Netball Nights when you are back in Leeds!
- Well done to those progressing the umpiring course you took a few months ago!
Our Netball Nights squads continue to get great matchplay on a Wednesday, win or lose, excellent opportunity for younger athletes to play with older athletes!!
Well done to our players and parents who did the umpiring course, GoMammoth need umpires, so get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Polite reminder – please wear right kit for training. Black shorts/leggings (not undershorts for U14 and above) and any black top or a LANC blue top. Please only wear undershorts under a dress for U14 and above.
Thanks to all our coaches and volunteers, this is a busy time of year for the administration aspect, booking venues, sorting fees, affiliating players, checking fixtures, restocking kitbags etc etc!
Here’s to a superb season for Leeds Athletic! Good luck to everyone in matches next week. Our U12s had a great friendly vs Kingston today and some of our seniors are giving Shipley a game on Tuesday.
