an athletics club situated in Belfast

Opportunity to give something back to the club…?

With ever-increasing numbers of new enquiries from young athletes wishing to join our club, our coaches are under pressure and unfortunately having to turn some away.  We would appeal to anyone involved with the club to consider helping out in a coaching capacity. Whether you are a qualified coach already, current or past member, parent (or grandparent/other relative!) of an athlete, or a friend of the club, please get in touch if you feel there is any way you could assist, particularly with our junior members.  While this is ultimately a time commitment, it is a very rewarding one, as any present coach will vouch for!  The club will, of course, pay for any coaching courses undertaken for this purpose.

This is your opportunity to give something back!

Amended Results of firmus Super 5, Meet 5, Thurs 28th Aug 2014

Amended Copy of FIRMUS SUPER FIVE 2014 (Five)

Amended results, however we are aware there still seems to be an issue with the results of the mini girls 600m. Apologies, we are trying to correct this!600m MG Corrected Meet5 Aug28

Apologies for the delay – see updated result of mini girls 600m from our last Super 5 meet on 28th August! There was an issue with the results printed where the first page was missing. Only possible query now is with position no. 6, where the number recorded was actually a mini boys, but we think it was mistaken and that 51 may be correct. Please comment if not!
