Image result for decisions madeHi there Juniors and parents of Juniors

Were you aware that we have a Junior Committee – who are working tirelessly on your behalf to improve all aspects of the club for the Junior athletes?

They meet  on a regular basis to discuss coaching sessions, the athletes progression paths, attendance at future events and many other topics.

If you have issues you would like them to discuss, or improvement suggestions to propose then by all means email them at any time

Juniors – renew your membership Online (by end of March)

Please note that the Online Membership system used successfully to renew our Senior athletes is now available for Junior athletes to also renew their membership.

Please go to the Junior page and follow the link to the Full On Sport system.

There is also a link there to a User Guide and a set of FAQ’s which we hope should answer any questions you have.

This system now replaces the filling out of the form and paying of cheques etc. You will need to cancel your existing standing order at the same time in order to avoid paying us twice….

If you have any problems then please do not hesitate to email me and let me know the kind of issue you might be having. Please also contact me if there if you have any other concerns around using the system.

Jane goes to the Worlds!

A huge big congratulations to BAC’s very own Jane Dakin who has been selected as a Field Judge at the World ParaAthletics Championships.

Jane said in response to her selection  “It’s official, I’ve been selected as a Field Judge at the World ParaAthletics Championships. Very excited as this is a massive step up from the European IPC in Swansea. Such an inspiring event to be involved with. Looking forward to being right where the action is and hopefully witnessing some new world records from the British Athletes, especially those from Wales.”

Well done Jane from all at Bridgend AC.
