Wrexham Amateur Athletics Club - A New Generation
We would like to vastly improve the equipment available at Wrexham Amateur Athletics Club for our current members and visiting athletes, as well as the new athletes who we know visit our club each year. With this new equipment we know we can offer improved sporting chances to a new generation of athletes for many years to come.
- To ensure all equipment used by the athletes is safe to use and will not hamper their performance because of it's age or condition. E.g. High Jump uprights and bar are rusty, held with tape and the measuring markers have peeled off.
- To be able to measure throws on the field, accurately and swiftly through the purchase of an EDM device. We have some big throwers who both train and compete at the Queensway and this kit would enable us to measure more efficiently at competitions.
- To provide our track runners with a chance to train using starting blocks, as to date we have not been able to provide them with this opportunity, these would improve their performance both when training and competing.
How we will achieve our goals
As a voluntary run organisation we rely on fundraising and membership fees to cover day to day costs of the club. Unfortunately to be able to pay for this equipment ourselves in full wouldn’t be possible. This Community Award would allow the club to move forward and without this award we could not meet these objectives.
Where the money will go
We encourage young and mature athletes of all ages to engage with our sessions, whether they join us for exercise, fun or a chance to compete. This project will raise awareness of the club, it’s achievements to date and our goals for the future.
