    Star: Track Summer Camp With an Olympic Theme

    The ever popular Star Track Summer Camp is back again this year running from Monday 12th August to Friday 16th August from 10:00am to 1:00pm each day at the Meadowbank Sports Arena Running Track. Once again three age groups will be catered for: the mini minor group ages 5,6 and 7 years; the junior group ages 8,9 and 10 years; and the Senior Group age 11 to `15 years.

    Application forms are now available from Meadowbank Sports Arena, Greenvale Leisure Centre, Magherafelt Library, Magherafelt Tourist Office, Maghera Leisure Centre and of course the Athletic Club.


    Some tremendous sprinters have been discovered this past winter and to further increase our talent pool the Summer Camp is again offering a £60 voucher and an opportunity to join the Development Group of the Athletic Club to the Star Tracker who can equal or better the time of a previous Star Track Athlete, Michael Devlin, who won the UK Star Track Title in 2000 with a time of 7.75secs. How fast can you sprint? How much fun can you take? Are you up for the Challenge? If so come along to the Summer Camp this August.


    Star Track Summer Camp is still searching for a Multi Event Athlete. An athlete who can run, jump and throw.  Think of Jessica Ennis who won the seven event Heptathlon at the London Olympics and you would be on the right track. Are you up for this challenge?  If so enrol in the Star Track Summer Camp this August
