The regional events took place in Dungloe, Letterkenny, Inishowen, Donegal Town and Stranorlar. The best schools on the day were selected to progress to the finals.We would encourage parents, friends, coaches and anyone interested in seeing what Sports Hall Athletics is all about to come along to the county finals and experience a fun, exciting and competitive days sport.Myles Sweeney from Donegal Sports Partnership is part of the team responsible for the delivery of the sports hall athletics programme around the county, helping children progress, develop – and hopefully reach a standard at which they wish to compete.“Sports Hall athletics is a key part of the sports programme in our local schools,” explains Myles. “With the support of The Schools, Athletics Ireland, local athletics clubs and coaches, we’re able to deliver a consistent level of teaching and expertise across the county – and help schools work together to enter local and national competitions.It also means that the schools have access to the very best coaches, as each member of the coaching team has varying skills and specialties. The children really enjoy the lessons, and we encourage variety and an outward focus which they wouldn’t necessarily receive otherwise.”Schools will be arriving at the venue from 9:30 for a 10am start. Entry is free.Donegal Sports Partnership would like to thank all the schools, teachers, coaches and clubs who were involved in the delivery of the programme and hope that they can build on the success of this year and make this a regular part of the school sports calendar. DONEGAL SCHOOLS SET TO COMPETE FOR SPORTS HALL ATHLETICS GLORY was last modified: February 22nd, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DONEGAL SPORTS PARTNERSHIPSPorts Hall Athletics Regional Finalslast_img
