The Welsh Schools track & field championships on 2nd July also act as the selection event for the British Schools U17 international which are being held in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Saturday 16th July.
Perhaps unique to athletics, and as very occasionally happened in the cross county this winter, pupils entered by PE teachers, can potentially progress all the way to a Welsh National vest without being affiliated to a club, academy, regional or national development program. In addition, school year 7 is not included in the formal schools championships pathway, however some school districts do hold year 7 events within their country trials or as stand alone events, please contact your PE teacher for details.
