Lydl Match 1 4X300 Relay Squad 2019 3

This is the highest level of competition in which the Junior part of the club competes.

The YDL is made up of two different competitions:

  • The Lower Age Group (LAG) which is U13 and U15 athletes, so Years 6, 7, 8 and 9
  • The Upper Age Group (UAG) which is U17 and U20, so years 10, 11 and U20 athletes

The lower age group competitions take place on Saturdays. It is a series of 4 competitions across the South of England. You can think of the YDL as similar to a football league with promotion or relegation from the league available at the end of the season!

It covers the following athletic disciplines:

  • SPRINTS – 75m/150m, 100m, 200m, 300m, plus hurdles and relay races
  • MIDDLE DISTANCE – 800m, 1200m/1500m
  • JUMPS – Long Jump, High Jump, Pole Vault
  • THROWS – Hammer, Discus, Shot, Javelin

WADAC can select a maximum of two athletes per event, as an A and B string and these will be the strongest available athletes in these events in the club. This is done in collaboration with the club coaches. There are limited non-scoring events in the Lower YDL for the 100m and 800m only.

If there are any event gaps that need to be filled these are offered to any athlete attending on the day. That way we get maximum points to secure the highest place in the League.

We sometimes take a coach (as in a bus!) from Winchester for these events.

For more information about the YDL please see the website - this is where the results are posted a few days after each event.
