U18 competition opportunities for national selection


Key competition opportunities for U18* athletes who compete in the hurdles and throws and are looking to gain selection to the Commonwealth Youth Games in 2017 are now available; click here to download a list.

We would encourage athletes looking to gain selection to a national team to enter one or more of these competitions. In addition there is a hurdles event in Scotland this weekend.**

England Athletics Commonwealth Youth Games Team staff will be present at most of these events to meet with athletes, coaches and parents.

*The U18 age group is limited to athletes born in 2000 or 2001.

England Athletics' Commonwealth Youth Games England Team Leader Scott Grace commented, "I am very pleased that England Athletics have worked with several partners to jointly organise a series of U18 competitions in 2017. These events will provide a unique opportunity for anyone seeking selection for the Commonwealth Youth Games. We hope that athletes and their coaches use these unique events to help in both their preparation for this major championship and for their long-term development."

Further events will be added at a later stage so please check back for the latest version of the competition schedule.
