UK Youth Development League
This league is an amalgamation of the National Junior League and the National Young Athletes League, and its fist matches were in 2013. This league operates over a weekend with the U13 & U15s on a Saturday and the U17 & U20s on the Sunday. There are four matches and a final annually.
Role of Team Managers
Team managers are listed below. Each Team Manager will ensure that athletes are aware of transport arrangements, timetables and the wearing of club colours. Each athlete must wear their Club vest to identify them (the Team Manager does have some spares but please do not rely on this) and each athlete has to wear bib numbers or letters which identify the Club.
These numbers or letters are issued by the Team Managers/Captains either before the meeting or on arrival at the meeting and are affixed to the athlete’s club vest using safety pins. Although the Team Managers have a supply of safety pins, some parents prefer to supply their own. The Club has a pergola and an AAC banner where the Team Managers will be based for the meetings. Please make sure that you check in with them when you arrive at the meetings if you have not travelled there on a coach provided by the club. Please also advise a team manager before you depart.
