We take part in the Sussex Under13 and Under 15 Leagues during the summer months - three matches on weekday evenings in May, June and July and then a Sunday final in September. The Under 11's take part in evenings of competitions held at the track throughout the summer.
The Under 17's combine with the U20's to compete in the Youth Development Leagye (YDL). Eastbourne, Lewes, East Grinstead and Haywards Heath join together to form 'Team Sussex' competing in 4/5 matches against other teams in the south. This is a good opportunity to compete against athletes of the same age.
Athletes are also encouraged to compete in the Sussex County Championships and the Sussex Schools Championships. Our athletes are regularly selected to represent Sussex at inter county track and field or cross country matches and compete at the English Schools' Track and Field Championships. There are also plenty of opportunities to compete in "Open" meetings throughout Sussex and the South East.
During the winter there are indoor open meetings at Sutton and the indoor county championships are held at Sutton in March each year. There are also regular cross country events and opportunities to represent the county at Inter County and National Cross Country races.
With the coaching some Eastbourne athletes have received somem go on to represent the county at Inter-county and English schools competitions, both on the track, field and X-C.
Others add other competitions, attending the South of England and National events. In recent years some go on to represent England and Great Britain.
