5 From School PE lesson to International Athlete There are approximately 60 secondary schools or colleges in the county. We communicate with ALL by: 2 copies of SSAA Handbook Area Secretaries SSAA Secretary Championship Organisers SSAA Team Managers

6 Schools, therefore, know about our activities. But our activities are also posted on the SSAA website for ALL to see : Students Parents Coaches Teachers We also have a very good relationship with the Athletic Clubs within the County. They too are informed of our activities so they can inform their Athletes

7 By taking part today YOU are now part of the Association. Keep asking your teachers for information about : Cross-Country Track & Field Combined Events Because the first step on the ladder is to be entered by your school into an Area Championships. Having had their championship the area selects a team to compete at the County Championships – that’s when you start to meet us.
