OCTOBER 2015:

 

Please see below a message from the Committee:

We are aware that there have been rumours regarding the future of Sutton and District AC and wish to assure you that there are no plans to close the club down.

Over the last few years the membership of the club has increased and yet participation in leagues has fallen. The number of volunteers coaches and officials have dwindled and It has therefore become progressively more difficult to run the club and deliver support and services to our athletes.

As a consequence the Committee has made a decision that in order to maximise the potential of our athletes and offer the best by way of structure, coaching and competition we must put the club through a restructuring programme.

To this end the Committee are aiming for the proposals to be completed in November with a plan to hold an AGM to put these to the members by the end of December. We want to have these changes in place before the start of the 2016 summer track season so as not to be too disruptive.

We would like to take this opportunity to request for parents, friends, coaches, officials, volunteers and young people to come forward and give a little of your time to support the club and to provide a welcoming, structured and competitive environment for our athletes. If you can give some time please contact Mandy Walters, Club Secretary at: clubsecretarysutton@live.co.uk. We need team managers, officials,and coordinators. We need your help so that we can help your children!

We believe the changes will only serve to benefit the club and athletes and see it rise through the leagues in the future.

Sutton and District AC have enjoyed 30 years of athletics and want to continue to do so.

The Committee
