Juvenile Open Sports.
Well done to all of the athletes who competed at our recent open sports. A huge number of our underage athletes competed in sprints, distance races, throws and jumps at Moyne Open Sports on Saturday April 27th. It was a really enjoyable day for all involved and a great opportunity for athletes to compete before their county championships or to try out new events. There were some very impressive performances across all age groups – well done!
It was wonderful to see huge support from our neighbouring clubs and we really appreciate them making the trip to take part. As well as clubs from Tipperary, there were athletes representing clubs from a number of other counties and we were delighted to have these athletes travelling to compete in Moyne on the day. We hope they enjoyed the experience and that we’ll see them in Moyne again in the near future.
Thank you to all of the committee, volunteers, coaches, parents, spectators and athletes who made the day run so smoothly. We really appreciate your support.
