The Alder Valley League is split between boys and girls with competition for each gender on different days.
There is scoring competition for the U13, U15 and U17 age groups with each club permitted to field two scorers (“A”and “B”) per event.
The Alder Valley is a ‘development’ league which means it allows unlimited athletes to compete as ‘non-scorers.’
This offers all club athletes the perfect opportunity to gain track and field experience or set a time or distance.
The league is made up of 9 clubs who compete over 3 fixtures with a 4th event – called the finals weekend – with the top sides competing in the cup final, the bottom ones playing off in the plate competition.
In addition to the older age groups, there are a range of non-scoring events for under 11s: 75m, 150m, 600m, 1000m, long jump and shot putt.
Teams have to be submitted prior to each fixture, so team mangers usually mail all athletes a week or two beforehand to arrange the teams. If you wish to be included in these messages please ensure you contact the appropriate team manager to be added to their distribution list.
