Sportshall Athletics

Sportshall Athletics is a modified form of Track and Field Athletics suited for athletes up to the Under-15 age group (ages as at 31st August/1st September 2017 for the 2017-8 season events), to enable them to compete over the winter without the 'delights' of cold, wind, rain, snow etc. There is a similar "Fun in Athletics" format for Under-11's.

Avon teams have had great success at Regional and UK levels over the past few seasons, especially the Under-13 Boys, who were UK Champions in 2014 and 2015. In 2017, three of the four Avon teams qualified from the South-West Championships for the UK Finals; they finished 2nd (U13 Boys), 6th (U13 Girls) and 4th (U15 Boys); the Devon team which kept the U15 Girls out of the finals finished 4th.
