ISAA Track & Field Season Cancelled for 2020
Irish Schools Athletic Association have been in extensive discussions with colleagues at the other SIAB Countries Schools Associations following the cancellation of last months’ SIAB Cross Country. It is our sad duty to report that the SIAB Track & Field which was due to be hosted by English Schools at Derby on July 18th has also fallen victim to the current restrictions, and has joined the list of cancelled events.
Further to this, it is likely that the hosting of these events will now roll over into 2021 – with next year’s SIAB Cross Country to be held at Falkirk, and the SIAB Track & Field at Derby. The ISAA Executive are now in a position to confirm the cancellation of all scheduled Track & Field Events at zone/district, provincial including the distinguished Irish Life Health ALL Ireland Schools Track & Field Championships fixed for Saturday, 30th May 2020 in Tullamore Harriers.
These decisions have not been taken lightly but reflect the concerns of all at ISAA and Athletics Ireland around the health and safety of pupils, teachers, parents and Officials. Everyone associated with Irish Schools Athletics in Ireland are asked to continue to follow the restrictions in place around travel and social contact for as long as it takes. PLEASE STAY SAFE!!
