Level 2 permits in the Celtic Home Countries are
undertaken by those Home Countries.
An athlete should be allowed to change his First
claim club once every year with only a minimal

distance for U15 Boys in the 2012 KYAL

Having looked at this site (run by Peter Matthews)
it will do everything Po10 does plus it has some
excellent new features including a 'League section'.
The Power of 10

drive to achieve greater strength in depth of every single event in
all age groups and every part of this nation. 23-11-10
