Site amended 19 December 2014

 


KCAA had the chance to congratulate 3 of its members at this year’s AGM with presentations by its chairman / EA South East Regional Council member David Ralph of 3 awards.  First there were 2 EA SE Regional awards:
Jan Duffin (Paddock wood AC & Secretary of the KCAA Sportshall Committee secretary) who received an award recognising her lifelong contribution to athletics as a volunteer.
Ashford Leisure Trust (ALT) (management group of the Julie Rose stadium) who provide a multitude of athletic services to us & others in Kent who won the Partnership Award for the second year running. Peter Le Rossignol (Development Manager, Ashford AC member & Coach) accepted the award on behalf of ALT.
Secondly Mick Paul (KCAA Treasurer, KCAA Female Team Selector & Cambridge Harriers member) who received the SEAA 40 years services to athletics certificate – which will take some beating. This follows on from him being award the Civic Recognition of Voluntary Service by Adults in 2014 by Bexley Council in April by the Mayor, which both truly recognise his lifelong contribution to athletics.

New UKA Rules agreed - The UKA Executive Board has approved the following Rule amendments for 2012-2014 (Effective from 1st April 2012)

Track & Field Permitting: Permitting all Track & Field fixtures-Level 2 (County level) to Level 5 (international level) by UKA to be introduced with the exception that Level 2 permits in the Celtic Home Countries are undertaken by those Home Countries.

Eligibility-Club Transfers: An athlete should be allowed to change his First claim club once every year with only a minimal administrative period between with no further penalty (currently four months) since so few Eligibility committees are giving anything more than one month at the present time. Athletes changing more than once a year will be subject to the current rule of four months.

False Start Rule: The current international false start rule of DQ at the first failure has been applied to Seniors from 2010. It is decided that this rule will now include the U20 and U17 Age Groups with effect from 1st April 2013.

U15 Boys and 400m v 300m rule proposal: It is agreed that U15 boys will run 300m in Championship events and U15 National League. Other competition providers can use their discretion and include a 400m for Under 15 boys within their programmes if they so wish. NB: KCAA Track & Field committee have agreed to adopt this new distance for U15 Boys in the 2012 KYAL

Other proposals did not get accepted. 12-02-12
