Retention of Area Championships

UK Athletics and England Athletics have decided to incorporate the Area (Midlands, Northern and South of England) Track & Field Senior Championships in the England Senior Championships for 2012, 2013 & 2014.  The SEAA were concerned that this decision
had not been reached democratically and so decided to canvas their affiliated clubs and senior athletes in its area.

Despite the time allowed the Association was overwhelmed with replies from concerned athletes, clubs, coaches and officials. 99% of which were in favour of retaining the Championships in its current form.

The Association has made an application to hold the South of England Athletic Association Track & Field U20/Senior Championships at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre on the 7th & 8th July 2012. A permit has been received from UK Athletics for the U20 Championship, but not for the Senior Championships.

In order to fulfil the wishes of our membership, the Association will now rigorously pursue its request for a full permit for the South of England Athletic Association Track & Field Senior Championships.
