Saturday 2nd July 2022 – Welsh Schools T & F Champs, Cardiff


The Welsh Schools Champs is an eagerly anticipated event in the competition calendar, providing athletes in school years 8 & 9 (Juniors), years 10 & 11 (Middle) and years 12 & 13 (Senior) the opportunity to compete at National level.

Following two qualification rounds, namely the Flintshire Schools Champs, followed by the North East Wales Schools Champs, many Deeside Athletes were successful and ventured to Cardiff to represent the North East Wales Team.

Here, further success for both Middle & Senior age groups can lead to International representation honours.
