UKA Age Group Consultations

UKA is to adopt the IAAF rule book from April 1, 2016. Age group consultation concerns whether the adoption of the IAAF rule book should include changing UKA age groups from the current U20, U17, U15 and U13 categories to the IAAF’s U20, U18, U16 and U14 categories.

The impact the proposed age group changes would have on hurdles, steeplechase and throws specifications available to download in a proposed age group changes document here.

The consultation period for age group change proposals will end on May 29, 2015. The deadline for other rule change proposals is July 27, 2015.

Associations, regions, counties, districts, clubs and authorised competition providers are among those able to submit feedback on the proposed changes, but what are your thoughts? Club members can pass their view onto committee who will in turn pass them onto the county.
