Young Athletics League Meet @ Bracknell Leisure Centre.
As one of the largest community-orientated leisure centers in the South of England, Bracknell Leisure Centre is an excellent facility with olympic sized track and swimming pool among many other facilities. [http://www.bracknell-forest.gov.uk/leisure/leis-bracknell-sport-and-leisure-centre.htm]. It was on the track there that I was first saw a group of teenagers participating in a UK Youth Athletics League (YAL) athletics meet. There were young people of all ages taking part in various events from sprinting, hurdles and javelin to long jump. It was such an array of activity and took me back to my school days when I sprinted and took part in long jump. The YAL is an excellent way to encourage young people to stay out of trouble and cultivate their athletic talents.
