In January 2013 the existing National Junior Athletic League and the National Young Athletics League amalgamated to form the UK Youth Development League for all athletes under 20 years of age.

The management of the new league was formed by existing committee members of the previous leagues.

Following the 2014 AGM Norma Blaine MBE, past Chairman, became the leagues first president with Grace Hall taking over as Chairman.

The dates for 2018 are:

Upper Age Group     -     29th April      27th May      1st July         29th July.


Lower Age Group     -     21st April     19th May       17th June      21st July

Check dates on League structure for LAG Scottish & Northern Ireland as there is a slight variation on the above.

17.03.2018. Important information.

Please note the change of venue for the YDL Midlands Division 1c N/E UAG on 29th April 2018

The venue is now Stourport Sports Club track.- Kingsway, Stourport on Severn DY13 8BQ.

The support from Kidderminster and Stourport AC is very much appreciated in securing the track booking.

28.02.2018. Permitting for YDL fixtures.

Please note that the licensing and permitting process has undergone a review and from 2018 onwards all YDL matches will be issued with a level 1 permit and not a level 2 as in previous years. This has implications for athletes looking for qualifying performances for selection for national representation.

Host clubs who feel that they can satisfy the level 2 criteria are able to apply independently for a level 2 licence.

Rule Change.

We have been notified that, as from 1 April, U13B will be using the 3kg Shot for competition and NOT 3.25kg.

LOWER AGE GROUP. Sale Harriers took the lower age group title by 3 points from Blackheath & Bromley where 7.5 points separated the top three teams. They have now won the lower age group title twice, 2014 and 2017. Congratulations to Sale.

The Norma Blaine MBE athlete of the match award was presented to Holly Mpassy of Blackheath & Bromley Harriers for her outstanding new league record in the U15 girls 300 metres, 40.15 seconds.

The Frank Starkie award was won by Hugh Morrow of Edinburgh AC with a 4:28.05 U15 boys 1500 metre win.

UPPER AGE GROUP.  Blackheath & Bromley Harriers, who like Sale, have now won the upper age group title twice, 2016 and 2017, took the title by an unprecedented 167 points, from Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers.  

However, they also did a fabulous double, never been seen before, winning both the gender splits. They now have the honour of both their male and female teams going to Europe in 2018 to represent the UK in the European Junior Champions Club Cup. Congratulations to everyone involved in this unique result.

The Norma Blaine MBE athlete of the match award was presented to Jay Morse, Cardiff AAC, for his U17 discus win of 52.57 metres.
