The decision was made during the 29th EAP Congress being held today in Tain l’Hermitage, in France.
This decision opens a new chapter for the club, and is part of the implementation of the club’s Sports Development Programme aimed at improving the standards of it’s athletes. The programme includes a number of initiatives, which include Talent Identification, Training Camps, Coaching Clinics, an Elite Athletes Support Scheme and presenting it’s athletes with more opportunities to compete in international athletics meetings both locally and abroad.
Becoming an EAP Member presents P.A.A.T. with the right and obligation to host an International Athletics Meeting, with the first one expected to be held on 4thMay 2019. It also presents club athletes with greater and cheaper opportunities to participate in athletics meetings abroad.
The 2019 meeting will be open to EAP Members and Non-EAP foreign athletes as well as to all local athletes, and will include an extensive events programme for both Senior and Youth athletes. The Malta meeting will definitely help athletes of Team Malta in their preparation for the 2019 G.S.S.E. and will be a stepping stone for up and coming athletes aspiring to make it to the 2023 G.S.S.E.
Who We Are
Pembroke Athleta Athletics & Triathlon forms part of a multi-discipline sports club based at Pembroke Athleta Sports Club in Tunis Road Pembroke and now with additional premises at the ex-parade grounds stadium near the Radisson Blu hotel and Pembroke gardens.
Training sessions at Pembroke, Marsa, and Imriehel. This is internationally known as the QUEEN of sport. Disciplines that make up athletics are the jumps, the throws, sprinting and endurance running events. All of us at some time in our life are drawn to these basic physical activities starting at and especially in childhood. The athletics section has girls and boys of all ages training with the club.
This sport discipline takes in swimming, cycling and running together. Our Pembroke Athleta tri-athletes train hard to achieve personal bests in all these disciplines. This endurance sport involves team events and relays as well as individual competition, both at short distance and the longer triathlon events. The Olympic triathlon and Iron man are the most popular.
Pembroke Athleta has a group of promising, experienced lady and men triathletes coming up. Most of them train with coaches specializing in triathlete events, giving particular attention to their performances.
Internationally qualified coaches guide them through their first experience in all the events and later help them to specialize in those events of their choice and aptitude.
