It is with a view to highlighting the fruit of the hard work of the young athletes of the ASCSM and to maintain and revitalize athletics on the territory that this meeting is organized.
"Despite a track that has remained of good quality, training conditions remain difficult for the ASCSM as well as for the other clubs due to inappropriate attendance at the stadium during training hours for walkers, bicycles and sometimes scooters. », points out a member of the ASCSM.
With this 17nd meeting, the ASCSM wishes to involve young people even more in athletics, by reconnecting with the high level. The young people of Saint-Martin have talent, they are just waiting to express it and benefit from the conditions to show it. See you Saturday at the Albéric Richards stadium!_AF
