Reducing or eliminating the U15G events seems to have a lot of support.
Track and field is more problematic ...
1. In senior leagues ... Going for mixed competition would mean, say, the male side being demoted a few divisions and the female promoted. One would get poorer competition, the other could be out of their depth.
It would be better if the under 17's from the YAL were included with the National Junior League thus freein up timetable space for the under 13's and under 15's.
That might be OK for clubs that have NJL teams, but not good for the rest of us.
I see some merit instead in omiting U13s from the YAL to free up the timetable for non-s.

Great way to encourage participation!
Under 17's with juniors makes logical sense (to those who have proposed it previously) because it is better to have two age groups in one league so under 13's would go with under 15's then under 17's with juniors.
