    Would that be appropriate or is it too far back?
    It does relate to my course

    It depends on what it was and how you are going to use it. Check with a teacher.

    You can but yeah seeing how old that is, I wouldn't either, as it doesn't really give unis an idea of what you are like right now. However, you could word your sentences in a way to include it e.g. I have been involved in (whatever course you're applying to)-related activities since the age of 10 or something like that.
