As a club we are committed to providing a weekly athletics program that is both enjoyable and well organised. To do this successfully we need your help with the following activities:
- Setting up and packing away equipment
- Place judging for track events
- Age management
- Assisting age manager with field events
- Helping in the canteen
- Supervising your own children at all times
Competition is held on Friday nights, first call is at 5.15pm for 5.30 pm start. Mid-September to late March. Age groups cannot commence their weekly events until such time as they have an age manager. At all times you are responsible for the supervision of your children. Under no circumstances can your child be left at the ground unless you have pre-arranged for another parent to supervise them on your behalf. Children found to be unsupervised will not be able to compete until their parent is in attendance. Parents need to sign on each week to record who is supervising your child. One of the main purposes of Little Athletics is to have families enjoy doing activities together. We hope you and your family have fun at running, throwing, jumping and spending active time together.
PLEASE NOTE GROUND CLOSURE FOR AUGUST/SEPTEMBER
Our club was lucky enough to have a brand new irrigation system installed by council in April. It was planned that the field would then be topdressed following that. Due to unforeseen issues, council were unable to complete the works.
Council now plans to topdress (the entire oval) and re-turf much needed high traffic areas beginning August 17th. The field will need several weeks to establish. This work is essential to ensure the track is safe for our athletes and the general public for years to come.
Council have closed the oval for all activites until October 18th, our first club night. Fingers crossed that the grass grows quickly and we can get back to it asap!
The long jump pits will also have some maintenance completed during this downtime.
We do understand this is an inconvenience to some athletes leading up to school carnivals etc but the timing could not be avoided. This inconvenience will make your track much better long term. If you would like to chat about training options please get in touch with Crystal.
(For those new to the club, we normally start our season in September but have had to push our season back to allow these works to be completed)
