Welcome to 2019/20 season, our 52nd as a competing centre at little athletics. I am looking forward to some exciting new changes and innovations to ensure all athletes can compete in a safe and family friendly environment.
Our centre inter club day will be held on Sunday 19th January at Newport against South Melbourne.
After trialing coaching on a Tuesday and Thursday evening during the 2018/19 season with little success we will now offer coaching on a Saturday morning for our U9 – Open athletes from 9- 10am. Our U7 – U8’s will receive their coaching while waiting to have their turn at particular events. This will assist with minimizing down time on a Saturday and ensure athletes are using the correct technique.
I would encourage all parents to ensure they register with Team App via their smart phones as this is the main source of communication to parents. Event cancellations, weekly competition updates, training and state and regional team information will be communicated via Team App. You will also need to download sign up genius as this is
where you will be required to select your 5 duties that you are required to undertake for your child/children to participate in club championship day. The link for sign up genius can be found at
On the following pages you will see that we have some gaps on the committee currently and moving into next season. With many of the current committee’s children finishing Little Athletics we will be looking to fill many positions at our next AGM. For the current season we are looking for a child safety officer, results manager, coaching coordinator,
secretary and general committee members. If you would like any further information on the responsibilities of these roles please contact myself or any of the other committee members.
I hope you all enjoy the season ahead, and we welcome feedback and comments via our website, I would encourage all parents to become involved as coaches, age group managers and getting to know other parents through the duty roster. Together we all can make the 2019/20 season successful and enjoyable for everyone.
