Who are we? Details about South Eastern LAC
South Eastern Little Athletics is a relatively small club that competes in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney.
Being a smaller club, we get through our events quicker, which means more events can be completed (8-10 every Saturday) and less waiting around for parents! There is a real positive and encouraging community feel to the club. Even though we are smaller, South Eastern has a proud reputation of producing great Athletes, and the results from last year were exceptional. Our club has produced National and State champions, and broken National and State records along the way. This year we aim to do even better than last year.
Our club however, is not solely focused on producing great athletes, and competition between athletes is not what it is all about. Little Athletics at South Eastern is about having fun, making friends and enjoying the competition. This year more than ever our focus will be on the athletes own achievements and emphasis on beating their own previous best.
It is important to our club that all athletes, whether they are national champions or kids just wanting to have fun, are encouraged in the same way. Even Olympic athletes, are proud of themselves for beating their previous best results, and our athletes should be no different.
Each week the athletes results are uploaded to this website. Results will contain the athlete’s personal best for the year for every event. At one glance, the athlete, the age marshal or the parents will be able to tell if the athlete has beaten their previous best, and everyone is encouraged to recognize the achievement.
Each year trophies are given to all athletes who complete more that 5 competition days and RSVP to their Age Marshal for the Presentation Day. Different trophies are also given to best athletes for each age division. First, second and third place are all given special recognition.
The competition for the trophies are based on the weekly centre competitions and each athlete is given a different point score depending on where they come in that particular competition, the athletes are awarded 8 points for first place, 7 points for second place, 6 for third, 5 for fourth, 4 for fifth, 3 for sixth, 2 for seventh and 1 for eight. There is an additional 1 point for everyone who competes and 1 point for a personal best.
This system awards people not only for winning or placing but also for competing regularly. Last year there were athletes who never placed in any running race that were awarded special trophies, so you don't have to be a talented athlete to win, you do however, need to compete as often as possible and in every event and try your very best.
Athlete of The Year
Each year South Eastern awards one athlete a trophy for his/ her outstanding results. The methodology for electing this athlete is based around the results at the state competition.
