Week 5 Update

Dear Members,

Welcome to week 5 of the Little Athletics season at SELAC. Hopefully we will begin to see some warm and dry weather this week.

Over the following few weeks we will be continuing registrations for our Club Championships and we are gearing up for the State Relays so this is a great time to start focusing on your techniques and improve on your times and distances!

1. Volunteers:

The success of our Club is highly dependent on volunteers. Thank you to those who came early and helped last week with the set up and running of the program. Also thank you to those who have put their hand up as Age Marshalls. You will find this role to be fun and very rewarding. This year, each age group will also need to provide a minimum of 3-4 volunteers to assist at the Club's canteen on a rotational basis. This week it's the U8 Boys and Girls group. The allocation of age groups for the Canteen (within our Season’s calendar) will be placed on the notice board, at the desk, from this week, as well as our Website southeasternlac.org.au and our Facebook page facebook.com/SouthEasternLACSELAC.

Welcome to the New Season

Dear Members,

 

Welcome to the start of the Little Athletics season at SELAC. This year is our 32nd season of competition. We hope you enjoy your time with us on a Saturday morning for the next few months. For those of us who are returning to the Club, please make our new members feel welcome. Please save our Club Calendar for the Season’s program

 

All our communication will be conducted via our SELAC website  AND our Facebook page (especially all urgent matters such as wet weather and training changes).

 

Our Club's focus this season continues to be:

1.     Create a fun and safe environment for our Little Athletes to learn the disciplines of athletics

 

2.   Support our Little Athletes in individual improvements for all the events within their age groups, via personal bests (PB's). We are also continuing the weekly challenge on personal bests. Please note: Centre records will need to be signed off by selected individuals before being recorded as a centre record.

 

3.      Encourage team contribution via (a) participation in the State Relay championships and the Zone Championships and (b) our annual team award.

 

Volunteers:

There is no heart stronger than the heart of a volunteer.

The success of our Club is highly dependent on volunteers. You are requested to stay at the track during the Saturday program and help out wherever you can. This year, each age group will also need to provide a minimum of 3 volunteers to assist at the Club's canteen on a rotational basis. This week it's the U12 group. The allocation of age groups for the Canteen will be placed on the notice board from next week and will also appear on our website.

 

We have also decided that a specific age group will need to remain at the Hurdles until the completion of this event during Program 1 to assist in the setting up and modification of the short hurdles for ALL age groups. Anne Saville and Karen Mitchell will be on hand with heights and distances. This week it’s the parents of the U8s girls and boys teams to stay at the Hurdles.

 

Program 1 for this week will consist of:

Hurdles, 70m, 200m and 800m races (not graded)

7:30am: Set up equipment and warm up by EVERYONE

7:50am: Briefing

8:00am: Start of program

10:30-11:00am: Finish

 

Age marshals will be your first point of contact for the Club. It is expected that all parents help them to deliver the program starting with the set-up of equipment at 7:30am.
