Week 11 Update

Dear Members,

 

Welcome to Week 11 and Program 1 of the SELAC Season.

 

As communicated earlier the U9-U12 qualifying meet for State Championships has been set. Hopefully we will have some information on the qualifying criteria for our Senior athletes soon. The SELAC committee will be coordinating entries for the February meet due by the end of December.

 

A few important messages for this week:

  1. It will be hot this Saturday so please ensure your children are well hydrated, have a hat and sunscreen.
  2. The Club needs to borrow a trailer to move a few high jump pallets so if anyone has one available can you please see Karen Mitchell on Saturday.
  3. Javelin coaching: Jane Flemming will be available for javelin coaching. At 8-8.30am the coaching will be specific for parents ONLY. We would like parent representatives from all age groups from u7s up to attend this session to learn the basics of javelin to pass on to their groups respectively. The U11s will have their sessions after the parents.

 

BBQ - The U9 parents are on BBQ/Canteen duty. York can you please make sure this is communicated to your group, this week, as parents are not showing up to the Canteen and Trish and a couple of other regular volunteers, need help.

 

Short Hurdles: U13+ parents will be required on the front straight for the duration of the Hurdles event
 

Centre Records – GIRLS U17 SHOT PUT ANNABEL PENNY: 11.56m

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. We are also continuing the weekly challenge on centre records. Please note: Centre records will need to be signed off by selected individuals before being recorded as a centre record.

 

3.      Encourage team contribution our yearly team award.

 

Volunteers:

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

The success of our Club is highly dependent on volunteers. If you staying at the track we will be limited to 500 attendees during the 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, as well as the 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 U8 teams to stay at the Hurdles.

 

Program 1 for this week will consist of:

Hurdles, 70m, 200m, walks and 800m races (not graded), Boys Javelin, Shot Put, Discus, Long, Jump and High Jump

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

7:50am: Briefing

8:00am: Start of program for U6-U17

9:00am: Start of program for TOTS

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.

 

Uniforms

Singlet tops are $25, crop tops are $35 and are available to purchase with cash only at the canteen.  Please remember to social distance when in that area.

 

Training

TBC once the season is under way

 

Upcoming events:

 

10th of October: Start of Centre Championships registrations

 

31 October and 7 November: Club Championships (all U7s and over athletes are eligible)

Thank you to all committee members and age marshals for your contribution during the off-season to ensure we kick off the season successfully.

 

Wet weather updates will be posted on our Facebook page first then on our website.  Athletics is on, until called off.  The call to cancel athletics is usually done after the Committee inspect the grounds Saturday morning. ES Marks is an all weather track

 

Looking forward to seeing you all this Saturday

The SELAC Committee


State Relays Cancelled for 2020


Presentation Day

Hello all South Eastern athletes,

 

Last weekend we would have held our presentation day and this would have been the culmination of a exceptionally great season for the club. 

Without going into every accolade, there has been improvements across the club at all levels from Tots to the senior athletes. This is an amazing achievement and when you read the below information  you will agree that we have grown from strength to strength this year and will only continue to grow in coming years.

 

One note on our current situation is to remember that resilience helps us greatly in tough times and you, as athletes develop resilience through training, ‘success’ and ‘perceived failure’ and competition so we hope you are all holding up well at home, albeit probably driving your parents a little ‘crazy’!

 

Before announcing the performance achievements for this season, it's important to recognise that the reason we have been so successful....

 

Is because of you. The athletes. 

Without you none of this would have happened.

You have put in the time at training;

You have put in the time at competing; and

You have put in the time at being your best always, which is what we hope to achieve and is the motto of our club.

 

It has been an outstanding year on a number of fronts including:

  • The number of returning athletes to the club;
  • The number of new athletes to the club;
  • The number of people participating in the club championships;
  • The number of Representatives at zone (180);
  • As a club we finished second at zone behind Balmain which is a much larger club many times our size;
  • The number of Representatives that went to regional (130); and
  • The number of Representatives who were selected go to state - 47 this year that is more than any other year for this club.

 

The most significant achievement that all athletes have achieved this year is the outstanding number of personal bests amongst all age groups and in all different events. 4572 personal bests!

 

It is so rewarding to see the number of athletes with PBS in our graded 800 and 1500 metre races. 

It was well over 75% PB's achieved each time we ran those races.  These races are of importance as they match kids of similar ability in races where they wouldn't normally get to ‘compete’ and allow athletes to push themselves against peers at the same level and the results can be seen clearly by the amount of PB's which were achieved. 

 

Now without wasting any more time we will move on to the awards. 

 

The first award is that of our Club Captains. This year we held a nomination style process for the Club Captains positions,  which was very competitive and tight but our club captains for the upcoming 2020/2021 season will be:

 

Josh Ralph

Isabella Palm

 

Congratulations to both, Josh and Isabella, on being selected amongst the club and we all look forward to working with you both soon, as you represent our athletes.

 

The next significant award is the team of the year. There were several teams that were very close on points and in the end it came down to 0.2 of a percent between the first and second. So the team of the year is:

 

1st Place Team of the Year: Under 7 Boys with 30.2%

2nd Place Team of the Year: Under 8 Girls with 30.0%

3rd Place Team of the Year: Under 8 Boys with 28.2%

 

Well done to the Team of the Year. 

 

The next award is the Peter Thomas Club Person of the Year. There are many factors that go into making up who can be selected for this award and there was a huge amount of athlete who were put forward to be considered for the Peter Thomas Award. The Award goes to:

 

Jet Powell 

 

Congratulations and well done.

 

The next award is the Volunteer of the Year. Without volunteers this club would not survive and they are the backbone of everything we do, we thank them every Saturday and we appreciate the effort and time they all put in. The volunteers of the year are:

 

Bruce Cleaver

Roy Newans

Peter McKillop

Mat Davoren 

 

Congratulations to all those volunteers who made our season so successful. We look forward to seeing you next year back at the track and help make 2020 - 2021 season better and bigger. 

 

Please note we were unable to award the Athlete of the Year as this award is specifically based on results at the State Championships which was cancelled.  

 

Below is a list by age group of all the awards. You should all be proud of your ongoing and continued success in athletics. Well done all.

Zone Results

Hey team, 

 

Please see the GREAT result from the zone carnival from last weekend:

 

The Point Score is as follows:

 

1st  Balmain  4,004 points

2nd South Eastern  2,600 points

3rd Eastern Suburbs 2,009 points

4th Canterbury  1453 points

5th Randwick Botany 1,182 points

6th  Inner West  1,093 points

7th Tiger Wests  263 points

 

I think it's important to remember that Balmain has almost 900 kids. It's a great result that we're in front of Eastern Suburbs, Canterbury and Randwick Botany. Congratulations to all the athletes who have made it through to region and please remind those other athletes that there are still spots up for grabs after the carnival this weekend held at Met South.

 

Regions (like ours) with two zones will have six automatic places progress through to their respective regions.  So 1st to 6th placegetters have already qualified (except U7 who do not progress to Region). Then a maximum of four next best qualifiers from each region will also be taken through to the respective regions. Making a total of up to 16 athletes in each event at each region.

 

The team for the Regional Carnival will be advised shortly.

 

The results for the Zone Carnival are here.
