Welcome to the New Season

Dear Members,


Welcome to the start of the 2018/19 Little Athletics season, at SELAC. 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.


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).


A weekly email, such as this one, will be sent out for regular communication. Please take time to read this one (probably the longest one you will receive) as there’s plenty of information regarding upcoming events.


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 via (a) participation in the State Relay championships and the Zone Championships and (b) our yearly team award.



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, as well as the calendar (insert SELAC Calendar link)


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, 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

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.
