After a strong 2012, Yass Little Athletics go started for the first time this year on Tuesday evening.
Numbers were low but often parents forget that we start straight away once school has commenced.
Our athletes were combined into one big group to brush up on their skills, with some shot-put, long jump and some 100 metre races.
While the numbers were down a bit, the enthusiasm and energy was high, with some personal best records being absolutely smashed.
One athlete threw the shot-put almost 50 per cent further than his best from last year.
A new proposal was discussed with the families present; to see if inviting some VIP guest coaches to give some specialised instructions in particular events would be a worthwhile idea.
The parents were very interested in proceeding with this and so we will be organising some special coaching events as soon as coaches are available.
We will also be opening this up to non-members and all the local schools. More information will be added to our website, www.ylac.org.au, as details are finalised.
Don’t forget we will be back at Victoria Park from 5pm every Tuesday until April. See you there!
