Sun comes out for athletes

After torrential conditions last week, Little Athletics was back to normal on Tuesday, with beautiful weather and a normal program of events.

The athletes are already showing improvement in skills and confidence in all events. We are now able to build on these skills rather than focusing just on the basics.

It was wonderful to see the under-sixes and sevens doing some great throws in discus and shot-put. They now all step up to the line ready to throw and are excited to see improvement in how far they can throw. Some of the throws have been huge. There are signs of some athletes who will achieve great results in future regional events.

There have been some interesting battles on the running track between some of the faster runners, with notable improvement in times.

A good way for the athletes to improve further is to practice and exercise at home to build up their fitness level and strengthen their bodies.

Check out our website,, for upcoming events and some new photos.

Thanks again to all our wonderful parents and volunteers who make our club work.
