Our last Saturday meet was completed in overcast conditions this morning.
It was great to see so many people enjoying the various events.
Don’t forget that we move to 5:30pm Friday next week!
Light may be an issue for the next few weeks so it is important that we get started on time.
See you at 5:30pm on Friday!
A cool southerly breeze greeted athletes at the Centre’s first point score meet this morning. However it soon gave way to some hot competition. Our athletes and volunteers are to be congratulated on another wonderful morning of Little Athletics. Don’t forget we are still taking registrations from 8:30am. Come and join the fun!
Today saw the third and final Orientation Day successfully completed.
Athletes and parents have now had the opportunity to experience all the events offered in the three (3) week rotating program. In doing so those that are new to the Centre have also become familiar with, not only the events, but the manner in which club meets are run.
Point score competition commences on Saturday so make sure you are there at 9:00am sharp so we can get away on time.
Don’t forget that the aim of the Centre’s point score is to encourage all athletes to improve their own personal best efforts. It does not award points for winning but for improving.
The second of the three Orientation Days saw even more athletes registering with the Centre. Mother Nature turned on a beautiful, sunny, Saturday morning and perfect conditions for athletics. A big thank you to all the wonderful volunteers that made the morning such an outstanding success!
Don’t forget that our third and final Orientation Day will be held next Saturday 30th September.
Registrations will continue to be taken from 8:30am.

Kiama Little Athletics’ 2016-2017 season came to a conclusion on Friday, March 31 with the annual presentation at Kiama Leisure Centre.
The Centre’s highest accolade is the Dean Blair Memorial Trophy which is presented to the athlete who attains the highest level of improvement throughout the season.
This year’s winner was Under 12 athlete Lachlan Poole. In second place was Angus Young (Under 6) and in third place was William Young (Under 9).
Dean Blair was a member of Kiama Little Athletics Centre in the 1980 season, joining at the age of nine. In just three months Dean broke 15 records, a testimony to his natural ability. Tragically Dean died in December 1980 as a result of a playground accident at school. The perpetual trophy was struck in Dean’s memory.
Under 13 athlete Georgia Richards was the recipient of the Coaches Most Improved Award.
The Centre’s annual general meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 5 at the Kiama Leagues Club commencing at 7.00pm. Please support the Centre and come to the AGM.
Congratulations to the eight (8) athletes who represented the Centre with distinction at the State Track and Field Championships on the weekend. There were some personal best times, heights and distances set, but just reaching this level of competition was a great achievement.
Full results from the State Track and Field Championships are available here.
Don’t forget that our annual Presentation Day will be held from 5:00pm on Friday 31st March at Kiama Leisure Centre.
A reminder that athletes must have attended a minimum of 50% of competition mornings and/or evenings from their date of registration to be eligible for end of season awards. “Orientation Days” are included in this calculation.

The Centre needs new Committee members to ensure it remains viable and to ultimately guarantee Little Athletics will continue in Kiama come September. The AGM commences at 7:00pm on Wednesday 5th April at Kiama Leagues Club. Please come and join us.
