Our last Saturday meet was completed in bright sunshine after a damp start this morning.

Orientation Day Completed

Kiama Little Athletics 2018-19 season commenced Saturday 22nd September on a beautiful Spring morning.

It was terrific to see so many new faces joining Little Athletics for the first time.  Saturday was our “Orientation Day” designed to give athletes and parents the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the various events.  It also gave the parent helpers a chance to learn how to measure, record and assist at events.

Point score competition commences next Saturday so make sure you are there at 9:00am sharp!

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.

It’s not too late to join in the fun and bring your kids along.  We will continue to take registrations during the season but ask that you arrive half an hour prior to the scheduled start time.

Please note that all registrations must be completed online this season.

If you are interested in joining us register online and visit Kiama Sports Complex around 8:30am on Saturday morning to complete the registration process.  Please ensure that you bring your printed invoice with you.  Uniforms can also be purchased at this time.

Kiama Little Athletics’ 2017-2018 season came to a conclusion on Friday, April 6 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 10 athlete Isabelle Hodgson.  In second place was Thomas Dal Bon (Under 6) and in third place was Joshua Kennedy (Under 11).

Coaches Most Improved winner Lily Bell and Coach Don Hodgekiss

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 9 athlete Lily Bell was the recipient of the Coaches Most Improved Award.

The Centre’s annual general meeting was held after the Presentation at Kiama Leagues Club.  All Executive positions were filled but the Centre still needs a Canteen Coordinator and more General Committee  members.

State Championships / Presentation

Congratulations to the thirteen (13) 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.

Don’t forget that our annual Presentation Day will be held from 5:00pm on Friday 6th April at Kiama Leisure Centre.  A reminder that athletes must have attended a minimum of 60% of competition mornings and/or evenings from their date of registration to be eligible for end of season awards.  Please note that “Orientation Days” are not included in this calculation.  Athlete attendance can be checked here.

We would like to take this opportunity to ask you to attend our AGM and consider becoming a member of our Committee for the 2018-2019 season.  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 6:30pm on Friday 6th April at Kiama Leagues Club.  Please come and join us.
