COVID-19 Impact on End of Season

Little Athletics Australia has advised that the conduct of all organised Little Athletics activities should be suspended immediately, until at least 20 April 2020. The Australian government has also banned all indoor gatherings of more than 100 people.

Considering these developments, and in the best interests of community health, we must unfortunately:

– Cancel our competition evening (Friday 20th March) which was to be the last meet of the season;

– Defer and/or restructure our Awards Presentation event (which was scheduled for Saturday 28 March).

We will advise revised arrangements for Awards Presentation once the situation becomes clearer.

Reminder:  There is NO further Wednesday.   Our coaching program for the season is complete.

While ground conditions prevented our meet going ahead last Friday, we were pleased to celebrate with our Team who have qualified for the State Track & Field Championships, to be held this weekend at SOPAC.  Many thanks to Mayor Kevin Greene who assisted in presenting a gift to each member of the State Team and provided a few words of support.

Wednesday coaching this week is:   Discus (u6 – u10) and Long Jump (u11 – u17).

This Friday will be the Week B program (includes 200m and Hurdles).

Upcoming Events:

Congratulations to the many St George athletes who have competed so well in the Zone and Regional championships.   We anticipate somewhere from 16 – 18 St George athletes will qualify for the LANSW State Track & Field Championships.  More information here.

Week 16 – Friday 7 February

UPDATE:   Due to the (much needed) rain, Athletics is cancelled for this evening 7 February.

Congratulations to the many St George athletes who competed in the Regional Championships this past weekend under very trying conditions with hot weather during much of the carnival and rain at the very end!  Hats off to the carnival organisers who simultaneously took care of athlete well-being and managed to get the carnival completed on Sunday, even if the lights did need to be turned on!

This Friday should be our Week B (Hurdles) program.  Fingers crossed the forecast rain at the end of this week falls sometime other than on Friday!

Wednesday coaching this week will be Shot Put (u6 – u10) and Long/Triple Jump (u11 – u17).
