Susannah (middle) received a 10-year service award from Little Athletics. She has been part of Little Athletics since she was in U6. She was in U15 this season and commented that she’s been part of LA for two-thirds of her life!

My children are not high-performing athletes.  The reason why they did so well overall was because they turned up every week and did every single event scheduled that day. They gave every event their best effort and tried to improve on their previous performance. The Club awards points for participating and for improving. A lower-performing athlete who shows consistency in participation and improvement will score more points than a high-performing athlete who does not participate in as many events and/or does not improve on his/her Personal Best as often.

Jeremy, who is our oldest and too old to participate an athlete, has been helping out and for the next season, he will be the Equipment Manager for the Club.
