Welcome back!

Hopefully everyone has recovered from the traditional Christmas/New Year festivities and is ready to get back in to the second half of the 2018/19 Little Athletics season.

This Saturday (12th January) sees us pick up on Program 1.

On behalf of the South Barwon LAC committee I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

GENERAL UPDATE 23.10.18

A great start to the season from all involved. Not the best March Past weather we have had in recent years but still terrific to see so many turn up and get into the spirit of things. Perhaps a little too wet and cold. Nonetheless for those that stayed on we still managed to get through all events. Well done GLAC. I have herad of so many sporting events being cancelled on Saturday and so many disappointed children (and parents).

South Barwon Duties

So with slightly reduced participant numbers this year comes a slightly reduced requirement to look after events.

We have:

  • Long Jump 1 and 2
  • Back Straight timing
  • 400m manual timing
  • On Tracker Minders x2
  • Walking Judge (Program 2)
  • Starter

Generally the expectation is for every family to volunteer on 3 occasions. We have some who do so every week or every second week. We definitely wont stop you if you can do more. This year we seem to have quite a few families that are unable to volunteer. We do ask that these families make an effort to at least put their hands up for 2 duties for the year.  OTHERWISE IT LOOKS LIKE WE WILL NEED TO CALL ON FAMILIES FOR FOUR OR FIVE DUTIES FOR THE SEASON.

The CHIEF Program for 2018/2019 looks well and truly sorted

A huge thanks to Nat, Anne, Kieron. Janelle, Tim. Drewy, Gus, Michelle, Jo and Luke

Special Mention – Rohan Whelan for looking after Back Straight timing fo the year

 

Please note: any queries, cancellations, offers for duties please contact John Sprunt

The 2018-19 Track and Field season commenced on Saturday 6th October and finishes with the Steigen Geelong Championship Day on Saturday 9th March.

The last round of competition before Christmas will be Saturday 8th December (LAVic State Relays will be on Saturday 15th December). Competition at the Geelong Centre will re-start on Saturday 12th January 2019.
