WELCOME & GENERAL INFORMATION
Welcome to the Balmoral Little Athletics (LA) Club website. We are a well-established Brisbane athletics club for 5 - 17 year olds. Our club is located on the Stanley Rd entrance to the Clem Jones complex in Carina (see map below right).
Little Athletics promotes that it is important to "Be your Best"®. The emphasis is on fun, participation, performance, technique and getting involved with your family in physical and healthy activity. Little Athletics recognises that children vary widely in shape, size and athletic ability, and is thus one of few sports that successfully caters for them all. Each year across Australia, approximately 95,000 boys and girls enjoy the activities that Little Athletics has to offer.
The events are set accordingly to age groups. Some examples of the events are:- Sprints & Hurdles, middle and long distance running, walks, long jump, triple jump, high jump, discus, shot put, javelin and hurdles.
Athletics Coaching and training
As well as offering guidance to young athletes on club nights, coaching sessions will commence on September 10th. Coaching is available during the season on Tuesdays nights prior to competition nights from 5:30 - 6:30pm. Coaching sessions will cover a variety of events including sprints, jumps, throws and middle distance. All sessions are conducted by qualified Track & Field coaches. There is no additional charge to attend training sessions for fully registered athletes.
On Wednesday 2nd October 2013 we will be holding a mutli-discipline coaching clinic for U9's and older athletes. The clinic is open to members and registration is required so that a suitable number of coaches are in attendance. We would expect that each athlete should be able to receive training in at least 3 events / disciplines during the morning. A drink and piece of fruit will be provided.
Please see the attached flyer and register as soon as possible.
Non-members may also register and use the day as a come and try day.
