Balmoral LA 2015 - 2016 Season - NEWS
News - Date Claimer - 16th April 2016 - BBQ PICNIC, AGM & Presentation of Trophies
Just 1 more week left in our Centre Season before State Titles - for those chasing the 100% attendance award the goal is within reach - don't slip now!
For those that have also signed up for their winter sports please come and finish out the season if possible - we understand the need to start team sports as soon as their training & season begins but please make that extra effort for these next weeks to finish our season off too!
A reminder for U13 or U15 athletes hoping to make the State Team - you must compete in minimum 60% Centre competitions. If you have queries please see one of the committee.
Parent levy also requires 60% assistance on competition nights so please make every effort to help and have the levy refunded to you.
Congratulations to all athletes that competed in the Regional Championships - you all put in a fantastic effort and gave us some great moments!. Parents that assisted on the track or getting gear to and from the venue thank you too - the help is very appreciated!. On a team performance though we can report 64 athletes competed and 29 achieved State Titles qualifiers not including those dynamo's from U7 & U8 that are not eligible - this would have provided even more. Really looking forward to these young stars coming through the ranks...
Athletics being an individual sport for the most part means you can join at any time. So if you have not already signed on it is never too late. Sign on is accepted all season long. Please follow the how to join instructions on the MORE INFO tab above. For returning athletes / families that are familiar with the process please click here to go directly to the online registration page.
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.
