Hi BLAC Families
Regional Championships were held on the weekend and in spite of the hot weather the Region set an amazing number of records (to be ratified). Balmoral were very successful and final results should be available in a day or so. A big congratulations to all those whom participated, and for those who qualified for State Championships the journey will continue. PLease click HERE for Balmoral results, please click HERE for all results, and please click HERE for qualifyng levels. U7 & U8 do not progress to State Championships. U9 to U17 have qualified by finishing in places 1 to 4 in a final or having reached a qualifying time or distance in a final (please double check for us as our nominations back to LAQ are due no later than 9:00am Monday 20th Febrary 2017 - please confirm ASAP to Leisa or Tony that you will be competing at the State Championships. To the many parents that helped out over the weekend on the track umpiring, placing & adjusting hurdles or simply helping take gear to and from the venue your efforts are much appreciated.
The count down is on to the end of another successful season of Little Athletics, but in saying that we are still running at a high capacity of athletes coming along to join in the fun at the club. The Coaching season this season has had record numbers attending, which has been fantastic to see! This season we have been lucky enough to have 5 x fully qualified coaches and 4 x trainee coaches helping our athletes learn new skills and reach their potential. I think this has been a strength for our club which we hope to continue next season.
With only 3 more training sessions left until the end of 2016-2017 season, please encourage your kids to come along and participating to the max! An amended coaching schedule till the end of season hase been loaded to the Training Page - hope to see you all there.J

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.
