CLUB JUNIORS; AN OFFER REALLY TOO GOOD TO REFUSE

44 Club Juniors have entered the Victorian State titles to be held at Lakeside on 12/13/14 February.

I am sure all at the club wish them an enjoyable experience and of course success. (a PB would be nice).

I am also sure that they would like support and encouragement.

Our club has been allocated a significant “Club Helper” requirement by Athletics Victoria and we are seeking assistance to cover this obligation.

It would be nice if parents/friends could provide the assistance as required and not only support their child but help the club out on this occasion. We especially would welcome offers from those who have yet to assist this season but of course greatly appreciate those parents always there to assist.

As yet, I don’t know what our allocated duties are likely to be, but our likely time requirements are:

Friday 12th Feb 2 helpers evening 5.00pm – 9.30pm

Saturday 13th Feb 3 helpers afternoon 2.00pm – 8.30pm

Sunday 14th Feb 3 helpers morning 9.00am – 1.00pm

Sessions can be shared so it would be terrific if we could get at least 3 for a 4-6 hour session (2 hours each).

If you can offer any help during these times PLEASE email me Phil on gohunter@tpg.com.au

I look forward to being swamped with offers in this terrific cause to assist our juniors.

LAST SHIELD ROUND BEFORE FINALS; CAN YOU HELP AT THE TRIPLE JUMP ?

This week is the final shield round (at Casey Fields) before the Shield Final next week on saturday 6th February at Lakeside.

To all athletes: Please make a special effort to assist in our duty help at the triple Jump. WE NEED YOU.

To 40+ women; we need some to run through a 200m as we need qualifiers for the final. (TJ, HJ and Hurdles too).

Juniors: some teams have an outside chance of sneaking into the finals, but we need a good turnout and athletes prepared to have a go at extra events. CAN YOU HELP?

OUTSTANDING MILERS CLUB RESULTS FROM CLUB ATHLETES

 

OUTSTANDING RESULTS from the club’s 26 participants at the milers Club meet.

It is particular to note the efforts of our juniors, boys and girls, their very fast times and their improvements.

Of particular note was James Alexander’s win in the A Grade 800m and Sam Toll’s first sub 4min 1500m at just 17yo. It was also terrific to see Haftu and Daniel back after long absences due too school commitments and injury, and Adam back from a very cold and wet christmas in the United Kingdom.
