Weekly Newsletter – February 2

Choose you own event week

Best of luck to all of our Littles competing at Region Track and Field Carnivals next weekend!

For our juniors not competing at Regions this Saturday is choose your own event day, scroll down below for full information and a copy of the program to choose your own event!

We have 48 athletes entered for Region Track and Field, a 45% increase on previous years. Well done to the Committee, Age group leaders, and parents on this awesome result. Any parent needing more information before regions, including club Uniform, please see Dannie McKinnon 0407867852 or Katie Clarke 0403819391

This week for Choose Your Own Event day, we want to encourage athletes to choose the events they will be competing in on the 12th and 13th February at Region Track and Field. The athletes from younger age groups or that aren’t entered at Region should choose events to help reach their PBs levels or simply their favourite events. Please find a copy of the program to choose your own event this weekend, print it off and bring it along!

It’s a busy day and a week where we need parent helpers at events rather than following their children around at each event. Age Group Managers will ensure the athletes get to all their correct events. If parents can assist by completing the attached and sending it with the athletes to give to their Age Group Managers Saturday morning. For those choosing Javelin, Walks, or 200m/300m Hurdles make sure you check the earlier starting times.

For more information, make sure to check the Yarra Ranges Athletics Clubhouse before the day.
