Weekly Newsletter – February 9

No regular weekend this weekend

This weekend is the annual Eastern Metro Region (EMR) Track and Field Carnival, and we wish the best of luck to all of our awesome Littles who are competing! With 46 of our U9 to U16 athletes competing here it is set to be an absolutely massive day for YRA.

As such a large portion of our community will be at the Regions Carnival, regular Saturday competition on Saturday 12th will not take place. YRAs summer competition will resume next Saturday 19th February.

Skills Night with Coach Kate

This Friday evening, 11th February, from 5 – 6.30pm we will be holding a Skills Session for all under 6 – under 8 athletes. Join us at the track to improve your skills at a twilight session of fun, games and water play!

Bring your hat, drink bottle, sunscreen and a smile. There will be no canteen facilities available, but we will be providing fruit(watermelon and oranges) to re-fuel halfway through. We will need lots of parent helpers to make this successful.

If you are feeling unwell, stay home and get tested.
