Season Celebration Round recap

Last weekend we celebrated the hugely exciting season of Little Athletics that was had with a slightly different program than usual; featuring handicapped 100m and 300m events as well plenty of field events, and parent competitors!

There were no doubt many sore bodies on Saturday afternoon as parents chased down our juniors, some successfully despite challenging handicaps!

We celebrated the final rounds of Little Athletics for Bailey Van Bert and Sascha Carroll, who have represented the club for a number of years and now leave our Little Athletics team. We congratulate them on their countless PBs and medals they have won, and thank them both for being such awesome role models to all of our Littles! YRA looks forward to seeing them both join our Seniors team.

Presentation Day

Date: This Saturday 26th March

Location: Morrison Reserve, Mt Evelyn

Time: 10:00am – 12:30/2:00pm for track cleanup

We have an appropriately warm and sunny day forecast for the end of our Summer Season of Little Athletics, so remember your hat and put on some sunscreen! Our Presentation Day/Team Round runs from 10am – 12.30pm on Saturday 26th March. It will be a celebration of teamwork and friendship, with the opportunity to share in the success of our wonderful club and its athletes.

Athletes can wear free dress, with no uniform required! It will also be free entry, including a free sausage from the BBQ. Drinks and snacks will be available to purchase from the canteen(closed during presentations).

Thank you to those fabulous volunteers who have signed up to help out on the day, please double check the roster to ensure you are available when needed.

Parking will once again be shared with Netball, so take care and consider parking away from the track and walking in.

Only 2 weeks to go!

As the summer season draws to a close, we are fast approaching the beginning of YRA’s cross country season.

  • Round 1 – Saturday 2nd April , Lillydale Lake
  • Round 2 – 9th April, Margaret Lewis Reserve
  • Round 3 – 30th April, location TBD

The committee are extremely excited to bring XC back for 2022.

Join us for the first two rounds of XC, returning for Round 3 after school holidays, and with a full season calendar on April 30th.

All ages. All abilities. All welcome.

Beginning a new season is the perfect opportunity to put your hand up and volunteer. YRAXC is entirely reliant on volunteers to set up, run, and pack up and we need all of the help that we can get. The more volunteers we have, the less everyone has to volunteer.

Please contact Max Savill-Bentley (0428191006), or pop your name and contact details on the volunteer roster sheet if you would like to contribute as a volunteer. Click here to visit the volunteer roster.
