This Saturday marks our last competition for the year, we are up to Program 1 of our last 5 programs before Championships next year. Please keep an eye out on Facebook and our Website for updated information.
On another note, we have another broken record and its huge!
TEYA SAVILLE BREAKS A STATE RECORD IN JAVELIN
Our super talented U16 athlete, Teya Saville, broke the little Athletics WA State Record at State Relays. Teya threw an amazing 45.09 metre throw which for a 15 year old student, is an absolutely brilliant throw. But throws like that come with practice and i was able to capture Teya at training with her dedicated and very effective coach Kimberley Bodini. The pair have been a team for a few good years now and one could say, its a “winning formula”.
Teya’s record will be acknowledged in the Southern Districts Records along with the State Little Athletics.
Congratulations Teya! We are so proud of you!
TORI MOSS STRIKES AGAIN! ANOTHER BROKEN RECORD
Another talented lady is our Tori Moss, Tori broke a record in the 300m hurdles last Saturday. The old record was 49.95 seconds. Tori smashed it with a record of 47.81. Tori your a gun! Well done and keep up the stunning performances. You are a pleasure to watch!
SATURDAY 15 DECEMBER EVENTS
Folks its a big day this Saturday, let me tell you why! We have the magical man in red making a visit so please let your kiddies know to keep an eye out!
We also have a free dress day for the kiddies. Clothing needs to be appropriate for competing and rego number, age group and Coles badge must be visible. If you are dressing up a gold coin donation will be required.
What a whirlwind it was that took place on Saturday…..literally! That wind was amazing how it just shot through the middle of the track and uprooted the tents. It was amazing, I hope no one got hurt in that event! Thanks to all those that pitched in to rectify the situation back to normality.
It was a huge weekend last weekend with the Championships and our normal Competition being back to back. We hope everyone got through it and are recovering for next Saturdays competition.

AGE GROUP OF THE WEEK
Our Age Group of the Week this week is our Under 12 boys…I’m not sure if all of you saw it but Kobe fell over in the hurdles and some of the boys in the race stopped mid race and helped him. Did not finish the race, their mate was more important. We love that. You boys are so thoughtful and caring. Was beautiful to watch. The race was re run and I believe Kobe is ok. But well done U12 boys, what great mateship!
See you on the track,
Another big weekend at the track…
Broken Record at Bill & Betty’s
Huge Congratulations to our U17 Girls Track Relay team for breaking the Record at Bill & Betty’s on Sunday with a fabulous time of 4:08:91, the previous record was set by Melville in 2016 with 4:10:18. Our amazing U17 girls are Abbey Cilia, Tori Moss, Katie Mobilia and Eliza Griffin. They were on fire out there! We are proud of all 4 of you!
Well done also to all the athletes who competed at Bill & Betty’s, while it was a somewhat low key event with only 3 districts competing, that being Southern Districts, Melville and Rockingham, it was a great experience and they had a great time from all reports!
A big thank you to Zoe Richards for organizing this event. A lot of hard work went into it. I would also like to thank the many Executive Committee members who helped on that day as well.
BBQ, Photos and Training Session
Next Sunday, 25 November at 12 noon we will be holding our photo day, bbq and training opportunity for all our State Field and Track Relay kids. Jump and Throw sites will be open for training (with coaches on site) for members of field relay teams ONLY.
Age Group of the Week
Here they are, our Age Group of the Week, our U7 boys, sitting beautifully colouring in at Discus. I was Key Official at junior Discus last Saturday, and it dawned to me the night before, paper and textas, books and stickers, lets see how it goes. Well, it was a hit! Some of them didn’t want to leave the discus site, or were too entrenched in colouring in to throw a discus. They were chuffed to show me what they drew and i put an “A+” sticker on there for their super effort. I will be bringing the textas and paper down each week for Turbo and Junior discus..believe me it helps! Oh and i had them clean up after themselves for the next age group too. Well done U7 boys! (thank you to Brad Scott for taking the photo too)
See you on the track! Enjoy your week,
There is so much happening!! Where do I begin!!
Centre and Club Captains
