WHAT'S ON

State Relay Championships!!!

Team BLAC put on an awesome show at the State Relay Championships on Saturday the 16th December. With 12 teams competing, we had 5 qualify for finals (3 on the day against the State's best). Amongst some great runs - and with our team watching some of the best runs they've ever seen from other teams - the U9 Boys almost triumphed for gold in the 4 x 100 mtrs. A hugely deserved silver (check out that pennant!) was a big highlight from the day - congrats boys. Almost overshadowed by their immediate appearance on LA Vic TV! 

 

Thats the wrap for the teams events this year. Focus now shifts to the State Multi-Event and the SMR Track & Field event. Full details here - http://www.lavic.com.au/Competition/Events

U13+ “Circuit” competition

I’m so excited to announce that 5 of the premier SMR clubs have banded together to launch a dedicated competition to help retain and develop U13+ athletes. Dubbed “The Circuit”, the program is intended to foster the great social connections athletes make as they get older, and promote a fun, competitive environment whilst representing their club. The 1st of 3 rounds is on 9 November at Mentone – kicking off under lights. Brighton hosts the 2nd round on 9 December. The 3rd and final round is at Sandringham at the start of Feb. I urge you to spread the word and encourage all older athletes to sign up.
