The concept of Little Athletics was the brain child of Trevor Billingham and the first competition started in Victoria in the 1960’s. LAA N.S.W. commenced in 1970 and present day membership is over 40,000 athletes in 200 centres throughout the state. The Association is controlled by a Board of Management made up of voluntary workers who hold their positions for a maximum of 2 years before seeking re-election. The Association also has full time salaried staff.
Temora Little Athletics Centre Inc.requested affiliation with Little Athletics on the 10th of October, 1980 (40 years ago). Temora Little Athletics Centre is one of the centres in the Eastern Riverina Zone. Eastern Riverina is one of six zones that make up Region 4 of the Little Athletics Association of NSW.
Temora Little Athletics Centre is an incorporated body, governed by an elected committee. Meetings of the committee are held once per month and parents of athletes are welcome to attend.
Family, Fun and Fitness are the three main objectives of the Little Athletics movement. Boys and girls are offered a wide variety of athletic events in a happy environment with the emphasis on achieving personal bests.
TIMES, DATES AND LOCATION
Wednesday afternoon competition commences at 4.00pm and usually concludes around 6pm.
Boys and Girls compete separately and are divided into age groups. Age groups are based on the age of the athlete in the Calendar year in the year of registration.
Please note, that for all new registrations, proof of age is required at the time of enrolment.
WET WEATHER ROUTINE
If Little Athletics is unable to be held at Nixon Park due to unfavourable weather conditions, we will use the indoor courts at Temora Recreation Centre and do modified activities, from 4.30pm to 5.30pm. We ask for a contribution of $2.00 per athlete to assist paying for hire of the courts. Parents will be informed on our Facebook page, and the schools will also be informed. This will be organised by Emma Bowley and Greg Wiencke.
Please contact Greg Wiencke if you are interested in training.
Meetings are held every month and are open to all parents who wish to attend. The future of the Centre, as well as the day to day operations is discussed at these meetings. If you are interested in the running of the club, or wish to make any constructive and useful suggestions, your attendance will be most welcome. Please ask one of the Executive for the location of the meetings as it varies from time to time.
