LITTLE Athletics is not only about being healthy and keeping fit, it’s about developing and learning how to be a great sport too.

This week a great example of sportsmanship was shown by one of our Under 9 boys, Clarrie. Well done mate; it was fantastic to see you congratulating your fellow competitors at the finish line. This is just one of the many examples that our kids are all showing and developing a life long skill.

This week we had 33 athletes competing and they achieved 56 personal bests.
