ACT Little Athletics State Championships

Last weekend saw 4 of our squad runners participate in the ACT Little Athletics State Championships in Woden, ACT.

All of the young athletes achieved new PB’s in EVERY event they entered!!

Personal Bests (PB’s) are a fantastic way for young people to see how much they are improving.

It makes their experience of Athletics a positive adventure about challenging yourself to become the best you can be.

Placings and medals are always exciting… But my aim is to encourage young athletes to stay focused on always giving their best.

Be it in training…or on the track!

 

Young people do not need to be training with a similar workload of an adult athlete….respect for their growing bodies and allowing them to enjoy other sports and “free downtime” is essential in my opinion.

Let’s keep our young people engaged in sports for life!!

Congratulations to:

Matthew for his incredible Pb in the 1500m!

Madeleine for her HUGE 46 sec Pb in her 1500m

 

Daisy for 3 fantastic PB’s in Long Jump, Discus and 200m
