Victory is in having done your best. If you’ve done your best, then you’ve won.”
There are approximately 105 Little Athletics Centres located throughout Queensland. The Little Athletics motto of ‘Family, Fun and Fitness’ highlights that it is a group that involves the entire family. At Balmoral Little Athletics we realise the importance of family. Unlike most clubs, we have designed our training and competition nights to allow you to keep your weekends for family time.
Training night’s are held on Tuesday’s and competition nights on Wednesday’s. After much consideration, it was decided that mid-week sporting commitments were usually easier for families to manage and athletes and their families enjoyed the start and finish times too.
Training is held at BLAC fields at the Cnr of Stanley & Creek Roads, Carina on Tuesday nights from 6-7pm. Competition is held on Wednesday nights at the same place. We ask that you arrive on Wednesday’s at 5.30pm to allow time to sign your child in and be ready for competition to start at 5.45pm sharp.
Another unique thing that Balmoral offers on their program is an event each week for our Tiny Tots. What is a Tiny Tot? A Tiny Tot is a sibling of an athlete who is still too young to sign up to Little Athletics. Each week on competition nights we offer the Tiny Tots a chance to experience one event. It encourages their growth, confidence and most importantly it’s lots of fun! These events can include a Tot’s Scramble (sprint) (with ‘on your marks, get set’ and the pop of the starter gun), mini vortex and long jump.
As a club, Balmoral’s emphasis on fun for the family is also highlighted at certain times of the year i.e. Christmas, Easter, Halloween and at the end of the season. Usually a theme is decided by the committee for example, crazy socks and hats, super hero’s etc. We modify the event schedule for that particular night which might include a Mum and Dad sprint, obstacle course, family relay etc. We give out rewards randomly to best dressed, relay winner or athlete having the most fun. These nights are an excellent way for family’s to celebrate and have a laugh together.
