Little Athletics training is starting to get serious with competitions just around the corner

The Cooloola Coast Little Athletics Centre (CCLA) is once again benefiting from the Little Athletics Australia national partnership with Coles, by the supply of bananas.

They are provided as a healthy snack that is also packed with the ‘good stuff’ that builds on a morning of hard training.

And those training sessions are starting to get serious as the SunCoast Regional Relays are just around the corner. As athletics is a solo sport the team element of relays marks a social day on the calendar for the Centre.

CCLA is classified as a small centre therefore teams can be formed with other small centres to make up numbers. The field events are held in pairs however athletes are entered individually and teamed up after competing according to best performance results.

Personal bests are also being recorded for the McDonalds Achievement Awards program. These results will be challenged during the season to see if athletes can beat themselves!

Training is from 8am every Saturday morning on the Tin Can Bay School oval. For more information email ccla2014@outlook.com or call Jess Milne on 0411 218 254.
