Little Athletics sign-on day big success

Little Athletics: Granite Belt Little Athletics held a successful sign-on day on Saturday.

Parents and athletes had the opportunity to learn more about the program, collect registration packs full of goodies to help through the season and get assistance with registering.

A highlight was the fitting and ordering of the exciting newly-designed shirt.

Tanielle Crase of Little Athletics Queensland attended the event to offer support and answer queries and only had good things to say about the organising volunteers who are eager for the club to succeed.

"They've been a really good, organised club from what I've heard and are always keeping in communication with us,” Crase said.

"With such good organisers, we look forward to an exciting season ahead.”

Sessions will be held on the Stanthorpe State High oval on Saturdays from 3-5pm starting September 8.

Currently there are 38 children registered but numbers are expected to jump up to 60 in the coming weeks.

Children will provisionally be placed into four different age groups, depending on final numbers, which include under 6 and 7s, under 8 and 9s, under 10 and 11s and over 12s and the athletes will rotate thought different sporting stations. The first week will include sprints, relays, long jump and discus.
