Our Head Coach Wayne Dyball and our team of experienced coaches are once again holding a free Coaching Day for returning members from 9am till 12pm on Sunday 29th September. We'll end the activities with a free sausage sizzle.
It's a great chance to get back on track for the upcoming season. Online registrations close Saturday 28th - CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
Coaching Day is actually on the morning of the same day as our Come & Try session, however Coaching Day is for returning members only, whereas Come & Try is primarily for new members although we'd really like a few returning members to come along to help show our prospective members how to perform the various events and make them feel welcome.
A fun day to try out athletics!
Sunday 29th Sep 2019
12.30 - 2.30 pm
Our Open Day is a great opportunity to come and try athletics before the summer season starts. Kids will get the chance to try out some events including a variety of jumps, running and throws and just get a feel for what it's like to do Little Athletics at Mentone. We'll have a host of fun things to do including a free sausage sizzle on the day. And if you are keen and are ready to register, you will be able to do this on the day and sort out your uniforms as well.
The 2019 State Cross Country Championships will be held on the Saturday 3rd August 2019 and will be taking place at Lake Dewar in Myrniong.
Date: Saturday 3rd August 2019
