Nar­ro­gin and Districts Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Cen­tre started its 2017/18 sea­son last Satur­day, with chil­dren from nu­mer­ous towns at­tend­ing.

The club in­cludes chil­dren from the un­der-6 age cat­e­gory through to un­der-17s, and Satur­day’s meet, spon­sored by RJ’s Car Wash, at­tracted young ath­letes from Katan­ning, Dum­b­leyung, Wa­gin, Pin­gelly, Wick­epin, Pin­jarra and Nar­ro­gin.

The club wel­comed back mem­bers from pre­vi­ous sea­sons and or­gan­is­ers were rapt to see many new mem­bers and oth­ers tak­ing ad­van­tage of the op­por­tu­nity to come and try be­fore sign­ing up for the year. The day’s pro­gram in­cluded shot-put, javelin/turbo javelin, long jump, triple jump, hur­dles, 100m and 400m.

Re­turn­ing mem­bers were look­ing to beat their per­sonal bests from last sea­son, while new mem­bers were set­ting theirs.

All the chil­dren had a great time and had made new friends be­fore the first event even started, which was great to see as the club’s fo­cus is on fun, fam­ily and fit­ness.

The next meet will be on Satur­day, October 14 at Thomas Hogg Oval, with set-up start­ing at 8.30am.

New mem­bers are al­ways wel­come.
