Ath­let­ics do­na­tion well re­ceived

The Free Press (Corowa) - - CLASSIES (03) -

Corowa RSL Club Gen­eral Man­ager Peter Nor­ris, on be­half of the club, was de­lighted to do­nate $1500 to­wards the Corowa Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Club’s new scis­sor kick mats.

The mats were a vi­tal pur­chase for the club as its old mats were rather dated and, to en­sure the safety of the chil­dren, new ones were needed.

The club is very thank­ful to the Corowa RSL Club and has had a suc­cess­ful start to the sea­son with 82 kids reg­is­tered for the sea­son.

Corowa RSL Club Gen­eral Man­ager Peter Nor­ris said when pre­sented with the op­por­tu­nity to sup­port the Corowa Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Club it was an easy de­ci­sion for the club board which recog­nises grass­roots sport as a key com­po­nent in com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment.

“Lo­cal chil­dren ben­e­fit from par­tic­i­pat­ing in both healthy and fun ac­tiv­i­ties and while there is the chance of iden­ti­fy­ing fu­ture stars, more im­por­tantly chil­dren are taught so­cial in­ter­ac­tion,” he said.

“There is also the added ben­e­fit of pos­si­bly de­vel­op­ing life-long healthy fit­ness habits and the im­pact on this is price­less.

“The Corowa RSL Club is de­lighted to con­trib­ute to this special ac­tiv­ity in our lo­cal com­mu­nity; we be­lieve we have a key role to play in the de­vel­op­ment of our lo­cal chil­dren.” Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Club Pres­i­dent Me­gan Copolino has done a great job with event pro­gram­ming, mak­ing it ex­cit­ing for the kids each week and the club’s new on­line re­sults make it easy for kids to check their in­di­vid­ual progress and track their per­sonal bests. Kids are en­joy­ing the sea­son with many look­ing to rep­re­sent Corowa Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Club at other clubs for open days and cham­pi­onships. With five meets left for this sea­son and then with the club start­ing back af­ter school hol­i­days, it’s not too late to sign kids up to lit­tle ath­let­ics.
