Club thrilled at record num­bers

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

UWA Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Cen­tre (UWALAC) held its first day of com­pe­ti­tion for its sum­mer 2015-16 sea­son on Oc­to­ber 17 at McGil­livray Oval in Mt Clare­mont.

UWALAC com­mit­tee mem­ber Ruthy Tol­con said the club was proud to achieve record num­bers for its new sea­son.

“The first day of com­pe­ti­tion is ex­cit­ing no mat­ter what age group you are in,” Tol­con said.

“The un­der-7s, many of whom have been wait­ing for their sixth birth­day to ar­rive so they can join in the fun like their older broth­ers and sis­ters, are al­ways de­light­ful to watch.

“As ath­letes grow older, their events be­come more chal­leng­ing, either by in­creased weight for throws or in­creased dis­tance for runs.

“The un­der-11s this year have been in­tro­duced to Fos­bury flop in­stead of scis­sor kick for high jump.”
