YMLA take out multiple awards

-

For the first time the club won the annual “Timing Solutions Centre” membership award (small centre category) for the Northern Country Region of which there are seven regions as well as also taking home the overall winner in this category for the state.

These awards recognise growth in membership registrati­on numbers and retention of members in the 2020/21 past season.

“To my knowledge it is the first of this type of award the club has won, and we are over the moon,” Danielle said.

“We were ecstatic when we got the call, and we are all so proud of the club especially after the past issues we had with our membership quantities.

“We have great numbers this year which is how we were eligible for the award as it was a record number of members.

“A big shout out of thanks to previous committee members, especially the 2018/19/20 committee members who were able to keep the momentum going for a highly successful 2020/21 season; they were small in numbers but big in determinat­ion.

“I’d like to say a massive thank you and give recognitio­n to the Duffy family. Without their persistenc­e the club would have fallen apart but now it is in a great position.

“There has been multiple new families join the club this year and we were previously struggling to get a committee but everything has fallen into place.

“This club is in safe hands and we are forever grateful to our present and passionate 2021/22 committee members.

“We have come so far ..... let’s keep it going.” Registrati­on for this season is also now open and the season will get started next week on Monday, October 18.

Due to current state restrictio­ns this will be a modified coaching and training as outlined by LAVIC.

Recently Yarrawonga Mulwala Little Athletics Club (YMLAC) president Danielle Skehan accepted not one but two awards on behalf of YMLAC presented by Little Athletics Victoria (LAVIC).
