on behalf of
Your MWLA Committee
In preparation for the Manly Warringah Little Athletics Annual General Meeting to be held on Sunday 29 May 2022, please read this notification calling for committee position nominations and any Notices of Motion.
Notices of Motion are due by 5.00pm Sunday 1 May, 2022 and Nominations for the Committee are due by 5.00pm Sunday 22 May 2022.
We welcome all parents willing to assist with our committee in the upcoming season, whether it is in a formal committee role or in a support role as a “friend of the committee”. If you wish to discuss any aspect of a committee position, please contact me, or view our Regulations for a general summary of each role.
As you may have noticed this season, we have vacancies in key positions, most notably Manager for IT. Without someone with technology experience, our weekly competition, in particular, is impacted. If you are able to assist we are happy to talk you through what this involves and perhaps share the role with others.
This Saturday, 12 March 2022, we have decided to try a novel program due to the recent flooding affecting some parts of the athletics facility.
It’s called ‘Create Your Own Adventure‘ and while it is likely to test our patience and require a lot of co-ordination amongst Age Mangers, Starters, Officials and Parent Helpers we hope this will give our athletes plenty of opportunity to select the events they enjoy most.
Head to our Facebook site and you will see the program posted as well as on Instagram
King & Queen of the Track
Importantly, we will have the King & Queen of the Track races on at 9.15am for 9.30am after they were postponed last week. This exciting annual 100m sprint event showcases our fastest eight female and fastest eight male athletes with the winners names inscribed on a perpetual trophy.
And of course, we congratulate all our athletes who have qualified for the LANSW State Championships at SOPAC on 19 – 20 March 2022 and wish them good fortune and lots of fun competing in their events.
Unfortunately we have to cancel the competition today.
While the front track can be used, the surface on sections of the back track are lifting which prevents hurdles . The grass surrounds are impossible to stand on which would also prevent some marshalling of groups and the position of the timing personnel on the back track. With potential competition limited to just an event or two, disappointingly we have to cancel.🥲
Tomorrow still MAY go ahead, if we don’t get any more rain tonight. We will update tomorrow morning by 7am. But please note, regardless of the weather, that there will be:
☔️ NO LONG JUMP
☔️ NO TRIPLE JUMP
☔️ NO SCISSOR HIGH JUMP
☔️ NO SKILLS/DRILLS
☔️ NO IN-FIELD DISCUS OR SHOT
The remaining field events and all track events will be dependant on the weather tonight, so stay tuned for the morning update!
Importantly, we hope to be able to still hold our annual King & Queen of the Track. This exciting showcases our fastest boy and fastest girl at the Centre over 100m.
Photos from 6.00pm highlight the atrocious conditions.
Due to severe flooding of the track; jumps pits; throws circles; and much of the infield we are forced to cancel the competition tomorrow.
With more rain forecast tonight and the Wakehurst Parkway currently closed to traffic in both directions, conditions and access are unlikely to improve.
Photos from 6.45pm highlight the atrocious conditions.
Enjoy a rare sleep in, meanwhile best of luck to our many dual athletes competing at the ANSW Junior Championships at SOPAC today, tomorrow and Sunday.
