A message from our Club President
On behalf of the Committee of Hawkesbury City Little Athletics Centre, I would like to welcome all athletes and families to the 2020/2021 season. We look forward to seeing many familiar faces and would like to extend a special warm welcome to all the new families joining us this season.
It is a pleasure to be involved in HCLA, where friendships are formed and the ‘family, fun and fitness’ message is seen all the times. We are proud to provide a quality program of athletics events with a focus on fun, fitness, and skills development in a safe, family-friendly and inclusive environment.
Our programs provide an array of athletic events including sprinting, middle and long distance running, hurdling, race walking, jumping (long, triple and high), throwing (discus, shot put and javelin) and cross country running. We also offer free training to our athletes. While athletics is by its very nature competitive, our goal for all our athletes is to achieve PBs (Personal Bests) by improving their own times, distances and heights, but above all, to have fun.
Our Tuesday night competitions are the backbone of our club and those anywhere near our grounds on a Tuesday night will hear the laughter and loud cheers of our parents, grandparents and athletes as they encourage and spur each other on to achieve their own personal bests.
We are extremely fortunate to have very supportive and involved parents and families at our club. Our field has no fences behind which parents need to stay. We encourage you to be with your children and assist in the running of our club and events. Whether it be helping with the set up or pack up, helping on the track or at the field events, helping in the canteen, assisting the age managers or helping with crowd control it is all important. The support of everyone at our club ensures we function successfully and fosters our positive club spirit.
Last season was very successful for HCLA in terms of athlete development, achievement and enjoyment. We are growing from strength to strength and I look forward to our continued success this season.
To keep up with all the news and events from HCLA, please visit our website. I encourage you to regularly check the calendar, events and training sections. Also remember to like our Facebook pages (centre page and training page) and follow us on Instagram.
I wish for you a season full of fun, friendship, improvement and achievement. Set goals and work towards achieving them but always do it with a smile and in the true spirit of Little Athletics.
