Ipswich Twilight Carnival - 21 Jan 2017

Five of our Colleges Little Athletics Centre athletes represented us proudly at the Ipswich Twighlight Carnival on 21st January. Alana Plummer U13G, Mason Plummer U10B, Oliver Deane U9B, Caleb McLennan & Lennox Plummer U7B braved the particularly unkind weather conditions and strong competition giving their very best in each event. Special mention goes to Caleb who came second in U7 Long Jump. Well done athletes!


2016/17 Season

Welcome to the 2016/2017 season, which runs from September to March each year.  We meet every Friday night from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at Mt Crosby Sportsground, and Tiny Tots from 6:00pm to 7:00pm for children under five who are too young to register for the standard program.

Our first meet of the season will be held on Friday 7th October, from 6pm to 8pm at Mt Crosby Sportsground.  Fees for the 2016/17 season will remain the same as the previous three years, at $105 per child for the first two children in a family, and $95 for each subsequent child. Tiny Tots cost $50 per child.  We charge a $20 parent levy which is refundable at the end of the year upon request, provided parents have assisted througout the season with the weekly tasks such as canteen, time keeping, measuring, etc.

2015/16 Season

The 2015/2016 season has come to an end and we would like to congratulate all athletes on their performances. At our annual Presentation Day we announced the winners of the Most Improved trophies. Athletes receive points each time they improve on their previous best result for an event. These are totalled at the end of the season, and a trophy is given to the athlete with the most improvement points for their age group. Congratulations to our Overall Most Improved athletes Tamsyn (U11) and Joshua (U9).

The 2015/16 winners were:

Group - Girls Most Improved Athlete
Overall Girl Tamsyn  (U11)
U6G Chelsea
U7G Stephanie
U8G Hannah
U9G Stephanie
U11G Elkie
U12G Isabella


Group - Boys Most Improved Athlete
Overall Boy Joshua  (U9)
U6B Nathan
U7B ** Chester
U7B ** Oscar
U8B Oliver
U9B Cooper
U11B Paul
U12B Matthew

** When athletes tie we have a series of steps we go through to determine the winner, such as assigning additional points for those times an athlete equalled their previous best (but did not actually beat it).  This year we had a first with a tie in Under 7 Boys which no matter what we looked at, we could not break the tie.  And they were brothers.  So in the end all we could do was call it a tie and congratulations to Chester and Oscar as joint winners.

Every Friday 6:00pm to 8:00pm (Sep to Mar)
