The Little Athletics organization is committed to promoting fun and active life styles for young people and their families while also assisting young people in gaining skills in the basic run, jump and throw activities which are the basis for all sports and athletics events.
Our local Little Athletics centre, Border Blues, has been helping members to gain and develop these skills for many years while having fun and making new friends. Our centre is fortunate in having two Athletics Australia accredited coaches, Susan Bright and Michelle McBurney, who are dedicated to passing on their knowledge to upcoming athletes.
Over past years and up to the current time, many of our past and present Border Blues Little Athletes, have had great success in not only regional and State LA's competitions, but also excellent results in schools and adult athletics association events. Border Blues athletes have competed successfully in State, National and Oceania competitions for both Nsw and Qld and Australia, and in addition, have been great ambassadors for our Tenterfield area.
Greatpast local athletes like Mikaela Sullivan, George Jones, Kimberley Bright-Mync, (to name just a few), are being folloeed in their footsteps by our current athletic champions - Lachlan Dorward, Ella Wishart, Abbey and Isaac Jones, and Jake Murphy.
Border Blues new season starts Tuesday 25th September with the first activity evening commencing at 5pm at Federation Park and finishing with their weekly sausage sizzle by 6.30 pm.
All young athletes up to 16 years are welcome to come along at no charge to try out athletics on the first two weeks !
Tash off to nationals
After a break from Physical Culture, local girl Tash Brierley was awarded third place at the QLD Junior Physie Championships on the weekend which has secured herself a spot at Nationals to be held in Sydney in November. Older sister Jessica, although did not place, it was a great practice for Senior Trials in Sydney, for her chance to get to Nationals at Sydney Opera House. Jessica obtained a 1st and a 5th in two recent Competitions and Tash two 1st.
Due to Tash attending Catholic High School in Stanthorpe and Jessica at boarding school in Warwick (learning correspondently) , they became members of Toowoomba Physie and Dance. With the guidance of wonderful Associates Rachel Sanders and Taneil Willing (former Tenterfield Locals), and Kamya Jennings of Stanthorpe, the girls have been able to continue their love for Physie with great results.
