The Dorset Little Athletics Club celebrated it’s 50th anniversary last year which is an amazing effort. We were a foundation club when Knox Little Athletics Centre was first established. We’re currently a very youthful club, attracting a lot of young athletes over the past few years. We have a stable committee with a great financial position and are a great destination club for any new athletes interested in trying Little Athletics as a summer activity.
2018/2019 Season Wrap
The Track and Field season for 2018-2019 was a successful one for Dorset. Over this season we had a number of new families join us with a total of 23 registered athletes from 17 families. We were lucky enough to have quite a few under sixes last year, making us quite a youthful club with a great future.
We’ve had some good success on the track and field. Jake Frost lead our PB count on 27, closely followed by Ava Scott, Jade Jones, Evelyn Zwarts, Emily Block and Angus Shuttleworth who all ended in the 20′s. It’s worthy to note Isaac Connors and Xavier Stevenson’s achievements this year. Both boys were in their first year in the U6′s this year, and with less events than all the other age groups they still both managed to achieve 16 PB’s, whilst leading all the events in their age group which is a great achievement. We look forward to watching their success in the future.
The club committee also achieved a number of things last year. An excellent season, three fundraising events, upgraded signage (which helped us win the best presented club award at the first meet of the year), uniforms for the committee and Chief Officials, a trophy upgrade strategy, a number of purchases to help the club on event days, and now an updated constitution.
Congratulations to all our athletes. We look forward to seeing you all again, along with our new recruits, for the 2019/20 season ‘on the hill’!
