Registrations for the Little Athletics events will be opening soon!

Event nominations for the 2019 event will be through the ResultsHQ portal making nomination much easier for families.

As part of our commitment to the development of the next generation of athletes, the WesTrac Bunbury Geographe Gift is again partnering with Bunbury & Districts Little Athletics Centre and Little Athletics WA (LAWA) for the 2019 event. A program of events both on and off the track is currently being developed for Little athletes and their families.

Details

There will be opportunities for

  • Little athletes from U8 – U15 of all abilities to compete in a range handicap events from 70m to 800m all on the same track as some of the stars of Australian athletics.
  • Athletes, parents and coaches to attend clinics and Q&A sessions over the weekend with some of the top athletes in the country.
  • Athlete mingle zone where Little Athletes can engage with the senior athletes asking them questions and get their autographs.

Program

The program is currently being finalized so dates and times for clinics could change to suit the availability of the senior athletes conducting the training – so watch this space!

Saturday March 2nd

We have been able to fit a number of events for Little Athletes of all ages and abilities into the schedule of the main events. Nominations for these events must be in by February 15th 2019 to give us time to sort out handicaps – we cannot accept late nominations or nominations on the day!

Sunday March 3rd

Bunbury Gift Day where the stars will go head to head to win major cash prizes! There will also be lots of other entertainment to keep the whole family entertained on and off the track.

70m for athletes who were in the U8 to U10 age group categories for the 2018-19 season
100m for athletes who were in the U11 to U15* in the 2018-19 season.
400m for U12 to U15* athletes:
800m for U12 to U15* athletes:
Under 15* is only open to those athletes who are still 14. Those who have turned 15 between January 1st and March 2nd 2019 compete in the U20 and Open category races for major cash prizes.

All races are handicap races based on athlete’s performances throughout the 2018-19 LA season so heats of the U11 to U15 100m might look like:

U11 - U15 Female - 100m Handicap Heats

U11 - U15 Female - 100m Handicap Heats

Heat 2

So you don’t need to be the fastest runner, you just want to have the need to compete. Winners of the final in each category will receive a commemorative Sash and trophy along with Gift vouchers from Intersport Bunbury. There will be numerous spot prizes/gift packs from Intersport Bunbury.
