Wamuran little athletics season underway

Wamuran Little Athletics began its 2023-24 season last Friday night, following four trial nights in which participants could ‘have a go’ for free.

Organisers said there was a great turnout last Friday, with families helping set up and pack up after completion of the weekly program which is shown on social media each week.

The first part of the season concludes on November 10, and then part two of the season begins on February 2 following a holiday break.

More junior athletes are welcome to come on board, and can register online at or visit at a club night.

With the club nights staged at Wamuran Sports Complex on Campbells Pocket Road on Fridays, the office opens at 5.30pm before the program starts with a warm-up at 5.45pm.

With hurdles, javelin, shot put, high jump, long jump, triple jump, sprints, long distance and walks on offer, all results are recorded to ensure personal bests are captured by the end of the season.

Tiny Tots is for 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds as this category is all game based and involves group sports with a coach.

The remaining age groups range from U6s to U17s.

Each Friday night the canteen is open while there is also a barbecue – all run by local volunteers – while families can mingle and enjoy good community spirit.

Already the club is seeking new committee people, with Jacs Schulz retiring this year following two years as president and four as secretary.

A new committee will be needed for next season, to allow the youngsters to experience a range of sports. 

The club can be contacted on social media or by email at
