THIRTY-FOUR Kiama Little Athletes have qualified to take part in 109 events at this year's regional championships, to be held at Jubilee Park, Wagga Wagga on February 16 and 17.
The outstanding result follows the December zone carnival where Kiama athletes brought home 28 gold medals, which was four times as many as last season.
There will be a regular Friday night competition on February 16. However, a number of the committee will be on duty at the regional championships so some extra help will be required, particularly with set up, timing and packing away.
For those attending the regional championships the Kiama centre has been allocated some official tasks. These are monitoring the discus and high jump areas at the regional championships. These tasks are shared with the other centres in the Mid-South Coast Zone, so if spread around will only take up a small amount of time during the two days.
Another club record was broken in the lead-up to Christmas, Quinn Abela recording a time of one minute, 53 seconds in the under-7 boys' 500m.
It is Quinn's second club record of the season after he broke the club's long-standing under-7 boys' long jump record with a leap of 3.45m in November.
There was a good turnout of athletes at the regular pointscore competition evening last Friday.
The pointscore competition comes to an end on Friday, March 15.
Athletes and parents, don't forget to collect the weekly tickets to see the improvements made across the season.
A reminder that to be eligible for end-of-year awards an athlete must have attended a minimum of 50 per cent of competition mornings or evenings from their date of registration. The three orientation days are included. The annual presentation night will be held on Friday, April 5.
