It was a really great day at Hagenauer Reserve today. Week 11 featured Program B and was focused on sprints & hurdles on the back straight. Not only that but Javelin, High Jump along with Discus also featured prominently.
We have a lot to be proud of this season at BHLAC. Membership numbers have significantly increased, Program changes have been made for the benefit of the day and the experience for everyone. We have also had an amazing amount of parent support this year. It is a well-known fact that the Little Athletics Program would not be possible if it wasn't for parents helping out each week. This season we have seen an almost full list of duties each week prior to the Sunday start time.
Whether it is setup or timing support, or even marshalling, the club has been supported so well and it has made for a much improved atmosphere at the track for the 2021/22 season. So to all of you parents THANK YOU!!! The BHLAC Committee thanks each and every one of you for your support this season!
Next Sunday is the last round of the Club Championship Program. This means its the last week for our athletes to accrue competition points that go towards the end of season awards. A reminder that the end of season awards day is on Sunday April 10. This day will feature a full day of events. In the morning we will commence with a Cross Country Come & Try run at the track. This is open to all athletes that may be returning for another Cross Country Season or to anyone that want's to try it for the first time. There will be more information about this to follow over the coming weeks,
Following this we will hold the BHLAC Annual General Meeting in the Clubhouse. We would love to see as many parents as possible and also athletes as this will roll into our end of season awards ceremony followed by our final fun break up and BBQ.
Before then we have a few more weeks of Athletics to run so we look forward to seeing you over the coming weeks. Thanks again for your support today and see you next week at the track!

Thank you to our Sponsors
We are very grateful at BHLAC to have such amazing support from Robinson Gill Lawyers, Smile to Go Dentistry and Lexus of Blackburn. Without them we would not have been able to fund some significant improvements this season.
This season we have added the new lap scoreboard, commenced phase one of the new BHLAC uniform, added some new lane cone markers, new signage and promotional banners and even purchased a new Toyota Rav 4 club car which has made a significant difference to our set up and pack up process.
It would be great to repay the faith that our sponsors have had in us by supporting them any way we can. Please consider our sponsors as we thank them for their ongoing support. Click on the link below to head to our sponsor page
