This weeks break in our regular program saw over 80 BHLAC athletes compete at the Eastern Metropolitan Region Track & Field Championships at Knox Athletics Track over Saturday and Sunday.
It was a very busy program and was great to see so many great results. We have had a number qualify for the State Track & Field Championships at Lakeside in March. Congratulations to everyone that competed and for those that will head to the State Championships in March.
The BHLAC Committee would like to thank all the parents for their support over the two days. We had over 70 duties to fill across the Long Jump Pits and Call Room and it all ran like clockwork. Thank you to Rosa Deol and Rajinder Atwal for acting as our Team Managers. A special thank you to our Chief Marshall's over the two days. Having your expertise definitely helped with the smooth running of the program.
We now are entering the last quarter of the 2021/22 Summer Program. This week is program A. We will continue for 3 straight weeks where we will see the completion of the 'official competition program'. As mentioned at the last Sunday program the Committee were meeting to discuss an extension of the season.
We are pleased to announce that although the season for competition points will conclude on March 6th, we will return to Hagenauer Reserve for 2 extra weeks immediately after the State Track & Field Championships.
Sunday 20th March will be the BHLAC Relayathon Fundraiser. This will be the 50th year that Little Athletics will be supporting the Royal Children's Hospital with this fundraiser. More details will follow in the coming weeks but it will be a great afternoon at the track - and all for a great cause.
The following week (Sunday 27th March) will also be a Program Fun Day and once again more details will follow in the coming weeks.
We have seen some fantastic results at BHLAC this season. With 3 weeks to go of the official competition program we have no doubt we are going to see many more. We look forward to seeing everyone back at the track this Sunday.
With the announcement of an additional 2 weeks of athletics the Season Calendar has been updated.

BHLAC Relayathon - Sunday 20th March
This is the 50th year that Little Athletics Victoria has supported the Royal Children's Hospital. On Sunday 20th March, BHLAC will devote the Sunday program to the RCH Good Friday Appeal and raise as much money as we can for the kids. There will be a number of fundraising initiatives on the day. It would be great to see as many members on the day helping the cause.
Mid-week training at BHLAC
Mid week training is offered to all BHLAC members. It is held on Wednesday afternoons between 4:30 & 5:30pm. To assist our Head Coach Steve Cain with his planning, we ask all parents to register their children for each weekly session by Midday on the day.

Thank you to our Sponsors
Its fair to say that the presence of the BHLAC area at the EMR Championships at Knox did not go unnoticed. With our new sponsor marquees and our flags on display it really highlighted how lucky we are to have such amazing sponsors supporting our club and our athletes. Without the support of Robinson Gill Lawyers, Smile to Go Dentistry and Lexus of Blackburn 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.
