Little Athletics is all about doing your best
CREATING interest among school students in athletics has become second nature to Darren Wensor.
Working for Little Athletics NSW, Wensor spends a lot of his time visiting schools to teach students the basics in a fun atmosphere.
Last week Wensor visited 1800 kids over three days as he went to seven primary schools in the area covering all age groups.
As the weather warms up announcing that summer is on the way, Wensor is hoping that some of the students he's talked to this week give serious consideration to spending their Friday evenings doing Little Athletics at either the Coffs Harbour or Sawtell/Toormina clubs.
Greg Robson is a parent who has worked tirelessly for the Sawtell/Toormina club and he says that it doesn't matter which club you go to, the young athletes are going to have lots of fun.
The parents are also going to get great value for money in a social atmosphere that everyone can enjoy.
"When Little Athletics is held on a Friday afternoon, it isn't really about winning, it's more do with achieving your personal best," he said.
"Even if the kids do athletics for only a couple of years, it leads into so many other sports that they may play later on."
