Stormers Forecast – Session #1 26/10/22

Session #1 – 26/10/2022
Welcome Stormers to our first training session of the 2022/23 little athletics season!

Due to a number of factors beyond our control, this is not the start to the season we had originally planned. However in true Stormers fashion, we are soldiering on. 

Please take the time to read through the following important information ahead of our first session.

The oval at the Murrumbateman Recreation Grounds is currently unsafe and unusable for our little athletics sessions. We expect it will continue to be unusable for atleast the first four weeks of our season, but will be monitoring and providing updates.

The safety of our athletes, volunteers and all of our club members is and always will be our number one priority. That is at the heart of all of our decisions for the club, and in particular our delivery of this start of the season.

Because of these factors we will be delivering a modified program. Here are is the key information families need to know this week:
➡️ First training session on Wednesday 26 October starting at 6pm at the Murrumbateman Rec Grounds.
➡️ If the session is cancelled due to rain/storms, club will be advised on our FB page and a post on our website by 3pm on the Wednesday.
➡️ Important-Please be careful when driving in, around and parking at the Rec grounds. There are pot holes, uneven surfaces and many of the usual grass parking areas are VERY soft and we don’t want to have cars getting bogged. Please use common sense.
➡️ Modified Program – this will not be our usual Little Athletics night.
– While the oval is unavailable we will be using different areas of the Rec Grounds and will not be recording events.
– These sessions will focus on skills building.
– We also expect it will take longer to move around and the groups won’t get through as many events as they would normally.
– Please be patient, some of our volunteers are new and this programming is new to everyone.
– We hope everyone will be gracious and understand we are doing our best in a challenging situation to still deliver something for the children.

Need to know:
➡️ Rego patches and uniforms will be available in the markets shed from 5.40pm.
➡️ Warm up starts for all groups at 6pm at the Village green (where the markets are held)
➡️ Athletes will then line up in age groups, meet their Age Manager and head off to their first activity of the night.
➡️ REMINDER – parents are expected to stay onsite, with your children and assist the age managers in the running of the evening.
➡️ Mud is going to be inevitable for some time, you have been warned 🙂
➡️ Our Canteen Manager Kris Butler is so excited about the start of the new Stormers season, he and his team are doing a free sausage sizzle for all of Stormers athletes for this first session! Parents, siblings and friends – sausages available to purchase, we take cash and card.
➡️  Session Plan for download and printing.
