Would like to congratulate the South Australian Little Athletics Association and Athletics SA organisers and all the members involved in helping all the athletes at the SA Athletics Academy that was offered to my daughter and many other athletes. Such a wonderful program that enabled my daughter to learn the basics and correct ways of doing their chosen athletic field, coaches were very encouraging and it was great meeting new friends with the same passion. She has certainly left the academy knowing so much more and already putting the steps into practice to enable her to do each event to the fullest.

I would like to say a massive thank you again to everyone involved in this amazing program. To each volunteer giving up their time for the athletes to come and learn these skills is an incredible credit to them. My daughter has really enjoyed the last two years doing Academy. She has improved in her skills and has made some friendships with some kids that she looks forward to seeing when we come up from the country (it’s just a pity we live so far away!). Again I’d like to say thank you to all the coaches, especially the throw ones as that’s my daughters favourite events and the only ones she did the whole Academy, for their time and patience with the kids. Now, to practice what’s she’s learnt this year at this seasons Little Aths!!
