ESLAC Success at LANSW State Multi Event Championships

Little A’s is On. Friday March 12, 2021 2:00pm Just a note to reassure everyone that the predicted rain has not eventuated and Little A’s will be on this Friday and since there has been little to no rain today we expect to be able to run the full Event Series 2 program (see below for details).

Tiny Tot Trophies this Friday Night. As is our tradition, we have special Tiny Tot trophies made up to present this Friday. Our ESLAC trophy night (venue and date to be advised) is usually a bit overwhelming for the Tiny Tots so we get their trophies done on the last night of the season, which makes it a particularly special night for them.

Return Request for Age Champion Shields. To those Age Champions from the 2019/20 season that managed to collect their Age Champion Shields at the beginning of this season (apologies again to those who did not get a chance to collect their shields) can you please return them this Friday night. We will need to them back to get them updated with a new crop of Age Champions from the 2020/21 season.

State Multi Event Championship Success. Congratulations to our 3 medalists from the State Multi Event Championships held in Woolongong last weekend. Emmanuel Moros took out silver with 4,148 points in the U12 Boys and Capri Vincent on 4,595 points and Marnie Laurence on 4,588 points (that is sooo close!) took out silver and bronze in the U9 Girls. It was an outstanding performance by these athletes and the whole ESLAC team in this challenging but fun Little Athletics event.

Hurdles, Walks and Javelin this Friday March 12th. This Friday March 12th we will be running Event Series 2 which sees the Tots through U7s run 70m, the U6s and U8s run the 100m and the U8s through U17s running the straight hurdles. There are Walks for the U9s, U10s and U11s while the U12s to U17s run a 400m and the U7s take on the 500m event. You can print a copy of the ESLAC Event Series 2 Mar 12, 2021 and the ESLAC ES Marks Event Locations Map Sep 19, 2018 and bring them with you on Friday night so that you know what is scheduled for your age group and where you can find your group at any time.

Barbeque Help Required. The barbeque fuels the families of ESLAC as well as the ESLAC bank balance and it has been doing a brilliant job on both counts this season. But the barbeque needs volunteers to run smoothly so, if you nominated as a barbeque volunteer on your parental obligations form, please see Vanessa at the barbeque to help out, the earlier the better.

Record Representation at the State Championships for ESLAC Athletes. Congratulations again to the 47 athletes that have made it all the way through to the State Championships this year. We thought we had a good year last year with 39 athletes who qualified for the State Championships but that figure has been well and truly surpassed this year with a giant contingent totalling 47 athletes making it through to State. To see the athletes who are competing for Eastern Suburbs and their events please download copies of the ESLAC State Reps 2021 U9-U12 and the ESLAC State Reps 2021 U13-U17.

Record ESLAC Representation at LANSW State Championships for 2020/21

State Multi-Event Championships this Weekend. This weekend ESLAC has 12 athletes competing in the State Multi-Event Championships at Beaton Park in Woolongong.  Athletes competing in the LANSW Multi-Event Championships compete in a number of events (it is the Little Athletics version of the Heptathlon or the Decathlon events from the Olympics) and are awarded points for their performance in each event. The better your performance in an event the higher your points score. All athletes in an age group compete in the same set of events and the overall highest points earner is the multi-event champion for each age group. Emma Laurence has generously agreed to be the ESLAC Multi-Event Team Manager this year so please send a reply to this email if you would like her contact details.

No Age Champion Points this Friday. Because some of our best and brightest will be away at the State Multi-Event Championships this weekend, there will be no Age Champion points awarded this Friday. This will ensure none of our Multi-Event athletes are disadvantaged in the tight tussles going on in some age groups for this season’s Age Championship awards.

Tiny Tot Trophies Next Friday Night. Next Friday night will be our last regular competition night for the season and will also be the night that the Tiny Tot athletes receive their season trophies. So make sure you bring your Tiny Tot along next week for their special night. Since we have 2 weekends of State Championships this season which take us right up until the end of the school term, the rest of our ESLAC athletes will have to wait until after the school holidays to receive their awards and trophies at our ESLAC Trophy Night (venue and date TBA).

Extra Straight Hurdles being run this Friday night. Since we have such great representation in the sprint hurdles events at the State Championships this season and because our last hurdles night was cancelled, we are setting up hurdles on the back straight at 6:45pm, 60m Hurdles first and then 80/90/100 and 110m Hurdles after the U9s and U10s have competed their 100m events.

Record Representation at the State Championships for ESLAC Athletes. Congratulations again to the 47 athletes that have made it all the way through to the State Championships this year. We thought we had a good year last year with 39 athletes who qualified for the State Championships but that figure has been well and truly surpassed this year with a giant contingent totalling 47 athletes making it through to State.

100m, 400m and 200m/300m Hurdles this Friday January 22nd. This Friday March 5th we will run  Event Series 1 which sees the Tots run the 50m, the U6s and U7s run a 50m/100m combination, while the U8s to U17s will compete in the 100m and 400m events. The U12s to U17s will also compete in the 200m/300m Hurdles Events. You can print or download the ESLAC Event Series 1 March 5, 2021 and the ESLAC ES Marks Event Locations Map Sep 19, 2019 and bring them with you on Friday night so that you know what is scheduled for your age group and where you can find your group at any time.

Club Captains for the 2021/22 Season. ESLAC is very happy and proud to announce that Max Wende and Lara Roets have been selected as ESLAC Male and Female Club Captains for the 2021/22 season. ESLAC is reinstating the positions of Club Captains after a long absence to recognise the contribution of our most senior athletes and to offer our younger athletes a chance to aspire to attaining what we are sure will be a very sort after positions into the future. Both Max and Lara have been with ESLAC many many years and have contributed to the club by representing ESLAC at many Regional and State Championships and not only bagging a great haul of medals for ESLAC but also for displaying exemplary conduct and sportsmanship at all times. In more recent times Max has proved to be a dab hand at the barbeque and Lara has been working tirelessly behind the scenes with setup and packup and as a stand in Age Manager for the younger age groups. Congratulations Max and Lara, we hope you have a great 2021/22 season as ESLAC Club Captains!

ESLAC Little A’s CANCELLED Friday February 19th

Friday Feb 19, 2021
    PREDICTED RAIN, SORRY!

The Bureau of Meteorology has predicted rain all afternoon at ES Marks for Friday the 19th of February.

So due to predicted bad weather we have decided:

  • ESLAC Little A’s Cancelled for Friday February 19th
  • Age Championship points cancelled for Friday February 19th (you will not be disadvantaged on trophy night if you don’t run this Friday at ESLAC Little A’s)
  • No barbeque
  • 5:30pm to 6:30pm Training for State Athletes
  • 6:30pm to 7:30 Front straight and circular track will be set up with timing gates for athletes trying to qualify for the State championships.

While we know that weather forecasts are not perfect and there is a chance that things will be better than predicted, we have decided that, on balance, it is better for our ESLAC families if we cancel the main ESLAC Little A’s competition but keep the track open for training for State athletes and to give our Senior athletes their last chance to set a qualifying mark for the State Youth Championships before nominations close this Sunday the 21st of Feb at 5pm. This Friday is scheduled to be Event Series 5 which is a hurdles night and our last washout was also hurdles night, so it is important that we give athletes one last chance to qualify for hurdles for State.

U9 to U12 Regional Team Does ESLAC Proud

U9 to U12 Regional Team Does ESLAC Proud. We had a great performance last weekend from ESLAC Athletes in the Region 8 Littles State Qualifying Meet, with ESLAC athletes seeming to featuring in nearly every final and a ton of Personal Best performances. ESLAC has 15 athletes who have directly qualified for the Littles State Championships and many many others who are awaiting results from the other Qualifying Meets to see if they make it through to State on the basis of times/heights/distances compared to other Regions. A highlight for the carnival was the ESLAC Girls Relay team of Marnie Laurence U9, Venus Kelly U12, Aria Jensen U10 and Marli Mayne U11 who emulated the boys from 2020 with a great win in one of the premier events of the meet. For more details please see the ESLAC 2021 Regional Wrap Up by our President Drew Richardson, download the Region 8 State Littles Qualifying Meet Results and keep an eye on the Results from other Regions if you are following athletes hoping to qualify for State.
