Zone Carnival This Weekend Sat 7th & Sun 8th of December

Zone Carnival this Weekend. Each year ESLAC athletes from ages U7 to U17 are invited to participate in the Inner City Zone Carnival held at our home track of ES Marks Athletics Field on Saturday the 7th and Sunday the 8th of December. It costs $20 to nominate for the Zone Carnival and the parent/carer of each entrant is expected to volunteer for 2 hours as a helper or pay a $50 non-volunteer levy. U7 to U11 athletes can enter a maximum of 4 events each and U12 to U17 athletes can enter a maximum of 6 events each. Our Zone, the Inner City Zone, is made up of 8 clubs and is one of the strongest Zones in Australia. Each of the 7 clubs can enter a maximum of 5 athletes in each event for the U7 to U11 age groups (there is no limit on Club entries for U12 to U17 athletes), so entries for U7 to U11 are competitive and the final say on who will represent ESLAC is based on Friday night events results as judged by the ESLAC Committee.

ESLAC Zone Team. The ESLAC Zone Team has been announced. It comprises 142 athletes competing in 498 events. Please download a copy of the ESLAC 2019 Zone Team with Events V2 to see who has made the team and the events in which they are competing.

2019 Zone Program. The 2019 Zone program has gone through a couple of iterations with the first version published being updated to fix an error in double listing the 100m finals for some age groups. The program has also been updated to combine the following age groups in the field events where the numbers of entries has made that practical:

  • Combined HJ for U15 and U17 girls to be held at 9:45 on Saturday
  • Combined Shot put for U14 and U15 girls to be held at 12:00 on Sunday
  • Combined U15 and U17 Javelin boys to be held at 2:30 on Saturday
  • Combined U15 and U17 Javelin girls to be held at 2:30 on Sunday

Please download a copy of the 2019 Inner City Zone Program V2 for all the information on this year’s Zone Carnival or alternatively just download the extracts that you need (formatting is slightly different but the information is the same as in the main program):

Zone Volunteer Roster. Thanks to all those who have volunteered to help out at Zone. Having volunteered, it is extremely important that you turn up on time for your selected duty. Events simply cannot be run properly if insufficient volunteers are present. If you have problems with being available for your volunteer slot then go to our help desk to see if they can arrange a swap or (this is often the best option) pay the $50 non volunteer levy by Direct Debit to: Eastern Suburbs Little Athletics BSB 012241 Account Number 254095775 and let us know as soon as possible (email to eslac1@outlook.com) so we can get some helpers to take your place.

ESLAC Runs the Discus events at the Zone Carnival which involves Discus 1 (the main discus cage on the inner track) and Discus 2 which is set up beyond the back fence of ES Marks near the main straight 100m start line. To check what day/time/location (Discus 1 or 2) you are required please download the volunteer rosters here:

It’s Our Last Little A’s for 2019!

It’s Our Last ESLAC Little A’s for 20019. This Friday November 29th is our last Little A’s meet for 2019. Next Friday December 6th we will be setting up for the Zone Carnival to be held next weekend on Saturday the 7th and Sunday the 8th of December. After that we have a break from Little Athletics while our athletes, parents and carers as well as our ESLAC committee take a Christmas/New Year break but we will be back in action at ES Marks on Friday January 24th to start the 2nd half of our 2019/20 season. You can download a copy of the ESLAC 2019_20 Calendar September 26, 2019 to check out all our season dates.

Hoping for a Visitor This Friday. Drew Richardson our ESLAC President has sent out a letter to a very special person who normally lives at the North Pole (a long way from Sydney). He explained to this person that children who do Little Athletics are often very well behaved especially at ESLAC where every Friday night we usually get hundreds of PBs (personal bests) because ESLAC athletes try so hard to always do their best. Drew told this person we are all very impressed by our ESLAC athletes and perhaps they deserve something special around Christmas time. Lets hope his letter does the trick for this Friday night!

ESLAC Zone Entries Submitted. ESLAC has submitted our entries for the 2019 Zone Carnival next weekend (Dec 7th and 8th) with 138 ESLAC athletes set to compete in 484 events. Last year Eastern Suburbs did not enter the largest team at Zone but we were still crowned Zone Champions because ESLAC athletes gained more points in finals than any other club at Zone. Since we are one of the strongest Zones in NSW that was a fantastic achievement. After ESLAC’s stellar performance at the State Relay Championships this season we are hoping for big things again from this year’s Zone team. GO ESLAC!

200m and Javelin this Friday October 18th. This Friday we are running Event Series 6 with the U10 – U17 age groups running the 200m/800m combination while the U7 – U9 will run a 70m/200m combination and the Tots – U6 will run 50m and 70m. The U11 – U17 age groups will also get to throw the Javelin starting at 8pm. You can print copies (or download copies to your phone) of the ESLAC Event Series 6 Nov 29, 2019 the Event Series 6 Program List Nov 29, 2019 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.

State Championships Event List Matrix Released.

Be optimistic and take a look at the 2020 State program — MATRIX OF EVENTS before you select your events for Zone.

Hurdles, Walks and Javelin this Friday November 1st

Air Quality Guidelines. Little Athletics NSW has issued a reminder to all Little Athletics Centres about our policy with regards to air quality. As air quality deteriorates the events that involve a high amount of aerobic exertion will be cancelled. For our program tonight (we are running Event Series 2) that would mean that a decision about running the 500m pack start for the U7s and the walks events for the U9s, U10s and U11s will be made when conditions are assessed at around 6:30pm. However, with the forecast of a quite strong onshore breeze for tonight we are hoping the smoke haze will clear and the program will go ahead as is.

Age Managers Meeting. Could all age managers please see our Club President, Drew Richardson, on the infield opposite the barbeque at 5:45pm for an update on the LANSW State Relay Championships and our Air Quality Policy procedures.

State Relays Championships Coming Up. ESLAC has entered 31 teams in the NSW State Relay Championships being held on Saturday November 16th for the U8-U11 age groups (Junior Day) and Sunday November 17th for the U12-U17 age groups (Senior Day). The relay team selectors have some provisional teams, but if you wish to be considered please ensure you compete in the 100 metres (we have unofficially added extra 100m races to the schedule) by going over to the back straight after 7pm. Please note that the selectors will take recent times, previous performances and relay change proficiency into account when selecting teams.

Hurdles, Walks and Javelin this Friday November 1st. Since our last straight hurdles night was cancelled due to threatening weather this will be the first time the U11 and U12 age groups get to run the hurdles over 80m. These age groups used to run 60m hurdles but LANSW has changed the event specifications from this season. This Friday November 1st we will be running Event Series 2 which sees the Tots through U7s run 70m, the U6s through U9s 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 will also run the 400m. You can print copies of the ESLAC Event Series 2 Nov 1, 2019 and the Event Series 2 Program List Nov 1, 2019 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.

A Visit from the Centennial Park Ranger. We had a “friendly” visit from the Centennial Park ranger last week and he chastised us for several transgressions of the many, many rules we must follow. Of concern to our ESLAC athletes, parents and carers is that we need to heed the parking signs and we were also reminded that ES Marks is a strictly “no dogs” venue. It’s important that we take care on these issues because we are expecting another visit this week and we have been warned that fines will be issued.

Age Managers Meeting. Could all age managers please see our Club President Drew Richardson on the infield opposite the barbeque at 5:45pm for an update on the LANSW State Relay Championships.

ESLAC Club Champions Points System. At Eastern Suburbs Little Athletics your event results count towards a points tally that is used to award trophies, event champions, age group champions and even an overall club champion at our end of the season trophy night. As you have probably seen on our ESLAC Results Page all the times/performances for an event are aggregated for each age group and the overall best performances are ranked. We award competition points on this aggregated ranking with 6 points going to the 1st ranked athlete, 5 points to the 2nd ranked athlete, down to the 6th ranked athlete who receives 1 competition point. We also award points for attending a meet, participating in an event and achieving a PB (personal best) performance. Please see the ESLAC Club Champions Points System page on our web site for more information.

Registrations are Still Open. Please let your friends know that, even though the season has started, registrations for the 2019_20 season are still open.

Friday October 11th ESLAC Little Athletics Cancelled

Friday October 11th ESLAC Little Athletics Cancelled. The Weather Bureau is predicting steady rain tomorrow the 11th of October so we have taken the unusual step of CANCELLING tomorrow afternoon’s ESLAC Little Athletics meet.

We would normally not rely on a forecast but wait to see the weather on the day before cancelling an ESLAC meet but because we have many people planning to come back from holidays specially for Little Athletics tomorrow we decided we should give as much notice as possible to allow people to change their plans.

It’s always disappointing to cancel a Little A’s meet but we look forward to seeing everyone back at ES Marks on Friday the 18th of October when we will be running Event Series 6.

Plenty of New Member Sign Ups. We have lots of Eastern Suburbs families considering what sport will be best for the new school term that starts in a few weeks time. Well the answer is Little Athletics of course! That is why we see lots of new members signing up in early October so please spread the word about Eastern Suburbs Little Athletics at your school or your winter sports club, you can even download a copy of the ESLAC Banner Flyer or the ESLAC Quarter Page Flyer and put it in your school or local newsletter.

Registration. To see all the details about signing up for the Little Athletics Season please visit the ESLAC Registration Page. There will be lots of new registrations to get through on our return to ES Marks on Friday October 11th, so please come early if you don’t yet have your registration pack. There will be one queue for returning members and another for new members. Please download your Working with Children Declaration LANSW 2019 and ESLAC Parental Obligations Aug 1, 2016 forms and fill them in before handing them in at the registration desk under the south east corner of the grandstand as you enter ES Marks. New members will also need to show a proof of age document (copy of passport, birth certificate or student card are preferred) for each athlete being registered, if you are a new member and don’t have a proof of age document, you will not be able to pick up your registration pack.
