    Presentation Tonight

    In this issue....

    Good Morning NCLA Families,


    Just a reminder - our Presentation is tonight!  5.30pm at the Harness Club off Jackson St, Broadmeadow.

    On Griffiths Rd, heading from Newcastle turn Left at lights where Freddys Fishing is, then take the 2nd right (which is Jackson st). Drive straight and when the road veers to the right, go straight into the driveway in front of you and follow around to parking area.


    The Presentation is always a great night - a chance to celebrate the hard work of all our Athletes and Parents throughout the season.

    Sausage sizzle, drinks, fruit platter and yogurt bar all provided.  Come along and get your trophies and enjoy something to eat.  Please wear uniforms.


    See you there

    Hi everyone,

      Well, we've come to the end of another season, and as Janet has already said numerous times, we apologise for how disrupted this year has been.  We'd really like to to thank you all for your patience and tolerance while we tried to make the best of the long list of things that tried to de-rail us along the way - the un-availability of Newcastle Athletics Field, and then the drainage works at Alder park; not to mention the weather this summer, which always seemed to be either too hot or too wet!  So thanks again.


    Now we need to look forward to next year, and plan for a season that promises to be one of our best.   The re-launch of the Newcastle Athletics Field along with the Commonwealth Games at the Gold Coast should mean a heightened profile for athletics in Newcastle, and hopefully a corresponding increase in numbers for us.  With increased numbers comes the need to be more organised as a club.  There are many jobs that need to be done week-to-week, and at certain points throughout season, to ensure a smooth running club and a great experience for the kids:  setting up and packing away equipment, guidance and coaching in the various events, compiling and entering results, running the canteen, coordinating participation in zone and regional carnivals, organising the Christmas party and presentation night etc, etc.


    It's bad timing, but unfortunately all this coincides with us losing many members of the committee for next season: Janet who's been our fantastic president for several years, even though her children are no longer at the club; and Jane, Amanda, Shaun and Kym who after many great years of service to the club and committee, have all decided not to return next year.


    To be honest, without some more help, we're nearly at the point where we'll struggle to run the club at all next season.  As you know, Little Athletics relies on parents and volunteers to succeed, so I'd really like to appeal to all of you that if you feel like you can help Newcastle City Little Athletics to reach it's potential next year, and ensure a fun and rewarding experience for the kids, please come to the AGM which is to be held two nights after the Presentation Night on Wednesday 5th April - 7:00PM at Lowlands Bowling Club in Cooks Hill.  Committee involvement can be as big or as little as you feel comfortable with, but we'd really just like to form a core of parents and helpers who we know we can call on to help out during the season.


    If have any questions or would like to have a chat about any of this you can call me on 0457356924 or send me an email at


    Thanks and best regards,

    Crispin Lyne

    Vice President, on behalf of the NCLAC Committee
