From The Presidents Desk – 16/12/20

Hi everyone,

2020 has undoubtedly been challenging for us all. We have all experienced this differently on a personal level and dealt with it in our own way.

Lockdown was harder on some, whilst for others emerging from lockdown felt overwhelming. Yet through it all the human spirit battled and kept going.  It’s that human spirit that has kept us doing the things we love and look forward to each day and not be defeated. Coming back to Little Athletics is just one small but important step in feeling normal again.

Over the past few weeks, there have been many anxious and stressful moments, trying to get the season all backup and running with all the new rules and regulations.  Mistakes were made as we tried different things, but now, as we head into our last week before the Christmas break, it’s a good time to reflect on the fantastic job we have all done to get to this point and all the positive things in the past 2 months, in particular, not just getting the Little Athletics season going at Cranbourne but in our lives as a whole.

Things aren’t quite back to normal, but no with active cases in Victoria and an athletics season we didn’t think was possible a few months ago, it is definitely a great feeling!

So, on that note, let’s keep that feeling going as we head into the Christmas break and on the track. The Committee is truly grateful for all the help given over the past few weeks and let’s continue the positivity and keep showing our kindness to one another. It’s what differentiates us, and embodies our values of being a fun, family orientated, and inclusive Little Athletics club.

See you all on track this Saturday!
