President Report

It is with enthusiasm and pride that I reflect on the successes of the Kewdale Little Athletics Club this past year. The triumphs we have had both in the field of play and off the track administratively are now ensuring that a significant number of our athletes are enjoying the benefits of our program in various formats undertaken by our club.

A revitalised spirit of cooperation between Committee, parents, athletes and the Belmont Little Athletic Centre (BLAC) has blossomed over the past twelve months. I believe in part this is due to the introduction of new training shirts and a club banner, provided by David O’Heare from Café2U, as their purpose was to encourage a sense of belonging and unite amongst athletes and our families. It also displayed to other centre Clubs a social togetherness and warm fellowship exists at Kewdale, as that would exist in a cheerful family.

Throughout this year, members and other Club and Centre officials have commented and acknowledge that there is a clear indication attitudes have changed around the Club for the better and this has created a sense collectiveness. This was my primary

focus from day one and I wish to thank the Committee for backing this vision.

All the success this year could not have been achieved without Coaches Brad Gray, Steeve Howes and Paula Pereira-Ninyett. This excellent group of diverse and multi-skilled individuals, all have a passion for athletics and performing their duties on a voluntary basis. We are very fortunate indeed to have such an enthusiastic and competent individuals bringing their

experience and unique characteristic to the Club. Together they have raised the bar even higher for our athletes. I contend they deserve extra special recognition for their leadership and time and energy that they gave to our athletes to prepare for competition.

To my right and left hands and my back support; Kelly Taylor, Joanne Gray, Karen Winterburn, Kelly Ninyett and Liz and Greg O’Meara thank you for your much-appreciated advice, counsel and support. You all embedded the vision of fun and harmony into the Club. I have been impressed with your strong commitmentto the Club and this gave me confidence in our decision-making during the year. For me, working closely with you has been an extremely positive and rewarding experience. I believe it has been vicariously through these

types of relationships that has witnessed the KLAC morph from a Club to a family.

As a not-for-profit organisation we fiscally operator through the generosity of others. The support and patronise from BLAC clubs and KLAC members to our fundraisers was significantly higher than previous years. This can only occur with the backing and support of sponsors, local businesses and our great members; to whom I send a big thank you.

There has been a significant amount of work occurring in the background this years with sponsors and local industry and I wish thank Wayne Ninyett for his efforts in creating new sponsorships and donations from a variety of organisations. The Finance Report highlights a significant increase to our bottom line as a direct results of these efforts.

The Committee has continued its responsibilities to athletics and worked in close association with the BLAC executive. The relationship between the two groups continues to strengthen and I commend the very hardworking BLAC staff for their tireless work in keeping the wheels in motion toward achieving common goals.

Last but not least; to our wonderful

Athletes. In the private sector they

measure success through shareholder

wealth. In public sector on value

delivered. At KLAC we measure

success from the number smiles and

volume of laughter. I am happy to report

the smile counter and sound level meter

both broke due to being over worked

this year. It is also measured by your

attendance and enjoyment, not just

winning and personal bests.

We’ve seen great progress over the last

year. I wish you all unlimited success

for the season 2015/16 and ask that as

an athletics community we work

together in a positive spirit of harmony,

to improve the sport of track and field

for our local community. I trust the new

committee will continue to build upon

the successes of season 2014/15.

Records and Rankings

Each event an athlete competes in is added up and when the athlete reaches 100, 200, 300, 400 or 500 events they receive a badge for the milestone. The intention is to remind athletes they are on a journey and that they have reached another milestone. Participation and doing your best is more important than winning at Kewdale. No other Centre recognise these milestones.

The following represents achievements by our athletes in 2014/15.

In addition to these achievements our athletes broke twenty nine (29) Kewdale Records, competed in 2065 events and achieved 1114 personal bests. These PBs represents an increase of 4.8%, which is an exceptional effort considering our membership decreased by 48% from 64 members in 2013/14 to 43 this year. This outstanding effort has to be contributed to our athletes drive to achieve and an outstanding coaching effort.

Finally, our total clubs points equated to 11905 an increase of 31% up from 9077 total points in 2013/14. Need we say any more about how successful our athletes were in 2014/15. Well done to all.

Registrar's Report

I am pleased to report forty three (43) athletes registered for the 2014-2015 season. Despite a smaller number of registrations in comparison to previous years and at the bottom of the Olympic year trough, Kewdale Little Athletics Club continued to have a core of dedicated athletes and parent volunteers.

Table 1 details distribution of our athletes by age group. This season the genders were more balanced than previous years with boys previously outnumbering our girls. The biggest age groups were the under 7, 10 and 12’s, the under 15-17 athletes continue to be underrepresented.

Olympic years are highlighted in yellow. There tends to be more interest and athlete registrations during Olympic years.

Table 3 and the accompanying graph, compare the retention of existing athletes versus the recruitment of new athletes. Kewdale LAC has retained 29 of its previous 61 athletes which is just less than half. The table and graph illustrate that older athletes are more likely to remain with their club once registered.

A future challenge for the Club will be to retain their older athletes whilst marketing the benefits of our Club to younger athletes. Strategies to support younger athletes and their parents to remain in the sport will need consideration.

Club Managers Report

Well, what can I say, a year of being Manager for the Kewdale Little Athletics Club. Before I start I want to say a huge thanks to my family for supporting me through this year. The question was asked, “why do you take on these positions”? After this year I can say, “It’s for all those kids that come every week to training and competition”. You may not achieve PB’s but they have smiles on their faces just for being here.

Once I got to know everyone and if I don’t know you; I do sincerely apologise. The he job was easier than I thought because of the support of everyone, the committee, coaches, officials, parents, and athletes this year saw many events accomplished by our little club and the rostering system was easy for competition day. Some days did see me twist a few arms and rip off a few legs but no harm was done; I hope?

We had athletes compete in the Teams Events at WA stadium, State Relays and Field Events, Multi-event at Gosnells, Christmas Gift Runners and the Zones and State Events in March. And we had a parent team in the Christmas Gift Relay thank you Dave, Anna, Tanya and Geoff.

Gift Relay – thank you Dave, Anna, Tanya and Geoff. To help these athletes learn new

To help these athletes learn new skills a huge thankyou to our coaches, Brad, Paula and Steeve. Also the organisation of Glen, Sandra and Cathy throughout the season gave a little bit of expertise into the trainings. Unfortunately we ended up cancelling a few of our training sessions later in the season due to uncontrollable weather predictions, but the athlete’s health and safety comes first.

The well organised fundraisers, saw the club raise healthy funds for the club to use where necessary. Mark and Wayne you have done an amazing job behind the scene with club sponsors, Kassems, John Hughes, The Coffee Guy, IGA and the Belmont Professionals.

Before I finish I must say a huge thank you to Greg O’Meara my computer brain.

Without you half the Facebook and communication with our families would

not have happened.

So to the athlete’s, take care in the off season, look after your parents and

guardians and we will see you back here at the end of the year for another season.

Senior Coach

I hope all the athletes and parents enjoyed the season, a very long and hot one, in a new look Kewdale club where the athletes and parents have been fantastic. We a very high Personal Best count and numerous Kewdale records broken, not to mention a very high strike rate in the BLAC awards considering the size of our club. Our only downfall was our parent relay team who may need a little more training.

BEFORE AFTER
BEFORE
AFTER

During the season I have had the opportunity to coach all the athletes at one time or another. I have been very impressed not only by their ability but some wonderful personalities and lovely children.

To my senior group, I thought I had scared you all off in the first week due to the hard work ethic I employ. But to your credit you all did yourselves proud by sticking with it; you’re are a great bunch.

I have seen so much improvement through the year, well done to all of you. Remember hard work means great results not just as an athlete but in everything you do in life and you all have thoroughly deserved all the success this season.

Thanks to the other coaches Paula and Steeve and to all the parent helpers during training.

Finally, Mark and KT (Kelly Taylor) and the rest of the committee; job well done, you have the club in good shape for next year.

I short message to say it has been a good year coaching the 6-8 year olds. As you

can imagine as parents it was challenging at times, but very rewarding. The athletes

have all improved and most rewarding was witnessing the increase of PB's.

I couldn't have done the coaching it without the help of Jeff, Daniel and David and the numerous of other parents who jumped into assist. The training was also well

programmed this as we considered the weekly program and we trained for those events to get all the athletes ready for Saturday competition.

Delegates Report

P a g e | 14 Delegates Report It is the responsibility of the club delegate

It is the responsibility of the club delegate to attend the Executive and Delegates meetings once a month. These meetings can be very involved (often over 3+ hours) and general contains information relevant to our club. More often than not it is more about what the BLAC Executive is doing as a whole to improve conditions for our athletes. This year the focus has been on providing better facilities and equipment.

As club delegate, our role was more as an ‘interested onlooker. More often than not, the juicystuff was behind closed doors and decided by the Executive which did not require any input from the club delegates. As such we had fairly limited involvement at these BLAC meetings.

Liz would like to take this opportunity on behalf of Greg, Kate and herself to thank the club for their patience and understanding during Kate’s illness. Whilst we have not been in attendance at Kewdale, Greg continued his role as Chief Track Umpire and Timing under the banner of Belmont though performed the function as a Kewdale parent.

We are very proud to be part of the Kewdale family and all parents and athletes should be as well.

Equipment Report

P a g e | 15 Equipment Report The equipment has been brilliantly looked after by

The equipment has been brilliantly looked after by the coaches, parents and athletes this season. We had a few issues in the first half of the season with BLAC not being happy with how the equipment was left at times. On those mentioned days Bradley Edwards and myself went and cleaned it up after most had left on a Saturday. Also there were some issues with the increase tents being taken out but that has all worked out and everyone was smiling once more.

For the second half of the season all the equipment was correctly packed away and there were no more tent incidents and other equipment issues, which was great. If we can continue to do this

throughout the next season it will support what is now a positive relationship with BLAC and make the new Equipment Officers that much easier. Not to say to the incumbent Equipment Officer the role difficult, just why make something hard when it doesnt have to be. Essentially we don’t want BLAC frowning upon us and not being happy with the equipment being messy in their shed.

After four (4) years of serving KLAC I will not be returning on the committee next season. I wish all the new committee members the best of luck and remember to have fun. At this point, Kate may not return either next season, though I will most probably continue as Chief Track Umpire (CTU) and may consider a role on the BLAC Committee. If I do continue as CTU I will be taking on the role as a KLAC volunteer, which means one less position to roster each week.

Many thanks to KLAC for four (4) years of fun and enjoyment. It is a fantastic club and I have made some great friends.
