The eight new coaches of the Mount Isa Athletics Club were put through their paces on Sunday afternoon when more than 40 budding athletes converged on Sunset Oval for a kid’s athletics competition.
The competition was the final part and assessment for Mount Isa’s eight new athletic coaches that had just completed the two day IAAF “Kids Athletics” coaching course which is reasonably new to Australia but already operational in over 70 countries worldwide. Kids Athletics is a game based competition which teaches the fundamentals of athletics. The Mount Isa kids got to try out a few of the events such as the F1 race track, X-hop, Squat Jump and Vortex while battling it out for points in an effort to rein supreme at the end of the day.

Mulgrave Athletics is revamping Relay Day.
This year Relay Day is being held during Queensland Week celebrations and in conjunction with this we are holding our annual event on Sunday 1st June 2014. It will still have the same carnival, fun and family atmosphere, but, added to that, we are now going to theme our Relay Day in conjunction with Queensland Day and with making a donation to a local charity. This year we have chosen ENCORE as the recipient of our donation. This is a Cairns based 8 week program of exercises, guest speakers, information and relaxation techniques offered for free to women who have gone through breast cancer. There will be members from Breastscreen and ENCORE at our carnival to hand out information.
