It has proven very difficult to select any one single highlight from the Mount Isa Athletic Clubs performances at the ANQ Championships in Townsville last weekend. The team of 36 returned with 2 Championship Records, the Junior Boy and Girl Points Champions, 16 Club Records, 5 new Development Squad Qualifiers, 113 placings and 118 PB’s from 270 events.
It was obvious that the team was in for a good weekend when Kale “Blackflash” Johnson led out with a souring 7.15m Long Jump Club Record early Friday night. While around the same time 12 year old Conor Bowden was setting a new Championship Record for the 200m Hurdles. Mitchell Hujanen at this point had already added a metre to the 15 year Mens Isa Club Record with a throw of 36.58m in Hammer and Barbara Baker was about to improve the 40 – 44 year Womens 1500m Walk Club Record.
Definite contenders for the highlight of the Championships were when 10 year old Denzil Perkins and 11 year old Michelle Bracs were announced as the Junior Male and Female Points Champions. Denzil had amassed 6 gold and 2 bronze medals, 1 Meet Record, 5 Club Records and 5 personal bests from 9 events. Similarly Michelle’s haul was 3 gold, 4 silver and 1 bronze, 1 Club Record and 4 PB’s from 8 events.
Athletics North Queensland in conjunction with Charters Towers Athletics Club will be holding a level one coaching course in Charters Towers on the 1st of November.

This is the entry level for all Accredited Athletic Coaches. The fundamental skills of running, jumping & throwing are introduced as well as exploring how to engage athletes in long term participation and how to coach skills to beginner athletes.
The course includes one day of face to face training (8 hours) as well as the online Beginning Coach General Principles course. This qualification is certified by the Australian Sports Commission and allows participants to be nationally accredited as a community coach which is transferable to other sports engaging in the community coach program.
After completing the Level 1 Community Athletics Coach course, 30 hours of coaching needs to be undertaken prior to entering Level 2 Intermediate Club Coach.
Athletics North Queensland in conjunction with Athletics Australia will be holding a Level 1 Community Coaching Course in Mackay on the 8th of November. The course will be held in the Slade Point region (venue to be advised). The coaching course is part of the Athletics for the Outback program being run in North Queensland which is aimed at increasing participation of Indigenous Australians in Athletics. This course will be free to attend but as there is a limit to the number of participants, Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islanders will have first preference. To register for this course click here. Once you have filled out the online registration you will be contacted with more information closer to the date.
For more information on the course, click here or contact the ANQ office on (07) 4721 4998. Registrations close midnight on the 4th of November.
Registrations are now open for the Get Active Queensland Accreditation Program being held in Townsville on the 19th and 20th of October 2014. Athletics part A will be held on Sunday the 19th and Part B will be held on Monday the 20th.
The GAQAP provides teachers, school sport volunteers, tertiary and senior secondary school students throughout Queensland with FREE training that can ultimately lead to recognised accreditation in coaching.
The courses are FREE to attend on the day. Some courses require completion of assessment tasks for the awarding of formal accreditation. Fees for accreditation may apply for non-school sport volunteers. Registration is limited to one sport only as each course is approximately 6 hours in length.
Registrations close: Friday 3 October 2014
