AWARDS & RECOGNITION
At Craigieburn Little Athletics we want to reward our athletes for all their accomplishments throughout the season. We want to recognise and celebrate their participation in our sport, improvements, outstanding performances, dedication and sportsmanship. All awards are presented to athletes at our end of season celebration!
The prestigious Coaches Award is presented to 5 athletes who the coaches believe have shown exceptional improvement, 100% effort at training, a willingness to listen and learn, adhere to our Codes of Conduct and who show great sportsmanship.
To be eligible, athletes must regularly attend training.
Little athletics is all about improving. A trophy is awarded to the female and male with the most Personal Bests for the season.
Achieving a Centre Record is a great achievement! Each athlete who equals or breaks a Centre Record will be presented with a certificate on a competition day.
These awards recognise our athletes' performances in all track and field events. Trophies are presented to the male and female Champion and Runner-Up in the categories of Junior Athlete (U6 & U7), Intermediate Athlete (U8 to U11) and Senior Athlete (U12 to U16). These awards are based on a points system calculated on attendance, participation, PBs and performance.
This most esteemed award is presented to one athlete who has shown continuous and exceptional improvement throughout the season.
Athletes who have been members for 5, 7 and 10 consecutive years are awarded special trophies and certificates as an appreciation for their dedication and commitment to the club.
Athletes are presented with a trophy to celebrate their achievements throughout the season. To be eligible athletes must have achieved a minimum attendance rate of 75% from the date of becoming a member. Special consideration is given in circumstances where it was not possible for athletes to meet this criteria (e.g illness, holidays, etc)
