Raymond Terrace Athletics Centre
Our Centre caters for athletes from 5yrs to Masters. At the moment, our oldest athlete is 75 years of age. We compete on Saturday mornings from the first Saturday in September till mid to late March. Athletes from U6 to U12 start at 8:15am with a 15 minute warm-up. Their competition begins at 8:30am. The U13 to Masters begin at 9am.
Our athletes range in ability from beginners to Australian representatives. We emphasise the Little Athletics motto of "Run For Fun", encouraging athletes to improve on their own performances.
We compete through school holidays except over the Christmas break when we usually have a 3 week break. This season we are having a 5 week break to allow us to topdress the field.
We hold an annual Pentathlon on the last Sunday of September; and an annual Wallaroo Fun Run on the 3rd Sunday of May. For both of these events, we have people travel from Sydney, Port Macquarie andSingleton to compete.
Our Centre is the venue for the annual Primary Schools Zone carnival. This season, we are also the venue for the little Athletics Port Hunter Zone Championships.
We have a synthetic surface on our long / triple jump run-ups; and our grass track is considered to be the best in the Hunter.
