Our annual Santa Sprints Christmas Party is on this Sunday 16th December, from 4-7pm.
The Santa Sprints is a handicap race over a maximum of 100m. This year we are holding two separate events - an U6-U11 competition and an U12-U16 competition. We hope this will encourage more of our older Athletes to attend.
In addition to the races there are fun activities such as Mum and Dad's Vortex Throw and Water Balloon Volleyball.
We might even have a Special Visitor later in the evening.
BYO Picnic dinner, chairs and blankets. The canteen will not be open.
If you can't get enough Aths before Christmas, the Doncaster LAC Open Day is on Saturday the 22nd December - well worth attending.
All Families, please note there is no session at Mentone this Saturday 15th December as we are off to the State Relay Championships.
