When we practice


Our club operates on a strong basis of parental involvement. There are so many small and easy jobs for parents to help out with.

We really enjoy the fact that all of our children get to see the benefits of their parents helping out other children and getting benefit too.

Every Saturday (weather permitting) we are out at Chapman oval from 9:00am to around 12:00pm. Our schedule is usually finalised around the end of August, or early September  every year. As soon as it is ready, it can be found on our team calendar page. We also train on some weekday evenings. These are also scheduled in the calendar so that you can synchronise them up to your smart phone calendar App.

During the Saturday sessions, the size of your age group may vary from year to year as some age groups are extremely popular and may be split into to groups.

 

The Spiderback Gift


The Spiderback Gift is a handicap race with each age group representative starting time based on recorded to date season best times or fastest time on selected competition days for 100m (U6-7), 200m (U8) and 800m (U9-17). There are two races:

  • U6-8 200m;
  • U9-17 800m

At least two 100m, 200m or 800m times must be recorded by the Age Group representative and the winning time must be within 20% of that time.

The Spiderback Gift will start from either the 200m or 800m start and all representatives run either 200m or 800m through a modified track.
