Bargara Little Athletics has started back after the season was suspended in March due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The Little Athletics Queensland State Championships were all set up to start on March 13-15 in Brisbane when the Prime Minister’s announcement came through.
The event was called off with athletes waiting in the stadium and others on their way to Brisbane.
It was very sad for our team of 15 athletes who had qualified and been training for this major event on our Little Athletics calendar.
We were due to start our 2020 season with a Come N Try day in March. We also missed several big planned fundraisers, but are thankful for our regular sponsors who have continued to support us through difficult times.
It has been a long wait, but finally under stage three of restrictions, we were able to recommence our season on Sunday, 12 July.
A big delay to our usual winter season, but we will run a shorter season and now go through until the end of October to give athletes the opportunity to get back to it.
We were very grateful to be successful in our application for a Queensland Government COVID Safe Active Clubs Kickstart Grant, which will assist with the costs associated with requirements such as signage, cleaning and hygiene.
Little Athletics is a sport that relies on parents and volunteers and our Bargara Club proudly promotes the Family, Fun, Fitness motto of Little Athletics Queensland
We are thankful to have many returning members and some new members who followed all procedures and protocols in order to get athletes back out on the track and field doing what they love best.
