Club Awards and Presentation Day
One of the aims of Little Athletics is to improve the athletic performance of every individual. Children are encouraged to look at their results each week and aim to improve their personal bests.
A points system is used to record athlete’s performance each week to determine overall age champions and is based on participation and achievement.
At the end of the season all points are collated in age groups and gender and the Centre gives out 1st, 2nd & 3rd place trophies for each group (U8–U16) from track events (70m, 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, hurdles and walks) and 1st, 2nd & 3rd place trophies for Field events (shot put, discus, javelin, long/high/triple jump.) Encouragement trophies and Participation awards (minimum 60%+ attendance) are also awarded.
All Under 6 and 7 athletes will receive a participation medal. Under 17 athletes who have attended the minimum centre requirements as stated by LAQ, will be recognised for their participation and contribution as ambassadors to the Centre via an individual plaque.
Certificates are awarded to all athletes showing their personal best performances in all events competed in throughout the season.
A trophy is awarded to the male and female athletes who have achieved the most personal best performances for the season.
Recognition of long service awards
Awards are presented in recognition of those athletes who have had 5 (or more) consecutive years competing at our centre.
Named in memory of committee member Steve Teasdale, who passed away in 2014. This prestigious perpetual Encouragement award is given to the female athlete who always gives 110%, participates in everything, participates with a smile and encourages and supports others to also perform and develop their skills to the best of their abilities. It is not given to the best athlete but to one who epitomises sportsmanship – that being a good sport is better than being good at sport.
Van Den Driest Perpetual Trophy
Named in honour of Joe van den Driest, life member of Doncaster Little Athletics. This prestigious perpetual Encouragement award is given to the male athlete who always gives 110%, participates in everything, participates with a smile and encourages and supports others to also perform and develop their skills to the best of their abilities. It is not given to the best athlete but to one who epitomises sportsmanship – that being a good sport is better than being good at sport.
