More youth look to develop roar in sport at Tiger Wests

AT least two members from Tiger Wests Little Athletics Centre at Wyatt Park, will compete in the HART Sport State Track and Field Championships – the culmination of the track and field competition season – at Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre in March.

Athletes in the age groups U9 through to U17, progress through to this event after qualifying from their Zone and Region Championships.
Tiger West President Peter Harper said the finals list was still being determined after six out of 61 members, made it to the regional championships across 11 events.
He said that although the club had seen a decline in the older age groups, there was a big increase in U6 members registered at the club.
“The track is looking so good and we’ve introduced new high jump mats and shot put circle stop boards,” he said.
“We are always after new members and helpers and work hard to provide a fun, safe place to learn and grow as young athletes.”
A fun, social and active program for girls and boys from the Tiger Cubs (four and five-year-olds), right through to 17-year-olds, Tiger Wests prides itself on providing an excellent facility for all levels and abilities.
From their centrally located home ground in Auburn, they draw families from surrounding suburbs.
Hart said that with Tiger Wests one of the smaller clubs around, it’s easier for trainers to spend more time teaching on a one-to-one basis.
“The results speak for themselves – all the effort pays off with competitive athletes, strong relationships and fun on Friday nights,” he said.
