President’s Message


Shane Adams – 2019 / 2020 Centre President

Welcome to the 2019-20 season of Chelsea Little Athletics.

As the new Centre President, I look forward to welcoming you all back for what should be another fantastic season.

After the success of our 50th year celebrations last season, the Centre Committee has been busy in the off-season to ensure that we have another action-packed program this year.

Events such as the 12th consecutive Ray White Chelsea Gift in early December, our Relaython and the Bendigo Bank Medallion Day which will round out the season in late March, will help to ensure that all athletes have a fun and enjoyable experience throughout the 2019-20 season.

Athletes will also have the opportunity to represent Chelsea at a number of external events such as regional and state championships as well as having the chance to compete in team relay events.

To ensure that you stay up-to-date with all the events taking place, please keep an eye on our website and Facebook page which will be updated regularly with all our latest news and information.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our outgoing President Greg Russo, who over the last four seasons in the position has given great service, and has introduced many fantastic new initiatives.

We should also take the time to recognise the contribution our volunteers made last season to ensure that our 50th season celebrations were such a great success. The centre is in a very strong position and for that we are extremely grateful for all the hard work the committee continues to put in.

The Committee and I would also like to thank the ongoing support from all our sponsors.

Community sport relies heavily on the support of the local community, and we are grateful for all the ongoing support that we receive.

In closing, I hope that everyone has a fantastic season full of fun and enjoyment, and I look forward to seeing you all down at the track.

Enjoy your athletics & BE YOUR BEST

Shane Adams, October 2019
