Emerald & District Athletics Aims:
· to provide an atmosphere where everyone, regardless of ability, will gain new skills,
enhance existing skills and have fun.
· to teach the basic skills of track and field events. Each athlete’s goal should
be in improving their personal best (PB). Parents can help by encouraging their
children, but at the same time remembering that they are our children, not professional
athletes. Places are not as important as personal gain.
