A Message from the President

Welcome to Western Athletics and I hope that you enjoy what is shaping up as another exciting year for Western Athletics and its members.

We want you to have an enjoyable and productive time with the club and achieve your goals whether you are participating competitively, recreationally or socially. You will find a warm, helpful and friendly atmosphere at the club, with plenty of support from our coaches, athletes and supporters.

Western Athletics competes in Athletics Victoria competitions, in the winter Cross Country Road Racing and Walks competitions and in the summer Track and Field competitions. There are also specialist meets available and of course we have a large contingent who enjoy competing in the many fun runs and trail runs on offer.

The club logo indicates the individuality of athletics while, at the same time, denoting that we have a central point and that point is teamwork and team spirit, something that our club fosters to deliver the best possible experience for all of our members.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of our club and coaches, committee members and club helpers all work together to make Western Athletics a great club for all to enjoy. I ask that you respect all volunteers, thank them when you can and also help out when asked.

Once again welcome, great running, throwing, walking and jumping! I am confident you will enjoy your membership of Western Athletics.

Peter Cashin
