Chance for local athletes to meet champion netballer
OUR future Clarence Valley athletes have the chance to become a little star and meet a NSW sporting icon at the same time.
In conjunction with partner Jetstar, Little Athletics Australia have announced the Little Jetstars competition, offering athletes from the Lower Clarence and Grafton Little Athletics clubs to meet GWS Giants netballer Kimberlee Green.
To enter the Little Jetstars competition, registered Little Athletics participants can head to www.littlejetstars.com.au and describe in 25 words or less, how Little Athletics will help them become a big hero.
The ultimate search for Australia's most passionate young athletes, the Little Jetstars competition celebrates good sportsmanship and dedication amongst Jetstar Little Athletics Australia participants with five lucky winners receiving an exclusive training session for them and 15 friends, led by one of Australia's most well-known athletes - a Jetstar "Big Hero”.
Having each participated in Little Athletics growing up, Kimberlee Green is part of an elite group of Australian athletes who have been chosen as Jetstar "Big Heroes” to lead the charge at training sessions all over the country.
Kimberlee Green is really excited to be involved in the Little Jetstars program and to get back to her grass roots where it all began.
"Little Athletics holds very fond memories for me and is such a great start for any kid who loves sport,” said Green.
"I had a lot of fun in my days at St George Little Athletics club and it was a great excuse to stay healthy and get involved in the community from a young age! I'm really excited to be part of the Little Jetstars program and can't wait to have a run around with the kids.”
The first of five Little Jetstars competition winners will be announced at the beginning of November and the remaining winners announced monthly through to March.
With more than 100,000 participants across 540 centres, Jetstar Little Athletics Australia is a uniquely Australian program based on track and field events that is open to kids between 5 and 15 years.
The Little Jetstars competition is now open, with entries closing on February 28, 2017.
