SA All Schools Games

Last weekend was busy at the track with Southern Athletic Club's junior athletes competing for their schools at the Viva SA All Schools Games.

It was difficult to pick them out sometimes in their unfamiliar school colours but we cheered them on all the same.

We saw some determined performances and plenty of PBs.  Club members picked up 3 bronze, 5 silver and 3 gold medals between them.

Congratulations to Cooper Rogers and Macey Coghlan on your first South Australian team selections.  They will be joined at the Australian All Schools Games in December by Angus Hincksman, Bradley Bruniges, Chloe Upton, Mathew Bruniges and Victoria Upton.

We also congratulate Angus (again!) and Silas Holmes on their SAPSASA team selection to represent South Australia at the Pacific School Games.

Full results and more photos from the SA All Schools games can be found here (thanks Jason)

New Weekly Intervals Session

A weekly interval session will be held every Monday for junior distance runners and recreational runners.  The session will rotate between Reynella East College, Aldinga Oval and Knox Park, starting at around 5:30 - keep your eye on Facebook or the training calendar below for details.

Free to club members.  All enquiries to Matt - 0415 883 117.

School Sports Awards

Congratulations to one of our newest Sharks - Angus Hincksman - who has been shortlisted as one of 3 finalists for the 2017 SA Primary School Sports Award.

Not only is Angus an awesome runner (multiple state team representative, national medalist and national age-group record holder), but he is also nominated for his achievements in swimming, surf life saving and football.

It's not all about medals & records though - more importantly, Angus has a great attitude, works hard on the track and enjoys his sport.

We're glad that you are now part of Southern Athletic Club and wish you well for the Sport SA Award finals on 24 November.

Strength & Conditioning for Rec Runners

If, like me, when you have an hour to spare you probably go for a run, right?  However, improving your strength and conditioning are vital to maintaining good running form, especially at the end of longer runs, and will reduce injury risk.

We will be starting strength and conditioning sessions in the next couple of weeks with a specific focus on the needs of recreational runners.  Sessions will be suitable for runners of all levels and tailored to consider individuals' weaknesses/imbalances and injury history.  Watch this space!
