A message from our Relay Coordinator - Angela Dickins
Greetings Keilor families!
With the new season upon - time to get the Team Keilor Relay team up and running for an exciting new season. Last year we finished up at the top of the medal tally - lets see how we go this year! All registered athletes from Under 9 to Under 16 is welcome to participate......I always say, the more the merrier!
Thank you to our coaches who have stepped up and volunteered their time. We are still looking for a few more coaches - please let me know if you are interested. Unfortunately - if we can't get coaches for teams, we will be unable to run that age group.
Our coaches this year are:
Under 9 - Zlaten & Adem Gec
Under 10 - Tim Golder
Under 11 Girls - Helen Vassiliou, sia Palamara & Yana Cini
Under 11 Boys - Tim Golder
Under 12 Girls - VACANT
Under 12 Boys - Steve Scodella
Under 13 Girls - Sophie Lloyd
Under 13 Boys - Steve Scodella
Under 14 Girls - VACANT
Under 14 Boys - VACANT
Under 15 - Tim Golder & Chris Mitrevski
Under 16 - Russell Cram
So if you are a parent on an Under 12 Girl or Under 14 Boy or Girl and you are interested in the coaching gig (or a couple of you would like to do it together) please let me know. I would hate the kids to have to miss out on such a fun event. It's actually one of the best events of the season - the one time your child will run as part of a team in Athletics.
