Our Junior Athlete mentor program features a dedicated team of 12 Junior Coaches who work with our Tiny Tots, and Under 6 to Under 8 age groups to assist them every Saturday morning (from 08:30am) in Throwing, Running and Jumping.
Each Age Group is assigned Junior Coaches to show our young Tigers the finer points of little athletics. Our Coaches are all highly skilled senior athletes themselves with experience at National and State level, some of whom are current State and Ginninderra Record Holders.
Younger Athletes receive friendly advice targeted at their age. Instruction includes specific event warming up, tips and tricks on how to successfully participate as well as encouraging words of support, all delivered enthusiastically by our dedicated Junior Coaches.
The Mentors also help keep the exercise going for the full 60 minute session with plenty of praise and increase the excitement level just to keep the Tigers on their toes. They follow their assigned age group to every event that morning giving the kind of advice that kids want to hear in their own language.
The Junior Athlete mentor program is overseen by an Athletics Australia accredited Senior Coach who is available to answer parent questions and assist with age groups when required.
