Masters Athletes are welcome to attend
We are pleased to announce that the 5 MAWA coaches will continue through the 2018/19 season, and that the schedule on the website has been updated, (see right sidebar).
This offers members a great opportunity to improve their skill level and bring their times down.
We have still not found a throws coach, but our throws official on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Glenn Bartlett, is always willing to offer coaching tips and advice.
Weight throw ECAC 22nd November
We have the patron’s trophy javelin this week, so in order to ensure we can get through that before it gets dark, the weight throw competition will commence at 5:45 sharp.

Work continues to develop the idea of a MAWA storeroom/clubroom at ECAC that was discussed at the AGM. The effort is focusing on a modular building that could be readily moved if Canning Council moved the track location in the future.

Sunday Programme 2019
Next year’s programme is now on the website. Sunday runners should use it to select their preferred helper dates. Remember that the earlier you renew, the more likely you are to get your preferred dates.
This newspost is to remind members of the arrangements we have with Athletics WA on registration and insurance. All MAWA members are registered with AWA which means you do not have to pay a registration fee to compete in AWA events. That registration gives our members the full benefits of the Athletics Australia insurance policy at all MAWA sanctioned events. This covers both public liability and personal accident. The attached gives full details of the coverage, and we suggest that all members read it:
