Calling new CQ athletes to join

PROVIDING a friendly and encouraging atmosphere for athletes of all ages, Central Queensland Athletic Club Inc has been established for almost 20 years.

President Carolyn Johnson said the club welcomes athletes from as young as four years and over to enjoy the activities on offer including running, throwing and jumping athletic events.

With currently more than 80 members in the club, Central Queensland Athletic Club provides a friendly, encouraging atmosphere for children and adults to learn in.

"The emphasis is on improvement of the individual rather than placing - this will happen as they improve their skills,” Carolyn said.

"Athletics is the basis of all sports whether running, throwing or jumping.”

Carolyn invites new and existing members to a Friday club night on March 3 at 6pm at the CQUniversity oval.

She said the club attends a range of competitions during the season and culminates in the ANQ Championships in September at Townsville.

"In 2002 we also conducted our first carnival at CQAC for the Rockhampton City Games, which led to us to conducting our first biannual track and field carnival in 2003,” she said.

"The event continues today with the next one being conducted on June 24 and 25”
