The Little Athletics season is underway and training has started in earnest.
Alex Van Der Meer, the ACT Little Athletics Development officer, travelled from Canberra to give the athletes some expert coaching. The emphasis was on learning skills whilst having fun.
Mr Van Der Meer is an experienced marathon runner and coach and Jindabyne Little Athletics was glad of his expert advice.
After training, the Navy came to visit. They had been training in the Snowy Mountains, and they landed their helicopters on the oval. The Naval Officers were more than happy to give the athletes a guided tour of their six helicopters, and gave up their time to answer questions.
It is believed that they gained some future recruits. Jindabyne Little Athletics would like to thank Chief Paul Davies for the opportunity to observe the naval helicopters at such close quarters.
