Season 2016/17 was another year of positive growth for OVA Southern Saints. As a club, we are continually building registrations and the overall involvement in the club is on the rise. In the past 12 months, there have been two new members on the committee with the upcoming season seeing five new faces. OVA’s website and social media presence is our point of difference. The quality and consistent posts keeps our members and the greater community up to date with all things OVA. Dominic Anastasio has been the man behind the scenes keeping our website and social media exciting. With the ongoing demand, Lydia Attrill has put her hand up to assist I have no doubt she’ll do a stellar job. I’d like to think that the increase in volunteers across the club is a direct reflection of OVA’s culture. The Race to the Taste continues to be the clubs major fundraiser and biggest resource hungry event we are involved in. Page 03

Without this race, the club wouldn’t be financially stable. The majority of the work is done leading up to the event, liaising with Hobart City Council, Tasmania Police, and The Stroke Foundation etc. In the years gone by, it has been Brendan Hanigan, Dominic Anastasio and myself doing the majority of the leg work to get the event up and running every year. We always seem to get things together and haven’t had any major issues during the race (touch wood). On race day, anywhere up to 20 volunteers are needed to set up, take and hand out entries, act as course marshals etc. Over the last few years, there has been discussion for someone new to take on the roll as Race Director. Personally, I’d like to see someone else take it on as my time during summer is limited between my work commitments, training (when not injured) and additional athletics commitments – Club President and Athletics Tasmania Chairman of Selectors (Track and Field). Between, Brendan, Dominic and myself, we can mentor any willing parent that has an interest in taking on Race Director. Athletics was revolutionised last summer with Nitro Athletics, headlined by the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt. Track and field was on free to air TV, across three jammed packed nights of entertainment at Melbourne’s Lakeside Stadium in February 2017. The brand of track and field needed a change to keep Page 04

PRESIDENTS REPORT CONTINUED up with the increasing social demand, cricket has Twenty20, Tennis has Fast4, AFL has AFL9’s and Soccer had Futsal etc. Before the start of the last interclub season, Athletics South held a forum to hear what the athletes wanted. Athletics South introduced some minor changes with the introduction of morning interclub and shorter programs. OVA provided a comprehensive response to Athletics South at the end of the season, which was circulated to all members. There will always be challenges and compromises that have to be made along the way, but I hope all OVA members support and are open to any future changes to keep track and field relevant for the broader community. Last season OVA once again continued a close relationship with Queenborough Little Athletics Club. After the lessons learnt from the previous season, OVA held a number of training nights for specific event groups rather than a generic coaching session. The training nights enabled OVA athletes to teach event specific techniques that they may not get of a Saturday morning at competition.

I’d like to thank all the OVA athletes that volunteered their time; I know that QLAC are very appreciative of the time and effort we show their members. As well as helping at QLAC, OVA members volunteered there time at Kingborough and East Derwent Little Athletics Centres. It’d be great to see Athletics Tasmania and Athletics South working together with Tasmanian Little Athletics to create a positive culture and transition young athletes smoothly through their teenage years. Lastly, I’d like to thank the hard working OVA Committee, without volunteers there isn’t an amateur sporting club in Australia that would survive. The committee has grown on the last two years and I hope that we can continue to grow and provide a positive environment for all current and future OVA members. Go OVA!

Season 2016-17 provided a great opportunity to continue to develop on the growth experienced by the club over the last few years. In particular, a focus on team spirit and participation has seen the OVA Southern Saints as the destination club for both members looking to further their athletic ambitions - but also those who want to experience a good time with friends. The previous season continued to develop this, particularly through the increased encouragement and participation in relay events, of which the club was often the best represented. For the first time in a long time, OVA were often around the top - if not on top - of the points score for the weekly interclubs; a great sign of members wanting to get involved.

The introduction of the hoodies last year and the long sleeve t-shirt this year has enhanced the opportunities for our members to show their OVA love, and we’ll look to continue to create awesome gear for our members in the coming season. Given the now positive standing of the club in the local track and field scene, social events are back on the agenda as we want to extend the good times beyond competition the Domain. Our club records have seen a great revamp in the past two years, courtesy of committee member Graeme Beechey. These ongoing updates, along with monitoring of the points, greatly assist with the respective awards at the end of the year also. The Race to the Taste continues to be tweaked and fine tuned - the amount of effort that goes into this event behind the scenes is enourmous, as the club looks to balance the work and financial loads of this event more evenly. Season 2017-18 will be an exciting one for the club and track and field in Hobart, as we look to reinvigorate athletics to both meet the needs of members but also attract the interest of the wider community. Stay tuned and thanks for your ongoing support of OVA #goOVA
