Childrens' sport helpers vital
Hey, the temperature is rising, summer
is on the way --- and that means summer
sport is just around the corner.
Recently we've had about 300 kids
compete in golf tournaments across the
With clubs keen to continue the coaching
programme, hopefully some of them will
make golf their first or second summer
Traditionally, athletics, cricket, tennis,
softball and swimming, when the pool
opens, are the most popular sports for the
But when it comes to children and sports
it is not just a matter of dropping them off
and picking them up.
All the above-mentioned sports need
heaps of helpers to make it happen. It is
actually a good chance to spend quality
time with your children.
Two key sports in our area that would
welcome a helping hand are athletics and
cricket. The South Otago Athletic Club is
the provider of some top events in the
district, such as the Rosebank Half
Marathon and the Clutha District Sports
They also deliver some great fundamen-
tal athletic skills to many young ones
around our area. But right now they
would welcome more helpers, especially
on their committee.
Last year, the Otago Cricket Association,
along with Sport Clutha, ran a cricket
tournament in Milton, with 24 teams
taking part. In 2009 we had eight.
This is a wonderful opportunity for local
cricket clubs to tap into the 200 kids that
have signalled an interest in the sport.
Tiny Carruthers is the Sport Clutha
regional co-ordinator for the Clutha
district. Call 418 3046 or email

the team, but were were unable to match the pace
