My name is Louise and I am the Waikato Athletics Development Advisor for Athletics Waikato Bay of Plenty. Part of my role is to help clubs develop and grow, help with coach development and volunteers as well as assist with making meaningful connections! I’ve been working in the Athletics industry for the past few years, predominately delivering the Get Set Go and Run Jump Throw programs into schools. It’s been fantastic and I’ve really enjoyed being a part of the project!
I’m passionate about Athletics and I love that there really is something for everyone….right from tiny tots learning fundamental skills, adolescent and youth developing their skills, right through to masters perfecting their skills! Whether you are competitive and love the thrill of ribbon days and relevant games or go every week to compete at your own club, there is an opportunity for all. I’m passionate about creating positive environments for people to participate in and to have great, successful experiences. I’m looking forward to meeting as many people as possible throughout the season and if you see me out and about, please come and say Hello! Please feel free to touch base and ask any questions you may have or to ask for support!
