The Little Athletics NSW JETS (Junior Encouragement & Talent Squad) program aims to recognise, reward and foster emerging talent in the sport. The program gives athletes in the Under 12 – 17 age groups the opportunity to further develop their skills, knowledge and performances to a higher level in an enjoyable social environment.
At the start of September the squad boasted approximately 100 members, which is fantastic prior to the season beginning. Those interested in learning more about the program or becoming a JETS member should simply go to the Little Athletics NSW website and click on the JETS logo or click here.
