The All Stars Track and Field team finished off a fantastic year with an end of season family BBQ and awards night at our regular practice field. Athletes were treated to fun games, a visit from Halton Police with their Police Car, a face painter, magic tricks and even circus skills and juggling!

DJ Nate, one of our athletes, did a stellar job with music and announcements.

The delicious burgers and hot dogs were cooked by our very own Coach Andy and Coach Gerry.

Our Head Coach Rob announced that in the 3 track meets we attended this season, the All Stars won a whopping 225 top places (1st, 2nd and 3rd).  As the youngest track team in our area, only in our second year and with a lower average age than our competing teams, this is an incredible achievement! Each athlete received an award for their personal achievement this summer – and a beautiful medal inscribed on the back with Burlington All Stars 2016.

We finished off the night with some dancing and karaoke – and of course a final All Stars cheer.

Thank you to all our wonderful coaches and volunteers (Coaches Rob, Helen, Jan, Karen, Jenn, Lucy, Catherine, Mary-Ann, Linda, Gerry, Andy, Mehmet and Junior Coaches Scott and Matt).

See you all next year!
