IT’S been a huge year for junior sport in the
Little Athletics continued to flourish in Tennant Creek
with close to 100 members.
The season started with 26 athletes heading off to
Adelaide to compete in the SA Little Athletics State
Championships in March and ended with the presen-
tation of over 120 trophies in October at the annual
Bianca Norman and Meshach Bonney-Smith were
crowned junior champions, Sarah Smith and Will Mc-
Donough senior champions.
Other highlights included the selection of Matthew
Green in the SA State Team which competed at the Aus-
tralian Little Athletics Championships in Canberra and
the all round performance of the squad that travelled to
Darwin for the NT Championships, after which Jarrod
Clark, Kalheel Galaminda and Will McDonough were
named in the NT Squad to compete at the School Sport
Nationals in Brisbane.
In AFL, Barkly junior teams travelled to Alice Springs
and Darwin during the year, with the Barkly 12 and
under School Sport side surprising everybody in Darwin
with a top four finish and three players named in the
NT Squad, who all went on to be key position players
in the NT team that finished second behind the strong
Victorian side at the nationals.
The same trio, Liam Fitz, Kyrell Barton and Matthew
Green would later in the year be part of the Barkly U14
team to play in the Michael Long Cup, also in Darwin.
That team again turned heads, losing only one game

by 2 points to eventual winners Nightcliff.
Ty Green from Borroloola and Zac Foster were named
alongside Liam, Kyrell and Matthew in the inaugural
U14 remote talent squad that will reunite in Darwin
next year to take on the city talent squad.
Auskick and Junior Thunder continued to thrive with
registrations ‘through the roof’ thanks to the NT Gov-
ernment’s Sport Voucher Scheme.
With the Barkly back in the School Sport system as
its own region, teams travelled to intra-state carnivals
to compete in netball, touch football, track and field,
cricket, 15 and under AFL and 12 and under AFL.
Story went on to represent the NT in touch and Mat-
thew Green travels to Bendigo in January for the cricket
The Swim Club has also continued in Tennant and
will be look forward to using the new pool at the start
of the 2014/15 season.
Our junior cricketers have received national media
attention for their efforts in travelling weekly to Alice
Springs to play cricket with Federal Cricket Club.
Could not leave out the TC Dance Crew.
Whilst not necessarily recognised as a sport, it defi-
nitely provides an outlet to keep young people active,
give them confidence and flexibility.
They have performed publicly many times throughout
the year and if you haven’t seen them, you have missed
out on something special.
A big thank you to all the coaches, officials, adminis-
trators, parents, teachers and sponsors who contribute
to the above and more.
ANYINGINYI Sport ‘n’ Recreation program is
providing some welcome relief for parents
and children alike over the summer holiday
They are running an extensive range of activities
for children of all ages, covering the entire school
holidays other than three days over Christmas and
New Year’s Day.
They have had good numbers so far but the message
to all the kids in town is that the more of you who are
there, the more fun for everyone.
Some of the physical sports such as touch football,
basketball and t-ball have been a little slow this year
because it has been so uncomfortably hot, even in the
mornings, but there is still plenty of stuff to do such
as playing in the games room or hanging out at the
pool where it is always cool and relaxing.
Every Friday afternoon the water castle is erected
and swimming activities are on the agenda after 1pm
most days. Parents are encouraged to bring their chil-
dren down to be introduced to the staff at Sport ‘n’
Rec, so important contact details can be documented.
Holiday program will keep kids busy
