The main focus at Cherrybrook Athletics is improving the athlete's own individual  performance. In Little Athletics, this is encouraged by a Coloured Patch Award system. Athletes are awarded coloured patches, based on achieving certain levels of performance in a number of the athletic disciplines, covering both track and field events. There are five categories, - the easiest to achieve is the Yellow, with each level after ( Green, Red, Blue and Gold) progressively  harder to achieve. Athletes who qualify for the Gold award or meet Gold level performances in particular events are generally State equivalent athletes.

At Cherrybrook, Awards are also given on presentation night to the Most Consistent athlete in each age group, as well as the Most Improved, based on a designated points system. By attending as many competition nights and going in as many events as possible, athletes give themselves the best opportunity to win these Awards. Awards are also presented to athletes who compete at Regional and State level, as well as those who attained club records in individual events during that season. Trophies are also awarded to the best Senior Athletes in the Under 20 categories, and also to the best Open and Masters Athletes. The most prestigious club award is the T.J.Beale Perpetual Trophy*,which is given to a grl and boy who best epitomize the philosophy of Little Athletics. The Criteria for this Award consists of attendance of 70%,a positive atttude and a willingness to embrace good sportsmanship. Each year the Committee will determne a particular age group that the winners will come from in that season.

* When Cherrybrook Athletics commenced in 1994, the Club was financially strong in that initial season due to a generous contribution from Mr T. J. Beale, the grandfather of our first coach James Fitzgerald. The committee that year decided it was important to recognise this, and the T. J. Beale Perpetual Trophy was born. Mr Beale passed away during the 1998/1999 season.
