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 awards are the * T.J.Beale Perpetual Trophy* and the ** Daniel Berry Perpetual Trophy.

The
T J Beale Award is given to a girl and boy who best epitomize the philosophy of Little Athletics. The Criteria for this Award consists of attendance of 70%, a positive attitude and a willingness to embrace good sportsmanship. During the 2000/2001 season the Committee agreed that the perpetual trophy would be awarded to athletes in the Under 12 age group.

The
Daniel Berry Award is given to a senior athlete over 16 who has a positive attitude and a willingness to embrace good sportsmanship and has competed more than 8 times in a season which can include representation for Cherrybrook Senior Athletics, NSW Athletics and/or Athletics Australia.


* 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.
Daniel Berry
** Daniel Berry was a Cherrybrook Seniors athlete from 2009 - 2013
. throughout this period of time Daniel broke many NSW and Australian records in the U20 and Open Male AWD divisions in running events ranging from 100m to 1500m as well as long jump and discus. He also participated for Cherrybrook Athletics on a regular basis at interclub competitions, State Relays and Allcomers events with great enthusiasm and determination. In July 2013 Daniel tragically lost his life to cancer at the very young age of 22. He will be long remembered by our club for his humble attitude and the inspirational way he lived his life on and off the athletics track. In memory of Daniel Berry the 2013/14 Cherrybrook Athletics Committee introduced the Daniel Berry Award for the Senior division of the Club.
