ATHLETICS Fiji president Albert Miller says weekly competitions will become a regular occurrence until August.
He said the competitions were focused on exposing young athletes to regular competition as Athletics Fiji wanted to mould them for the 2015 Pacific Games.
Miller said it was about time they started working towards preparing athletes for the long run rather than concentrating on the short term.
"Basically, we are now looking forward to 2015, the Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea," he said.
"We have the Mini Games this year but then after that the big picture is the Pacific Games so we need to work towards that."
He said the more they trained the younger athletes now, the better they would become in the next few years.
"It's important that we put more emphasis on them now so that come 2015, they only need training on the competition and they are good to go.
"There is potential out there and with regular competitions we should be able to identify athletes that will our reps at the Pacific Games."
Miller said now their approach would be include regular competition.
"In the past, there was no regular competition and athletes would only train and then after only one to two competition, they would disappear but we hope to change that with regular competition," he said.
Meanwhile, double amputee, Derek Derenalagi, a former Fijian soldier who represented Great Britain in the 2012 Paralympic Games, was present at Cathedral Secondary School grounds to motivate the budding athletes.
He said he hoped to use his story of overcoming disability to achieve success to inspire the young athletes of his country of birth.
"I am here for a few months and I will continue my training here and I would just like to tell the young athletes not to give up hope and not to lose sight of your goals," Derenalagi said.
