Tigers tame Australian Little Athletics Championships in Adelaide

In the most perfect way to end 2015-16, Ginninderra's athletes including Jeremy Maranan, Jacob Davill, Meg Freeman, Chelsea Tobin, Nick Donaldson, Charlotte Rauraa and UC Tiger Teliya Hetaraka (CLAC) have all performed sensationally at Australian Little Athletics Championships today.

The ACT had a stellar day with 4 medals, two of which were claimed by the mighty Ginninderra Tigers. The gutsy efforts of the team saw many final appearances and some magnificent Personal Bests. The ACT team claimed the 2016 Small State and Alan Tricot Trophy ahead of arch rivals Tasmania. Congratulations to everyone on the team for some brilliant individual efforts.

ACT Male Captain Jeremy competed in the 100m (12.09s), 200m (25.87s), Long Jump (5.05m) and 4x100m Relay.  Jeremy had a brilliant day claiming a silver medal in the 100m Final as well as finishing 7th in the 200m Final and 7th in the Relay.

Co-captain Chelsea competed in the 100m (12.89s), 200m (27.85s) and 4x100m Relay. Chelsea made yet another National Final finishing 6th in the Final of the 100m, she came 2nd in the Consolation Final of the 200m and 5th in the Relay.

Birthday Boy Jacob competed in the 800m (2:13.82) and the 1500m (4:34.27 PB). Jacob got his birthday wishes with a bronze medal in the Final of the 800m and also ran really well to finish 5th in the 1500m Final.

Nick competed in the 400m (1:00.48 PB), 800m (2:35.57) and 4x100m Relay. Nick made the 400m Final finishing 8th fastest in the country and also joined team mate Jeremy in coming 7th in the Relay.

Meg competed in the 400m (1:01.59 PB) and 800m (2:26.59) Meg made the final of the 400m where she was also placed 8th best in Australia and 10th in the Final of the 800m.

Charlotte competed in the Javelin (28.90m) and the Shot Put (8.73m). She finished 11th and 12th overall respectively in both events rounding off an excellent brace of performances.

Miss T who competed in the Shot Put (8.49m) and Discus (31.93m) also represented the ACT with pride finishing 13th in Shot and 9th in the Discus. Another fantastic result from our senior Tigers.

The 2015-16 Season may now be over, however Winter is Coming to the Capital very soon, you can get involved with Winter High Noon meets with UC Ginninderra Athletics Club.

What a way to end our anniversary year

The 2015-16 season may have now come to an end, however the Little Athletics ACT Association came together at the Southern Cross Club to celebrate the year that was.

The evening featured a gala dinner to congratulate the athletes who made it to the ACT team for the Australian Little Athletics Championships as well as recognising those Clubs who performed strongly at the LAACT Carnivals.

The Tigers celebrated 40 years this season and for the first time the club tasted success as the Centre of the Year as determined by the Board of Management.

Ginninderra also received the Dennis Goodwin ACT Championship Award for achieving the highest points aggregate score at the LAACT State Championships in March.

The Tigers also claimed the John Hunt Northside Championship Award from the outstanding performances by our whole club at the Regionals Carnival held at Charnwood in February.

Ginninderra was also successful in claiming the Multievent Championship Award which was also held at Charnwood for the first time in 2015.

Ginninderra wishes to thank the support of the ACT Government and our generous sponsors who's assistance has made this all possible.

This success has been built from the ground-up from our Under 6s to Under 17s. Everyone involved in the club from our athletes, senior and junior coaches, committee, age marshals, parents, volunteers, officials, past members, supporters, sponsors, family and friends deserve a huge pat on the back for a magnificent result in our 40th Year. Happy Birthday.

Presentation Day – 2 April 2016

With a break in tradition and an early easter celebration (long weekend) the annual Ginninderra Little Athletics Club Presentation Day will be held on the 2nd of April 2016 at Charnwood Oval from 9am.

The morning will start with a short Annual General Meeting followed by the presentation of Awards and Age Group Medals.

Please join us as we celebrate a fantastic season filled with many many Personal Bests, great memories, new friends, team success and more.

If that isn't enough stick around for our Group Photo or a flop on the Jumping Castle.

For those athletes and members of the Uni Tigers the Presentation Night is Friday the 8th of April. There will be pizza and prizes for the older athletes of Ginninderra.

LAACT ALAC Selection for 2016

The following athletes who have been selected to represent Little Athletics ACT at the Australian Little Athletics Championships in Adelaide (24th April 2016).  Selection is based on performances at the end of season LAACT State Championships.

National Championships are held each year on the weekend nearest to Anzac Day for the following:

  • U13 Australian Teams Championships for teams of 26 athletes (usually 13 boys and 13 girls) from each affiliated Association.
  • U15 Australian Multi-Event Championships for 6 athletes (3 boys and 3 girls) from each affiliated Association.

Ginninderra is very excited for Jeremy, Meg, Jacob, Charlotte, Nick and Chelsea who have been selected to represent the ACT. They represent the latest Tigers to go to ALAC following in the recent footsteps of Lara Sinclair, Molly Sturgiss, Ben Taylor, Jacob Todd, Mitch Baker, Chichi Enyi and Lauren Robards.

Best of luck to all the ACT team and commiserations to those unlucky athletes who missed selection this time around. For anyone looking to compete over Winter in Ginninderra's Intraclub competition please keep your eye on our Facebook page.
