Merger: One Tigers – What it all means?

In the lead up to the Special General Meeting to discuss the merger of GLAC with UC Ginninderra Athletics Club, a series of posts will be posted discussing some of the key background thinking behind the proposal.

What it all means – One Sport, One Athlete, One Club?

The intent of the proposed merger is to be athlete centric and focused around One Sport, One Athlete, One Club with pathways to an engaged athlete across their athletics career and a sustainable club to support them.

The membership of Ginninderra Athletics is as diverse as the events available in the sport. The Club must adapt and cater for all its members.

Our members due to their age and interest may choose to do the sport with our Club either socially or competitively. That same individual over time may change their interests and the Club will cater for them at any stage in their life.

Tiny Tots – ACT Playgroups; Little A’s – LAACT; Big A’s – AACT; Masters – AMA

In recognition of the diversity of the Club the following Member Scenarios after the merger of UCGAC and GLAC to form Ginninderra Athletics have been identified:
