In 1976 ‘Ginninderra Centre of the Little Athletics Association of New South Wales’ was formed and based at Charnwood Oval. The Centre was to cater for children in Melba, Spence, Evatt, Charnwood, Macgregor, Flynn and the fledgling suburb of Fraser. The first official committee meeting was held on 11 Aug 1976 with Mr Ross Stiles as Chairman. First Registration day was 25 Sept 1976 and competition started on 2 Oct 1976 catering for U6 to U12 age groups. In the first season there were 266 athletes.
In 2000 a major sponsorship arrangement was entered into with the West Belconnen Leagues Club. The Centre was renamed 'Ginninderra-West Belconnen Little Athletics Centre'. The Committee of Ginninderra Little Athletics Centre decided to establish a seniors club primarily to 'transition' its young athletes into senior competition. The name 'West Belconnen Athletics Club' was chosen because of te support and encouragementof the West Belconnen Leagues Club. The Athletics Club was incorporated in September 2000 ready for the summer athletics season. The eventual aim was to be able to merge the LA's Centre and the new Club at the earliest possible time once the administrative obstacles could be overcome. This would establish the Club as the only "all age" athletics club in the ACT. The LA's Centre and the Club were merged and reincorporated in August 2001. In 2009 the joint Club changed its name to Ginninderra Little Athletics Club.
The Club has seen its athletes go on to represent Australia at various levels as they have continued their athletics careers in senior athletics, but they never forget where they first discovered the joy of athletics!
It is hoped this success will continue long into the future.
