Sydney Road Trip

UC Athletics Academy hit the road to the big smoke, Sydney at the start of every season.

The Academy’s interstate Road Trips provide athletes with a first hand experience of travelling for competition. The Academy encourage padticipants to get behind the initiative and support it. In previous seasons we have visited Clubs right across Sydney and Wollongong.

All Academy Athletes and their families are invited to come along. A Road Trip is a fantastic opportunity to mix with your friends away from Ginninderra Athletics Field, in a friendly and relaxed social athletics meet. You will also be able to make new friends, experience competition from a larger club with athletes you've never competed against before.

The timing of the trip coincides with the conclusion of the ACT Winter Sport Season, the official ACT Sportsground Closure Period and at the very beginning of the NSW Athletics Season in September/October.

Interested athletes must have either registered with Ginninderra Athletics  in the current or previous season to be eligible to compete and be covered by insurance. Athletes must wear their Ginninderra Uniform and registration numbers.

Where are we going?
This is a fantastic opportunity to experience the Sydney Athletics scene, meet new friends and adapt to a new atmosphere. We make new friends each year and visit Clubs that share similar values to our own.

Athletes and Parents are to be mindful that we are the guests of the Sydney Clubs, therefore athletes will abide by the competition rules and will represent Ginninderra with distinction. Parent participation with officiating is only fair given the generosity and hospitality shown by our Hosts.

Travel to and from Sydney is available from other athletes and parents making the Road Trip or you can make your own way there (see below).

If you'd like to come along, please register your Expression of Interest and Like our Facebook page for updates. We'll respond with all necessary information and keep you up-to-date on planning including Places to stay.
