Ginninderra isn’t just for “little” athletes. There’s lots in store this season for our Teen Athletes (12 – 17 years). The action gets underway on a Saturday morning from 9:50am with the program finishing by 11:45am for all five events.
The primary focus for our teen athletes is very much fun and fitness. Our development pathway through the UC Athletics Academy is unique and provides opportunities for everyone to grow and build in the sport.
We are also the only all ages club in the ACT where our members are freely able to choose between competing at Grass Track Athletics or Red Track Athletics meets. Our Teens have a pathway from Little Athletics to Athletics ACT.
Our Saturday morning meets feature seeded track events where athletes can self select to run or walk with athletes of a similar ability.
Ginninderra Athletics’ leadership programs are also second to none. Our teen athletes can join the Junior Coach program and help the Tiger Cubs with their events by being mentors, encouraging and enthusiastic young leaders.
The Education opportunities provided by the club give athletes not only theoretical knowledge about the sport and event preparation, but also the chance to apply themselves in an academic sense by following a path from College, CIT to the University of Canberra.
Ginninderra Athletics is also the leading club “team” within Athletics ACT through our impressive number of relay teams at Association events every season across every event offered.
The Club also boasts some of the best facilities in Canberra which attract not only Senior athletes to the club but also association meets including the R U OK? Grass Games and the Northside Regional Carnival.
