6 October 2018 – Red Track Athletics

The first Athletics ACT (AACT) Red Track Meet for Summer Series 2018/19 was held on Saturday 6th October 2018 at the AIS.

Some fantastic results from the following athletes who represented Ginninderra Athletics at the annual AACT Come & Try Day. Many of the below athletes have never participated in a Red Track Athletics Meet before.

There were fantastic records broken as well with Augustine Nketia breaking the U16B 200m Record with 22.88s and his older brother Edward Nketia breaking the U20M 200m Record with 21.85s. Austin Tetteh also broke the U16B 200m record with 23.19s which has stood since 2001 - an amazing 17 years and broken twice in the same race. Caleb Jolifee 1.55m broke the M40 High Jump record.

A number of the UC Athletics Academy's Silver, Gold and Platinum Masters squad members also competed including Charlotte Fowler, Rosalie Carter, Rose Cajetan, Caleb Jolifee, Luke Allard, Connor Pratt, Toula Andronicos, Vivian Williams, Nick Donaldson and Mikayala Fitzpatrick.

Congratulations to everyone who represented the Club and a special thanks to Jim Maranan and Phil Henderson for volunteering as Officials. Ginninderra Athletics recognises the contribution and efforts of its technical officials at the end of each season. Officials will be recognised for their service at 8 or more days of athletics meets in the summer and winter each year. You do not require any special qualifications to take on a volunteering role at a Reds Track Athletics meet however there is training and support available to anyone who wishes to learn more about events.

A big thank you also to Neil and Eden Thomas for running the UC Ginninderra Athletics Club tent and for taking photos.

Registration Day – 6 October 2018

Have you wanted to ask questions about Little Athletics? What events  and how long does it all take? What is Red Track Athletics and can parents join in? When is training and who are the coaches? What does inclusion look like?

Even if you don't have any questions and just want to pick up your Registration Pack (Coles Badge, Age Patch, Registration Number) and Uniform then this Saturday at Westfield Belconnen outside National Sponsor Coles you will find Ginninderra Athletics.

This is our first registration day of the year. Our Committee and a team of Athletes will be on hand to answer all of your questions.

Find us in the Fresh Food Court outside Coles Belconnen from 9:30am to 12:30pm.

Our next Registration Day where you can pick up your Registration Pack (Coles Badge, Age Patch, Registration Number) is Saturday 13th October 2018 at Charnwood District Playing Fields from 8:30am and is part of our own Come & Try Day.



Come & Try Red Track Athletics – 6 October 2018

This weekend is the first event of the 2018/2019 AACT Track&Field Series and with that the annual ‘Come & Try Day’.

We would like to make this event a great experience for both new and existing members so firstly I would encourage you to visit our club tent for more information about Red Track meets and details on Ginninderra Athletics including registration.

When you arrive at the track look out for our experienced athletes in Club Uniform who will show you to the Commonwealth Room, provide you with a new athlete info sheet and take you around the venue to help you understand how Athletics ACT events are run. 

The Come & Try Day is free to register and can be done online now.

The first event will start at 3:45pm and you will report direct to the event site as each event is called.  It would be of assistance and will speed up the process if you can print the Come and Try Entry Form, fill it in and bring it with you on the day or register online.

Please be at the event site at least 20 minutes before the event so that your name can be recorded prior to the commencement of the event. The list of events for the day is available on the AACT website.
