Stop the press… Csenge’s mighty leap

The Committee has found another record from the recent LAACT State Championships. Csenge Keszei in the U13F Triple Jump cleared the old record (9.97m) set by Miss L Toohey in 1982 by just under a metre.

Leading into the Champs Csenge's best leap was 8.81m and she managed to set the new record on her way to winning he State Championship and Gold Medal from Ariadne Stergiou from Calwell.

Csenge was one of the Club's representatives in the recently announced ALAC National Team announcement by ALAC.

Presentation Day 2018

The sun may be going down on our summer season but our winter series will start next term.

Tiny Tots will return in April with the help of our flamboyant team headed up by the ever encouraging and enthusiastic Fiona Jarvis.

Cross Country will take you places you may not have seen before too. There will be distances for everybody. Our weekly program will also start in April. Stay tuned for more details.

The AGM and Presentation Evening will be held 6th April from 5pm at Charnwood Oval under lights. The Gecko Gang will be there to help us celebrate.

The Club is looking for ideas about the new season. If you’d like to help shape Ginninderra Athletics as we adopt the new national On Track program for Tiger Cubs, move through the Age Group realignment, implement our inclusion program for seniors and masters, and deliver our junior athlete transition program we’d love to hear from you.

Next summer the Club will have a single constitution covering our youngest to oldest members all under the banner of the Ginninderra Tigers. There will be one registration with one club covering all aspects of the sport and membership.

To hear more about the changes and the vision that the Committee has for the club join us at Charnwood Oval Number 127 (corner Florey Drive and Lhotsky Street) on the 6th of April.
