LAACT Relay Championship registration

The LAACT Relay Championship is being held on Saturday 16th December at the Woden Synthetic Athletics Track near the Canberra Hospital.

The Association requires Athletes to pre-register to avoid having to spend 30 minutes writing names on the Field event result sheets.

Ginninderra Athletics is asking every member to consider representing the club at the first Association Carnival of the season. This is our chance to come together as a Club and participate as one. There is no limit on the number of athletes or teams a Club can enter.

Please complete the club's pre-registration form. We'd love to see a sea of Yellow at Woden this December.

 

Subway Goodsport Award

This Season, Ginninderra Athletics has partnered with Subway Charnwood to provide one Goodsport Award for the most deserving Boy and Girl in each Age Group every week.

The Goodsport Award will be presented to the Athlete who goes out and beyond in the support, encouragement, determination and exemplification of the ideals of Family Fun and Fitness at Ginninderra Athletics.

Tigers who receive this award will have shown the best of behaviours, showing the best of the Club, that week in their age group.

Subway Charnwood will provide in exchange for the award certificate a Subway Six Inch Sub of the athlete's choice.

Athletes names will appear in the Goodsport Hall of Fame displayed at the Canteen and one lucky Athlete's personal story will be posted on Facebook to accompany their award.

Join Ginninderra Athletics this season and enjoy the Subway Inclusion Program each week with the Tigers.

Find what you are looking for this summer with the Tigers

An unfamiliar oval can be initially daunting especially when you are seeking a group of children who are all roughly the same size as one another.  Ginninderra Athletics have purchased some magnificent looking Age Group Flags to help you find what you are looking for this summer.

The Flags will be flying at the athlete meeting place near the Club Barbecue and Canteen each morning along with the Age Group basket. Simply navigate your way to your team and off you go once the nominated Team Manager has signed out the Age Group Folder from the Canteen.

If you are running late, just keep an eye for the Flag or the Team Manager Vest with your Age Group number on the back.

You can also find where each event area is located by following the conveniently placed event flags positioned near each location.

Sun Smart Tigers all set for season start

The athletes of Ginninderra Athletics will be cooling off between jumps and throws this coming season thanks to the awarding of a Capital Assistance Program Grant from the ACT Government.

The Tigers are investing $22,000 into Facilities Renewal at Charnwood Athletics Field which includes the construction of two 8.8m and 3m Sun Shelters.

The new Shade Structures will be located at either end of the Oval with the first positioned between the Long Jump Pits and the Discus Cages and the second near the Shot Put Circles at the Northern end of the Oval.

The Grant is a continued investment by Ginninderra Athletics and the ACT Government which has seen over $500,000 committed to the Charnwood District Playing Fields in recent years. The support the club receives from its generous Sponsors allows the Tigers to co-fund initiatives such as the Facilities Renewal with the ACT Government.
