Merger: One Tigers – Registration

In the lead up to the Special General Meeting to discuss the merger of GLAC with UC Ginninderra Athletics Club, a series of posts will be posted discussing some of the key background thinking behind the proposal.

Registration with Ginninderra Athletics

There are two Associations governing the sport of Athletics in the ACT. They are Little Athletics ACT (LAACT) and Athletics ACT (AACT). The majority of our members are registered with LAACT and our older members are registered with AACT.

The merger of the two clubs will make registration easier to understand. The joint club will participate as a single entity and eligible members (from 12 to 17 years) can also opt-in to doing red track athletics with the Tigers too at no additional cost to their Little Athletics registration - AACT call it Dual Registration.


Each Association requires individual members to complete the registration process for themselves, i.e. members of the Committee cannot do it for you. Registration is fast, easy and online:

One Club - all athletes

Joining Ginninderra Athletics removes the barriers to the sport. The merged Club views all members equally and treats them accordingly. Therefore the entitlements, support, rules and governance covers every member regardless of which Association that individual athlete chooses to join above.

The benefits of Dual Registration with Ginninderra Athletics

As a Little Athlete in the Under 12s to Under 17s there are some great benefits by dual registering with Ginninderra Athletics at Athletics ACT:

  • Membership of Ginninderra's Relay teams at State Champs;
  • Free dual registration;
  • Financial assistance for travel / competition;
  • Mentoring by elite UCGAC athletes at AACT red track events;
  • Paid Junior and Senior Coaching roles;
  • Job opportunities;
  • Eligible for Club Captain;
  • Uniform rebates;
  • Double the choice of running, throwing and jumping events on a Saturday morning;
  • Club training sessions in your favourite events;
  • Pathway to squad training;
  • Access to equipment and facilities for their own training;
  • Eligible for Club Records away from Charnwood Oval; and
  • Social Media promotion.

Support and development opportunities such as those above are provided to members of Ginninderra Athletics for the intention of growing the Club’s participation and athlete transition to red track or social athletics as an Open Age athlete.

Not a Ginninderra Little Athlete?

Ginninderra Athletics welcomes any Little Athlete in the ACT eligible for dual registration who are interested in the benefits above. Joining Ginninderra Athletics as well as your local Little Athletics Centre doesn't require you to leave your local oval to be eligible for the benefits above.

The merger of Ginninderra Athletics will help members especially those in the Under 12s and up to keep engaged, enjoy new events, receive mentoring and leadership opportunities.

2018 Athletics ACT Annual Awards

On Saturday night a number of Ginninderra Athletics big names received awards from Athletics ACT for outstanding performances across 2017-18.

The Tigers are ecstatic to see one of our hardest working coaches receive the Athletics ACT 2017-2018 Daryl Cross Coach of the Year, Hamish MacDonald. An outstanding recognition for the six time Paralympic seated shot putter who these days oversees the development of two of the club's elite para throwers in Cameron Crombie and Kathryn Ross.

Cameron who has had the best of seasons was recognised twice for Athletics ACT 2017-2018 Male Senior Athlete of the Season and the Athletics ACT 2017-2018 Mick Dowling Para Athlete of the Year. Cameron who recently won a gold medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast will have to make more room alongside his World Championship Gold and World Record for this season.

2017/2018 saw 28 ACT members represent Australia at international levels, received a medal from an international competition and/or ACT, National or World Record with these athletes all receiving a coveted Laurel Wreath for the 2018/2019 season. Among the recipients were Australian 400m Hurdles bronze medalist Matt Walters, Australian representative Mitch Baker who claimed a bronze medal in the U20 Men 10km Walk at World Race Walking Teams Championships earlier this month, UC Students Vanessa Low (two time Paralympian) and World Paralympic Gold medalist Scott Reardon, and Cameron Crombie.

Congratulations to everyone recognised by the Territory Association at the Gala Dinner and Awards Night.
