Our GUNLAC Handbook has been updated for the 2017-18 Season and is now available on for viewing on the CLUB DOCUMENTS page. Its a great resource for families new to Little Athletics, and also returning families who want to check out key dates for this season, as well as our award winners and record breakers from last season. The Handbook also includes technical information for Age Group managers and parents on how to run all field events at our Saturday meets.
Registrations for this season are NOW OPEN and can be made online - check out our Registration Page for all the information you need to register.
With Season 2017-18 fast approaching, we have updated our Club Records to reflect all new records set in the 2016-17 season. Check out all the records for your age group in 2017-18 - some are over 10 years old, must be time for them to be broken! The records can be found on our Results page.
Our Come and Try and Registration weekend will be held on October 7th and 8th at Amaroo Oval - 10am - 12pm both days.
The weekend is an opportunity to find out more about us, if you're new to Little Athletics, or if you want to try out some running, jumping and throwing activities, We will also have registration packs ready for pick up for those athletes who have completed registrations online prior to that weekend.
Check out our Come and Try Page for more details.
If you haven't yet registered for Season 2017-18, check out our HOW TO REGISTER page for all the information you need on how to register online.
The Level 1 Community Coaching Course is a great introduction to coaching young athletes. We would recommend this course for those parents interested in assisting in coaching at training, and also our Age Group Managers who help out athletes in events at Saturday meets. Athletics ACT regularly runs this course during the athletics season, the next one is being held on Sunday September 3rd. It is not too late to register - full details on the Athletics ACT website. Email Shane Ellis if you are interested in attending. GUNLAC will reimburse the costs of this course for those parents who assist in coaching this season.
It may be snowing today but before will know it, it will be warming up and time for Little Athletics! Planning for our Season is well underway and we are keen to fill the remaining positions on our Committee and Committee Support positions. In particular we are seeking:
On Track Coordinator for Under 6 athletes
We are also recruiting Age Group Managers for all age groups. Check out the Age Group Manager Page for more information on the role of the Age Group Manager.
This year you can sign up for these positions, and many others, during Athlete registration using the Duty Roster. If you have already registered but would like to volunteer you can email the Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org
Did you know that if you are an athlete Registered with Gungahlin Little Athletics Club and are Under 12 - Under 17 age groups , you can register as a Dual Athlete with North Canberra Gungahlin Athletics Club? NCGA are a senior athletics club with athletes competing in ACT Athletics meets during both summer and winter seasons. Summer series meets are held on Friday or Saturday afternoons (no clash with Little Athletics!). Full flyer with link an be found here on our Club Documents page.
Registrations for GUNLAC Season 2017/18 are now open!
You can register on the Little Athletics ACT website - click here and select Register in the top right hand corner. Check out more details on our Registration Page!
Please note that this year we will be asking families to nominate a position or duty that they are able to perform during the season. A few of these jobs are every week positions, most are not and just require a family to help out a few times during the season (such as being on a Canteen roster or helping on age group baskets). We cannot run our meets without parents to help, and we do not want to have to rely on only a handful of parents helping EVERY week.
Like to plan ahead? Already thinking about this coming summer? We have draft dates for our 2017-18 Season now available on our calendar page. These dates will be confirmed at the upcoming AGM by the newly appointed GUNLAC Committee.
Our AGM will be held on WEDNESDAY 2nd AUGUST 7.30pm at the Gungahlin Community Centre - All welcome! We will need some new faces on the Committee this year to make sure the 2017-18 is successful!
The GUNLAC AGM will be held on WEDNESDAY AUGUST 2nd at the Gungahlin Community Centre - 47 Ernest Cavanagh Street Gungahlin. We have hired a room in the Community Centre for our AGM this year.
At the AGM all Committee positions will be declared vacant and nominations will be sought. We will have some vacancies in our Committee this season with some long standing members taking a break from their roles. In order to continue to be a successful club we do need more new parents to get involved! If your child or children love Little Athletics, why not get involved and help all our athletes to have an enjoyable 2017-18 season!
Wow – what a great morning we had for our Presentation Day on Saturday! Lots of highlights, including the GUNLAC Gift races which are always lots of fun and very exciting. Congrats to Jaime and Maxwell our winners of the two races in very close finishes. Congrats also to all our PB and Age Champions – this year we introduced Gold, Silver and Bronze medals for our Age Champions which was a great success we think! Our very deserving Club Champion was Milana from Under 7 Girls, who also broke two club records this season. Well done also to our Club Persons of the Year – Hannah and Nick, who both were recognised for their outstanding contributions to our club this season. Best of luck to all our athletes next weekend at ACT Champs, and don’t forget if you can help us out at the BBQ please do – we need lots of help to get to our fundraising goal!
