Lots of variety for our second Thursday Training session this Thursday - long jump and sprints for our youngest group (U7s & U8s), U9s and U10s will be on High Jump (scissors) and older athletes on Triple Jump. Thursday training is a great opportunity to practice your technique, particularly in events which are new for your age group this season. The session are FREE to all GUNLAC athletes, we just ask that parents stay and supervise their children during training - helpers are alway welcome too! Please do not leave your children unsupervised at training. Check out our training page for more details.
Our week 2 program is now available on the Club Documents page. We have been forced to make some modifications to the program as the new long jump pit will not be available again this week due to rain during the week. Fingers crossed it will be right for next week! Some groups have two throws to cover for this, we will balance out events during the remainder of the season.
This season we will again be running training for all GUNLAC athletes U7s and older on Thursday afternoons at Amaroo Oval. Training is FREE and is a great opportunity for athletes to practice their skills in between Saturday meets. During the season we will be offering event specific training session (such as High Jump, Triple Jump etc), so keep an eye on our Training page for up coming sessions.
Training commences on Thursday October 19th, running from 5.15pm - 6.30pm. The week 1 schedule is now up on our Training page.

The Handbook also includes technical information for Age Group managers and parents on how to run all field events at our Saturday meets.

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

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.
