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!

Unfortunately due to the rain overnight, and more rain coming we have made the decision to CANCEL today's meet. The grounds are too wet and we need to keep in mind safety for athletes.
