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.
