Congratulations to Everyone for the 2014/2015 Season!
We had a huge season with 247 Little Athletes at Wright Park, many Personal Bests (PBs) and a number of club records broken.
Saturdays mornings are for Little Athletics! The 2015/2016 season starts in Term 4 of 2015 and continues through term one of 2016, observing the January school holidays in NSW and the ACT. Exact dates will be published shortly.
Family, Fun and Fitness
Little Athletics is a sport managed by parents for children aged between 5 (born before 30 March 2011) and less than 17 years (not before 1 October 1998). If your athlete was born before 1 October 1998 they are counted as an adult athlete. To check what age group your Little Athlete is in, there is an age calculator page here.
Queanbeyan Little Athletics Centre (QLAC), also known as Queanbeyan Lightning, is all about:
Family – Parents assisting with activities. There’s more about being a parent volunteer here, the role of parents here and FAQs here.
Fun – Emphasis is on individual improvement rather than winning, so we talk Personal Bests for everyone.
Fitness – Athletes are involved in a range of activities to improve their fitness.
QLAC is affiliated with Little Athletics ACT (LAACT). This means that QLAC athletes can compete against other clubs in the ACT region at major events to gain more experience or just to meet up with other athletes. LAACT publishes a regional calendar which is updated regularly, and the initial 2015/2016 calendar is here.
QLAC is committed to keeping registration fees as low as possible so that all children can take part. To achieve this aim, additional funds are raised from a number of sources. Profits from the canteen provide some essential funding. The club runs raffles during the season and sells uniform items as fundraisers.
QLAC has a number of sponsors who have supported us over the years. Several local businesses have offered us sponsorship through reduced costs, funds and direct assistance. We thank them all for their ongoing support and ask that you consider them for business.
