Saturday mornings are for Little Athletics and Online registrations are open! The morning of our first competition day is SATURDAY 6 November 202a from 8.30am to 11.00am. COVID-safe check-in is from 8am, and must be completed before you can enter the grounds.
Little Athletics is a sport managed by parents for children aged between 5 and less than 17 years. If you or your athlete are older, you or they can also compete as an adult athlete. You can check the age group or find for more information about senior athletics.
The 2021/2022 season runs Term 4 of 2021 and continues through Term 1 of 2022, observing the January school holidays in NSW and the ACT. The event dates will be in the calendar page and is updated for the new season.
Please note, that for this season (2021-2022), all athletes in the U6 to U17 age groups will commence at 8.30am every Saturday.
Do you have a 3-5 year-old? You might like to consider our Tiny Tots program. We ran our first Tiny Tots program in 2019 and it was well received.
Active kids voucher
We are an approved provider for the NSW Government Active Kids Voucher. During the registration process you may see an option to add the Active Kids voucher. If you select this option please be aware that your child WILL NOT be a financial member until the voucher has been processed.
Family, Fun and Fitness
Queanbeyan Little Athletics Centre (QLAC), also known as Queanbeyan Lightning, is for:
Family – Parents assisting with activities. There’s more information about being a parent volunteer, the role of parents and FAQs. AND WE NEED YOUR HELP TO KEEP OUR CLUB ALIVE!
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.
Last season QLAC had more than 200 Little Athletes at Wright Park, many Personal Bests (PBs), parent helpers (essential) and a number of club records broken. We look forward to seeing everyone back for the new season.
Financing our Operations
QLAC is committed to keeping registration fees and uniform costs as low as possible so that all children can take part. To achieve this aim, parents run a canteen and fundraisers to support the costs of affiliation (about 3/4 of the registration fees go on affiliation).
