The season finishes with the Cross Country Championships on Sunday 23 July at Mid Coast LAC, Tatachilla Lutheran College, Tatachilla. Qualifying criteria applies, go to the SALAA website for all the details.

- SA ATHLETICS ACADEMY
South Australia’s Athletics Academy is a junior development program that has been developed by Athletics South Australia and Little Athletics South Australia, to provide all young athletes from 9 to 19 years of age the opportunity to take their athletics to the next level!

Sessions are held every 3-4 weeks commencing Sunday 30 April. Read the Information Booklet and go to SALAA website for all the details.

A GGLAC athlete did this program last year and her mum told us "We can recommend it for anyone who wants to keep their skills up in the off season. 2 hours per month on a Sunday afternoon. They do a fitness test at the beginning and end of the program so there's something to work towards. It also gives them extra practice on the rubber in a relaxed environment and learning different drills and performance tips. As a bonus they met some athletes that have been to the Olympics! And of course there's the opportunity to make new friends that they see throughout the summer at comps."

COMMITTEE 2017/2018
Whilst a new committee was elected at the AGM, the roles everyone will have next season will be decided at our first meeting in May and posted to the website by the end of May.
