U13 Sportsmanship Award
Each year one boy and one girl are awarded the SLLAC Sportsmanship Award. The recipients of these awards are automatically nominated as SLLAC representatives for the TLAA Sportsmanship Award. All under 13 athletes that have participated at South Launceston Centre for a minimum of 3 seasons will be eligible for consideration. Full criteria for the award can be found in our bylaws.
Congratulations to Josh Harris and Alicia Hollingworth for being awarded the 2017-18 Sportsmanship Awards.
Chad Douglas Memorial Trophy
The Chad Douglas Award is in recognition of a former South Launceston Little Athlete, who sadly passed away during his Under 9 year. Although not the best athlete in his age group, Chad consistently attended Little Athletics each week, simply to compete, make friends, have fun and strive to improve on his personal bests. He displayed qualities of a good sportsman by showing concern and respect for both fellow athletes and officials. Chad truly subscribed to the motto of Little Athletics, “Family, Fun and Fitness”. Brett Gillow, a good friend, created this trophy in Chad’s memory and each season presents it to an athlete, either male or female, from the current Under 9 age group. The recipient must possess similar characteristics to Chad and have competed at the Centre for three years, with a consistently high attendance rate.

Life membership is the highest honour of any organisation. South Launceston Little Athletics is a strong believer in this and therefore if Life Membership is awarded you can be sure it is for a good reason.
In 2012/13 Dean Wadley was awarded Life Membership following over 10 years association with South Launceston and taking on many positions including a stint as President.
