Welcome to Glen Dhu Little Athletics Club

We are one of the original inception clubs of the South Launceston Little Athletics Centre.

We have a strong committee, who together with our athletes’ families are committed to ensuring our children can achieve their personal best in a nurturing environment whilst encompassing the Little Athletics motto of “Family, Fun and Fitness”

We have strong links with the Glen Dhu Primary School, East Launceston Primary and Launceston Church Grammar where a large proportion of our members are drawn from. We welcome any new athletes to come along and be part of our wonderful club.

Training

Training will start on Wednesday 20th September 2017 from 5-6pm at the South Launceston Football ground, Youngtown.

This year we have some “experts” in attendance at training, who specialise in certain track and field events. These “experts” will teach the children the correct warm ups and techniques for those events. A calendar of those dates will be released soon.

We will also train for the weeks upcoming events.


Club Uniform

Our team colours are light blue and navy.

Shorts are navy blue. Tops are light blue/navy stripped. The boys wear a singlet top, while the girls have the choice of a crop top or the singlet top.

Tops can be purchased at training for $30.00 each, just see Belinda Jones or Mel Wilcox
