Welcome to Summervale Little Athletics Club

Summervale Club is one of six clubs which forms the South Launceston Little Athletics Centre whose home is the professional athletics track at St Leonards. Last season we had 50 athletes in our club.

We have a strong focus on representing the philosophy of Fun, Family & Fitness, and children are encouraged to achieve PBs no matter what their level of fitness or goals. It is a supportive environment throughout the whole of the South Launceston Little Athletic Centre at St Leonards – and Summervale Club is part of that environment.

Training

During the season from October to March, Summervale Club train at the South Launceston Football Club oval, Youngtown on Mondays, between 5pm and 6 pm.

Any additional pre-season training is arranged independently through the Secretary and Coach.

Club Uniform

Summervale Club members wear orange and black. The shorts are plain black combined with tops of orange with black trim. An order must be placed for these at the time of registration.

Sponsorship and name badges are provided at the beginning of the season on the receipt of full registration.

The placement of these badges are detailed in the Information Manual which is provided in your season starter kit.

Registrations & General Info

For information on registering your family, please contact any one of our committee members. We encourage you to let us know of your interest early.

Little Athletics Tasmania allow each athlete two free meets prior to paying full registrations, to allow each child to experience this opportunity. We too, at Summervale Club, encourage this.

Rules and Regulations and all relevant information are available in the Information Manual. Any questions, however, you may have in regard to the season and events, the committee will be happy to answer at any time.

As you will also see by browsing this official website, sllac.org.au, there is much fun and interaction that goes with being part of Little Athletics. Many businesses sponsor our events, and we encourage our members to support them. You will also see we have photographs taken weekly with our children and their results posted weekly to help you take an interest in their PBs (personal best achievements).

Club Awards

Each season the committee form to decide on the awards for the season. The awards given reflect the centre and state values: fun, family and fitness, personal best achievements and some individual awards.

These are presented at the end of season at a fun gathering which forms part of our AGM.

Team Representatives

For those more serious athletes, there are plenty of opportunities to aim for high levels from the platform of our weekly Little Athletics program.

For more information on this, please feel free to ask our committee members.

Come Join & Celebrate

Please contact any one of our committee members for information on the season. Be open to coming and try a weekly meet to see what you think. Let one of us know so that we can ensure you are given full opportunities on the day. Come and try. Build on friendships, both children and adults alike, for these friendships formed are often those that take you through life.

Let’s celebrate together our children’s achievements, great and small.
