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.
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.
During the 2016-2017 season we had 54 members in our club.

A reminder: If you find yourself travelling away on the weekend but still want to attend Little Athletics, there are Centres all around Australia in which you can sign up as a visitor. So you don’t have to miss out on the fun just because you are away on holiday!
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.
Summervale Club carries the strong colours of red and black. The shorts are plain black combined with tops of red and black in either a polo top of singlet top design. An order must be placed for these at the time of 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).
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.
