HOW DOES ATHLETICS WORK IN THE ACT?

There are several avenues to join athletics in the ACT and Region.

Little Athletics
Is a Centre based approach to join from 5 to 16 years and compete weekly at the local level and coming together with other Clubs in the Little Athletics Regional and State Championships - October to March each year. Athlets turning 12 before December 31st each year may join a senior club as a DUAL athlete and compete as a transitioning athlete to seniors.

Junior Athletics/Senior
Also a Club based approach, less structured situation where athletes may join a Club affiliated with the State athletics association Athletics ACT. Competition is organised over Summer Series and the Winter High Noon sessions by Athletics ACT. Athletes register with a Senior Club such as North Canberra-Gungahlin Athletics Club. Athletes should be turning 12 before December 31st the year they join. There is no age limit to senior athletics.

School athletics
A compulsory activity that schools after their local carnival send their students to the Zone carnival (region) and potentially further on to the State Championships finals. If selected from the ACT Championships the student is asked to register with a Club in order to compete at the Australian All Schools National Championships.
