Golden Plains Little Athletics Club


Do Your Kids Want To Try Athletics?
How about joining a Club that supports children, of all abilities, not only gain skills in athletic events, but have improved self-confidence and make new friendships?


The Golden Plains Little Athletics Club welcomes all children (aged 5yrs to 15yrs), and caters for children with disabilities. The focus is on fun, family and friendship.  The children learn skills in both track (running, hurdles, walks) and field (including shotput, long jump, high jump, discus); and the focus is on your children seeing their own Personal Best (PB) performances improve!

The Athletics season runs from October to March with friendly competition on Saturday mornings at Corio Little Athletics Centre, Goldsworthy Reserve, Corio.  

Our Club’s volunteer committee, athletes and families wish to express how proud we are that Damien Birkinhead, who was a member of our Golden Plains Little Athletics Club in his junior years, having just represented Australia by competing in the Olympic Games in Rio in Shotput this year, not only got to the finals in his event, but is now 10th ranked shotput athlete in the world!! Wow! 

What an exciting time it is for our Club!  

And to all future local young athletes, why don’t you join us this next season!  

A FREE Fun Skills Training and Information Session is on Sunday 11th September 2016 from 2:30pm to 4:00pm at Teesdale Recreation Oval (Don Wallace Reserve), Teesdale.  – Please contact Michelle Norton (President – Golden Plains Little Athletics Club) on 0400 595 171 for further information.  

We encourage all our members to follow our Club motto of “Do Your Best – Be Your Best”!

See you there!
