Golden Plains Little Athletics Club

Do Your Best - Be Your Best
We all know someone who loves the chill of winter and is sad to see it go, but for me, August heralds the start of slightly warmer weather and brings with it an urge to ditch the winter woollies and get outside in the fresh air again. 

As our activity levels increase, so to do our kids’. What better way to let them get out and be active than by joining Golden Plains Little Athletics Club?

Catering for children aged between 5 and 15 years, GPLAC focuses on kids learning new skills, having fun, being active and trying their best. A variety of track and field events are offered each week and members get a chance to have a go at each of them many times throughout the season. 

For children who choose to, there are opportunities to compete in a wide range of extra competitions. For those who just want to attend once a week and enjoy being active, that’s great too!

The athletics season runs from October to March with friendly competition on Saturday mornings at Corio Little Athletics Centre, Goldsworthy Reserve, Corio. At Golden Plains Little Athletics Club we pride ourselves on being welcoming and supportive to all our members no matter what their skills or abilities are. We love seeing self confidence improve, new skills develop and friendships form.

So… If you're wondering if it's worth spending your Saturday mornings in Geelong watching your children at athletics all I can say is ‘Come along and give it a go!’ It's not just the kids who have a great time!

To all future young athletes, no matter what your skill level, we would love for you to come and join us this season. If you have any questions or would like any further information please contact Heather Parkinson (President - GPLAC) on 0403 195 283. 

Keep an eye out for our advertising in the Golden Plains region over the coming weeks.

Our club motto is ‘Do Your Best - Be Your Best’ and we encourage all our members to do just that!
