Gippsland Athletics says get on board

Gippsland Athletics Club has kicked off its new season at Newborough’s Joe Carmody Athletics Track and is inviting the community to come along and try the sport.

New or potential members can try the activity for two weeks at a cost of $2 before they need to join the club.

The club meets every Tuesday with competition beginning at 6pm.

The club caters for athletes of all abilities, from beginners to national-level competitors.

It offers the opportunity for athletes to compete at their own level while encouraging and assisting their improvement.

Membership is open to anyone aged 11 or older, including a special “dual” category membership for current or recent Little Athletics members.

Each Tuesday the Gippsland Athletics Club runs a program with six events, consisting of three runs, two throws and a jump, but athletes only compete in their choice of events.

The season continues until February next year, but athletes can compete as frequently as they wish.
