Tea Tree Gully Little Athletics Centre
Banksia Park, S.A. 5091
The Tea Tree Gully Little Athletics Centre (TTGLAC) is an organisation formed to provide opportunities for young people from the ages of 3 - 17 to develop skills in track & field athletics and aid motor skill & co-ordination development in a fun family environment.
Little Athletics covers all the normal activities that children enjoy, like running, throwing and jumping. What we do is provide these activities in a more structured manner. All athletes are encouraged to participate in all the events offered each day. The emphasis in Little Athletics is on enjoyment, improvement and sportsmanship.
What is Little Athletics all about?
It is all about fun, making friends, family participation and healthy activities. If you thought it's just for kids, you are about to find out why the philosophy of Little Athletics is:
in a supportive and friendly atmosphere
Little Athletes come in all shapes and sizes, and quite varied levels of ability. However, every Little Athlete is a winner when they compete. Personal improvement rather than winning is one of our fundamental aims and should be encouraged.
Our Centre, like all other Centres, is affiliated with the South Australian Little Athletics Association (SALAA). The Association organises various major athletic meetings during the year including championships. All athletes have the opportunity to compete at the SANTOS Sports Stadium, covering Relay Championships, Personal Best Day, Regional Day, Multi-Event Championships and State Individual Championships in the summer season and Cross Country in the winter season.
Check our Calendar for key events. We do our best to present a correct and up-to-date Calendar but please verify important dates independently.
A number of different methods are being considered to enable our members to obtain regular updates. They are currently under test.
