Welcome to South Coast Athletics

Registrations for the 2017/18 season will open on 1st September 2017. You must register via the www.salaa.org.au website.

On the SALAA website you go to ‘Find a Centre’ then choose South Coast. If you have any problems please let us know.

South Coast Athletics Centre (SCAC) encourages people of all ages, regardless of ability, to strive to achieve their best in a full range of athletic events.

Tiny Tots, ages 3 to 5, are also encouraged to join in a special fun/games/skills based program.

The emphasis is on fun, fitness and improvement. All events use equipment specifically designed to be appropriate to the size and ability of the athlete as sanctioned by SALAA and ASA.
 

Competition events

  • Running – sprints, middle distance and long distance
  • Hurdles
  • Jumps – long jump, triple jump and high jump
  • Throws – discus, shot put, javelin and vortex
  • Walk

It is safe, fun and develops all round fitness.

All track and field events are timed/measured (except for Tiny Tots).  At the end of each meet the results are uploaded to Results HQ  where athletes can access their results with a unique username and password. The focus is on athletes striving to achieve their “personal bests” each week (i.e. winning in not important, but learning/trying your best and “beating yourself” is).

Athletics not only contributes to the development of foundation skills in running, jumping and throwing that will stand children in good stead throughout their life—it also teaches discipline, respect and teamwork.  These skills can take you right through to the Master’s Level, with older athletes offered the opportunity for competition at Adelaide Athletics Stadium with ASA.
