When we return from the Xmas break there will be 6 weeks of Centre competition remaining, just enough for new members to join us and enjoy the fun of athletics. After Xmas fees are lower due to the reduced membership period. Its a great opportunity to get involved and get the new year off to great start! Fees will be announced shortly.
Our Season will kick off this Saturday, 1:00 for registrations, 1:30 for notices and warm ups
At 2.00pm we’ll split into 4 groups of athletes and families to head around the event areas, starting at different points, to show everyone how each event runs.
We’ll give all the athletes some practice and advise parents how they can help to run the events. It’s a great way for athletes to meet others in their new age groups and help families to get familiar with each other ready for the first Comp day on the 26th

Due to the current condition of the oval we are cancelling competition for today. The safety of our athletes and the comfort of our families always comes first. The oval is very wet and, even if the rain stops, won’t dry out enough to hold a safe competition this avy. The competition day won’t be lost, we’ll reschedule it to a reserve day later in the season
Our season will commence with the following dates:
Sunday 21 August – Sign-on session 12:00 – 3:00pm – Sunnybank SHS, Gager Street entrance
27 August – Week 1 Competition 12.45 – 4:00pm
All sessions will be held at our home ground of Sunnybank High School (oval), out in the sunshine and fresh air. There will also be ample shade shelters placed around the oval.
This season we are allowing Mt Gravatt Little Athletics Centre to use our field for their Centre Competition, as they are unable to use their home ground. Their season runs July to December, where ours (and all other South East Queensland Clubs) runs August to March 2023. When we start in August we will all join in together on Saturday afternoons but all of the results will be separate and only count within the individual clubs.
We are excited about this opportunity where our athletes will have fun competing with Mt Gravatt athletes and making new friends at the same time.
Our 2022/2023 Season Information and Sign-on session will be held at Sunnybank High School (oval), Gager St, Sunnybank on Sunday 21 August 2022 from 1200 -1500. On-line registrations will be open 01 August 2022.
