General Training Times

Coaching and squad training is generally carried out during the entire year, so as we can also accommodate the School Athletics Calendar and ensure Athletes are ready for these.
Coach enforced rest/recovery periods usually occur at the end of major State or National Championships.

Sessions are held most evenings so as to cater for those Athletes who compete at National Levels.


Although our sessions are stated as being for 12 years and up, consideration may be given to the maturation levels of the athlete bearing in mind that studies have shown, that the occurrence of overuse injuries and burnout are extremely high if children commence a regimen of intense training at an early age with the highest incidence of “tarsal (foot) stress fractures appearing to involve Track and Field followed by football and soccer” (Ostlie DK, Simons SM).

Fees are applicable for squad training and as it is also open to non-members, there is an annual $50 fee per family for non GCLA (Gold Coast Little Athletics) and GCA (Gold Coast Athletics) members which is refundable if joining either Club.

Our coaches do not profit from their services with any fees going towards accommodation and travel to Competitions, State Championships and National Championships. This enables them to be available for warm ups etc. at these meets.
