About us

Murrumbateman Stormers are the newest Little Athletics Club in the Canberra region. Conceived and built by a small but committed group of volunteers in October 2019, the Club has been a huge success and grown very quickly.

Meets are held every Wednesday during the season (excluding school holidays) from 6pm until approx. 7.30pm (Tiny Tots 5.30pm – 6pm) and the season runs from October to March each year (breaking for Christmas and January school holidays).

We are a very family-oriented club and encourage parents helping out as much as possible to ensure the smooth running of our events.

We provide an interactive environment for kids to learn, have fun and get fit, but also to encourage them to enjoy a healthy competition at all levels in athletics from club level through to ACT Championships.

We pride ourselves on being one of the fastest growing athletics clubs in the Canberra region and hope to continue to grow and improve with our local community.

Parental involvement

We encourage at least one parent per family to provide assistance in the form of simple tasks such as time-keeping, measuring and recording results at every meet. No previous experience is necessary. Experienced club officials will be on hand to help.

Set Up Roster season 22/23 (To be updated)

We are so excited to be able to bring to you a full 16 weeks of Little Athletics for our 22/23 season. 

As we have grown considerably in numbers, and we now are able to offer every event possible to all the athletes we have quite a bit of set up and pack down to do. 

We have created a “Set up” roster that will require you to turn up at 5.30 on training nights (on your rostered night) to assist in the set up. 

Please head straight to the container where you will be greeted by a volunteer that can assist you to acquire the equipment you need and take it to its designated spot on the field. 

If an age group does not turn up early to set up the field then it will be the responsibility of each age group to set up their own event and this will result in a late start and late finish, not ideal. 

Pack down is everyone’s responsibility. Your age manager will advise you when your age group has finished their last event and then you can return the equipment to the container. 

We greatly appreciate your assistance with this, working together as a community ensures that there is ample time to chat around a $2 sausage sizzle dinner and everyone can leave before dark.  

Coming soon – updated set up roster

Age Managers

The main duty of the Age Manager is to keep the group together and move from event to event quickly and and ensure that parents assist in the many facets of running athletic events. It does not require any technical knowledge with respect to coaching the children.
