Darwin Athletics Club Season 2020 Covid19 Advice for Members, participants, parents, carers and volunteers.
It is with great regret that we announce our 2020 athletics season must be postponed due to Covid19. We have received formal advice from Athletics Australia and Athletics Northern Territory that all organised club activities are to be postponed until 1 May 2020, and reassessed from that time.
All financial members will continue to have access to the track during this period, and we’re happy to assist members with individual training programs. We’re still hopeful that we can continue our season throughout 2020, including the option to extend the season duration beyond the planned end date early September. We will continue to assess options as advice comes to hand, and will endeavour to update members as soon as we receive new information.
On behalf of the committee and coaches, we’re extremely disappointed to have to put a hold on what promised to be an exciting season for DAC, however the health and safety of our members, everyone associated with the club and the wider community is and always will be our top priority. We will endeavour to do all we can to get our 2020 season back on track.
Please keep an eye on facebook or the DAC website for more information. If you have any queries please call Brad Cunnington, DAC President 0427 796 140

Athletics is a sport for all, from the very young, families, masters and athletes with disabilities – we welcome you all and support your path within athletics.
We work closely with Athletics NT, NT School Sports and Athletics Australia to provide pathways for representative sport at each level.
The season starts in March and runs through to September.
We’re located at Arafura Stadium, in the Marrara Sporting Complex. Come down and say hi!
