Clarence Little Athletics Centre (CLAC) was founded in the 1978/78 season. We are one of the largest Little Athletics centres in Tasmania, having around 200 registered athletes each year.
CLAC meets through summer at Clarence High School in Bellerive on the Eastern Shore of Hobart, primarily on Saturdays but also some midweek twilight meets. We cater for children from the age of 5 through to 14 (December 31 each year), and we have a Tiny Tots program for the 3 & 4 year old younger siblings.
CLAC caters for athletes regardless of background, ability, race, or disability. The mantra of “Family Fun & Fitness” will always be our primary aim – that is participation & personal improvement are our over-riding priorities in running our club. However, we are very proud of the many athletes & parents who have come through our centre who have represented Australia in athletics, including the Olympics, made national sporting teams in other sports, represented our state in various age groups, or who have made contributions as officials or organisers at various levels of athletics.
