Shield Meets

Queensland Athletics conduct Shield Meet competitions where Jimboomba Athletics competes as a team with each athlete scoring points depending on their age and resulting position.

Shield Meets not only offer a great team building and competition experience - they also offer opportunities to meet qualifying times and distances for the Queensland State Championships and Athletics Australia's national competitions.

Senior Club

Senior Club (also know as Jimboomba Athletics) is available to all athletes turning 12 by December 31 in the calendar year.


Senior Club athletes can compete each Friday at Jimboomba in the U12 - U20 age groups.

Additionally QA and AA competitions provide excellent experience and opportunities for athletes wanting to pursue their own athletics goals alongside some of Australia's most talented sports men and women. Athletes compete at major sporting venues around Brisbane including QSAC, UQ, Griffith University on the Gold Coast, and the Sunshine Coast University. Nominations for each event are taken online and athletes can choose which competition and which events they wish to enter. QA State Championships are held at the end of the year with the first 3 place getters in each event moving on to Nationals. Additionally athletes meeting qualifying times and distances can also move on to Nationals.

Travel funding can also be sourced by families for travelling athletes.
Contact the Queensland Government for more information.


Pole Vault, Hammer and Steeple Chase
By joining the Senior Club, athletes have access to events which are not included in Little Athletics such as pole vault, hammer and steeple chase.

Jimboomba Athletics uniquely have access to pole vault equipment and coaches. For athletes wanting to try something very different, training is available and our athletes have traditionally been very successful in QA and AA competitions.
