About South Australian Masters Athletics

 

SA Masters Athletics (SAMA) was founded in 1971 as the SA Veterans Athletic Club and caters for men and women aged 30 years and above.  While membership is restricted to those over 30, children or grandchildren of members are most welcome to compete with us, as are members of ASA. Only members are eligible for Championships, trophies and prizes.

The main aim of the Club is to provide an ongoing competition program for mature age athletes and to especially cater for people of all athletic abilities.

We meet all year round on a weekly basis, with summer competition each Wednesday evening at SA Athletics Stadium, and each Saturday afternoon during the winter season. Each season (summer and winter), we conduct Championship events which are age graded based on 5 yearly age increments.   Medallions for age group winners and place getters are presented at end of season presentations.

SAMA is affiliated with Australian Masters Athletics Inc and promotes the many Masters Athletics events held throughout Australia and the world.
