Warm Up: From 5:45 pm
  • Tiny Tots – U7 6.00pm—7.30pm

U6-U17: Each Friday evening begins with any important announcements. Before the announcements, the athletes are to meet in front of the baskets, at the 70m line. The athletes must wait for their age manager in their appropriate age groups then they will be taken to their various events throughout the evening.
Tiny Tots: Each Friday evening Tint Tots will meet at the 70m line. Tiny Tots then head out to the western end of the field to complete various activities such as; running, jumping, throwing in a modified form, taking into consideration the developmental stage and requirements of such young children. The program encompasses games and activities that have been designed to prepare Tiny Tots for their introduction to athletics in the U6 age group.
Uniform: All children must wear a centre uniform with registration numbers and age numbers.
Wet Weather: If it has been raining during the week or on Friday afternoon and you are not sure if our weekly competition will be on, we will attempt to have the information on our website and Facebook page close to 5pm.
Emails: Emails are sometimes sent to some or all members through our clubs online system. These emails contain important information such as carnival entry dates, re-registration details and LANSW (Little Athletics NSW) championship information. If you select ‘NO’ to the mailing list option for your child/ren when you complete your online registration you will not receive these important details.
Parent Participation: So that athletics is as enjoyable and well run as possible for your children, WE ENCOURAGE, AND NEED YOUR HELP! Don’t worry if you feel you may not know enough to assist. There is always someone who will show you. Parents can help with measuring throws or jumps and timing races. For smooth operation it is essential that parents assist in whatever capacity they feel comfortable. During competition parents and/or guardians must stay at the ground with their child/ren. Do not drop your child/ ren off and leave. Unsupervised child/ren can, and will, be excluded from competition. Parents are asked to actively participate in the operation of the centre by assisting in the running of events at our regular weekly competitions. We have a parent roster.

  • Where to meet: With the exception of parents on set-up duty (who are required at 5.15pm) all other parents are required to meet at 5.45pm at the equipment shed, to get a brief run down on the night ahead.
  • Uniform: You will be given a bright orange vest to wear, so you are easily identifiable to athletes.
