Safety Issues

Like all organisations, Little Athletics has rules. These rules are there to ensure the safety of all athletes, parents and visitors. We ask children and parents to cooperate and to keep to the rules so that we can all enjoy our Friday nights in safety. All athletes must be registered with LANSW before they participate.

Working with Children

Of utmost importance is the safety and well-being of all children and adults. Persons holding certain positions will be required to sign a member protection declaration form. Additionally we ask all parents to be vigilant and report to the committee anything they feel is of concern in regards to the safety of children.

No Smoking & Alcohol

There is a strict no smoking and no alcohol policy at Westlakes Athletics Club. There is a designated area near the car park, where you are able to smoke.. There is no alcohol to be consumed on the grounds.


All registered athletes and parent volunteers who sign on at the equipment shed are covered by insurance taken out by Little Athletics Australia. If a parent fails to sign the attendance register, they are not covered by insurance and not permitted on the field.

Lost Property

Our lost property collection can be found at the canteen. Please check regularly for any missing hats, jumpers, shoes etc. The collection of lost property operates under an honor system. Westlakes Athletics Club will endeavor to return items which are clearly marked to their owners, but the lost property container will periodically be cleaned out and any unmarked or unclaimed items will be donated to charity.
