When Do We Compete?

Our competition time for all age groups is generally Friday evenings from 5:15PM at Alder Park New Lambton.

Tiny Tots is generally complete by about 6:30PM and these children participate in long jump, throws, mini hurdles and running activities without results being recorded. Many of the older age groups do not finish until about 7:30 - 8:00PM, with all age groups from U/6 to U/17 and senior/open age athletes doing structured athletics events.

Parent Help

Little Athletics can only run with the participation of parents. It is expected and indeed essential that parents and/or carers become involved in helping with the running of events. There is a requirement for each family to provide assistance during the season in order for their children to qualify for end of season awards at the Presentation. The level of assistance is not too onerous.

Duties include Age Marshalling, Timekeeping, Place Judging, Equipment Set Up, Equipment Pack Up, Canteen, BBQ etc. It is a requirement that each family will perform at least 5 duties during the course of the season. You can sign on for duties at each club meet by seeing one of the committee members near the canteen before the start of competition.

It is a requirement that all children be accompanied by an adult at the ground while they are competing. Parents are not to leave their children unattended at the park.

We intend to run some specific orientation sessions at the commencement of competition this year in order to assist parent is understanding specific events.

Please see the “Parent guide - How to help at athletics ANLAC” booklet.

Other Events

Little Athletics offers a chance to compete beyond the club level if you like. You don’t need to be a star to compete at these events – it’s just a great way to meet some new friends and have even more fun with your athletics.

A number of key events are:

  • Port Hunter Zone Multi Event – 11th November 2018, Raymond Terrace - Vi Barnett Field
  • Port Hunter Zone Championships – 1st & 2nd December 2018, Raymond Terrace - Vi Barnett Field
  • LANSW Region 2 Championships – 8th, 9th & 10th February 2019, Glendale Athletics Centre
  • LANSW State Championships – 15th, 16th & 17th March 2019, Sydney, Olympic Park

Once again, your help will be vital if your child competes at these events.

In addition, other clubs run gala events throughout the year, some of which are noted in our Club Website and will be posted through the social media chanels.

 

Presentation

We will hold a presentation evening usually in early April – the date and venue are yet to be confirmed.

5 Parent Helps must be recorded and athletes must typically attend for 70% of the possible club competition meets following their registration to qualify for awards, trophies, medals and the like. We do try and be flexible with this however there must be some cut off to ensure some value is placed on the awards. Again, more detailed information is available on our web site.

 

Please Remember.....

Little Athletics is centred on the mantra of participation and enjoyment and the vast majority of our members are unlikely to achieve success at a high level. Many have no such aspirations and are more than happy just being part of the great social group that we have. Our aim is to provide a relaxed and fun environment with an emphasis on participation while also providing suitable encouragement and assistance to those who wish to extend their ability. This philosophy has proven extremely successful over the past few years during which we have seen high numbers of athletes at our club as well as having great success at higher levels of competition. Whether you are a parent, other family member or competitor - Don't take it too seriously. Focus on fun and enjoyment.

Above all, enjoy your season. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask a committee member.
