AGES FOR COMPETITION
(U16 and U17 age groups have been combined into one age group called Under 17s since season 2008/09.)
No child can compete at Douglas Park Centre meetings without first:
1.Providing proof of age documents:
* Birth Certificate
* Statutory Declaration
* Baptism Certificate
* Birth Registration Notification
* Hospital Blue Book
2.Paying the Centre registration fee and being issued with registration and age numbers, which must be correctly worn on the Centre uniform.
Of the REGISTRATION FEE paid to the Centre, an amount per child is forwarded to the Little Athletics Assoc. NSW for administration, coaching, championships, insurance, etc. Some of the registration fee is retained by our Centre to provide equipment and pay general costs such as electricity, printing, track marking, equipment repairs, presentation etc. PLEASE NOTE: Your child will not automatically be awarded a Participation trophy because you have paid for registration. As the name suggests, the Participation trophy is dependent upon a certain level of participation – see the section on Awards.
The Tiny Tots program is a non-competitive program designed to make athletic activities fun and prepare the children for later Little Athletics competition. Due to the large numbers of Tiny Tots and the fact that the children need lots of supervision and assistance, this group needs lots of help from parents. We are always looking for helpers and ideas to incorporate in the program.
U12 to U17 athletes have automatic registration with Little Athletics and Athletics NSW when they register. To activate the dual registration, an athlete (or parent) will need to contact the ‘secondary’ club to obtain athlete number, uniform etc. Be aware that although LAANSW & ANSW will not charge an additional dual registration fee, the Club/Centres concerned might do so.
