Welcome Athletes & Parents
Welcome to the 2019-2020 season at Basin Little Athletics Centre.
We would like to welcome new members to our centre and welcome back athletes and parents that are returning from last season.
This year all registrations will be done online. To do this visit https://memberdesq.sportstg.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=main&OrgID=914
Registration numbers can be collected – On a Thursday night from the canteen
Each Thursday starting on 17/10/2019 we will meet at 5:30pm at the equipment shed to collect the running sheets.
Your children will need help to complete their events each week and the more parents the better.
To our athletes most of our season recognises participation and improvement. Awards are given out at the end of year for overall improvement rather than being the best.
The most important thing of all is for the children to look forward to coming each week and to enjoy competing.
RUN for FUN! Is the motto we use.
Our annual Dragon Derby Gala Day is on the 10th November 2019. Please come and support your local club. It is a fun day with competitors coming from other clubs within our zone and even some people traveling down from Sydney.
Good luck to all members over the coming season. We look forward to seeing you enjoying yourselves. Athletes and parents – have FUN!!!

Changes to the 2015-2016 Season
This season the Little Athletics Association of NSW and Little Athletics Australia have implemented the following rule changes:
1. Under 11 age group is the youngest age group to wear Spiked shoes.
2. High Jump – Under 9 must do scissors in this event.
Following on from this, from the beginning of 2016 – 2017 season, the Under 10’s WILL ONLY be allowed to do the scissors. This mean under 9’s and 10’s must do the scissors.
3. Under 11’s will now be permitted to throw a Javelin. The weight will be 400gms
As these rule changes have come from the Australian Little Athletics Union, they are not negotiable and cannot be changed by the Association or Centre.
