Welcome to the 2022/2023 Little Athletics season. We look forward to another fantastic year.
WEEK 2 - Saturday 24th September
NB - This season, our Saturday morning competition will commence at Barton Park, Gladstone St, North Parramatta. See here for details.
Athletes should meet their Age Manager at their first event.
We need help each week to set up. Parents are rostered to arrive early on 4-5 mornings through the season. Please come down before 7:25am to get your name marked off our list.
Each week we need a parent volunteer to help in the canteen from 10:00am - 12:00pm.
This week's volunteer is to be provided by the 7 Girls.
REGISTRATION PACK AND UNIFORM COLLECTION
Saturday 24th September - 7:15am to 8:00am ONLY
If you have not yet collected your registration pack or need to pick up or purchase a uniform, you can do this on Saturday morning before competition from 7:15-8:00am.
Please note that both our Uniform Officer and Registrar are also Age Managers and will have other duties to fulfil from 8:00am. They will be available again following the morning's competition from about 11:00am. We thank you for your understanding.
** Please remember to bring your Working with Children Declaration Form - available here **
**New Members - Please remember to bring your child's proof of age (either Passport or Birth Certificate).**
Registrations cannot be finalised until the above items have been received.
Collection is available from Barton Park - Gladstone St, North Parramatta.
Should it be raining either on Saturday morning or in the days leading up to competition, the Committee will assess the field and competition conditions. We will either run a Wet Weather amended program or, if the weather is too bad, we may cancel competition for the day.
If the decision is made to cancel, this information will be posted on both the Facebook and Instagram pages by 7:30am. So, keep an eye on these pages. If no announcement is made, then assume we are on!
CANTEEN, BBQ AND COFFEE VAN
The Coffee Van will again be present for that lovely morning hot beverage. The BBQ will be firing and the canteen will be open for cold drinks, sausage sandwiches and yummy snacks!
WE NEED YOUR HELP
Please remember that Little Athletics is run by volunteers and we need your help every Saturday to make it work & deliver a quality program.
Each Age Manager requires the help of four parents to assist with the running of an age group. This involves raking the sand, retrieving the shot/discus in throws and assisting to marshal athletes at the finish line following running events both sprints and long distance. All these jobs are simple to do but are a huge help, making the morning run smoother and reducing the delay between events.
If you see ANYTHING - on or off the field - that you can help with, please jump in and help. It will greatly appreciated.
Please give your time generously to help with set up, pack up, timing and canteen shifts and helping out your age manager. Every little bit helps.UNIFORM
Do you need a new competition singlet or crop top? Visit the online Uniform shop and pre-order your uniform for pick up.
We also have some fabulous NRCLAC branded items available in the Uniform shop. Look great while you represent the club in our new training jacket or baseball cap or cool yourself down on a hot summer morning with our new NRCLAC cooling towel.
