Age groups for 2019/2020 season - as at 31 December
From the commencement of the 2018/2019 competition season, Little Athletics Australia changed the date on which it determines its age groups to be in line with Athletics Australia. This means, that your child's age group for the 2019-2020 season is determined by their age as at 31 December 2019. To see which age group your child should be in based on their year of birth, please click here.
Maximum age group capacity and waiting lists
The Balmain Little Athletics Committee is concerned about the safety of all our athletes at King George Oval and the level of enjoyment for each child and parent/caregiver in large groups of athletes. As a result, age groups are closed when the number of registered athletes reaches 55.
After an age group is closed, we will open a waiting list. These lists will be maintained until mid-December unless the number of athletes on the waiting list reaches 20. Athletes may be invited to register at a reduced registration fee in January (mid season). This is at the discretion of the Balmain Little Athletics Committee. Please be aware that all members of the Committee are volunteers, as are all our age managers.
For the 2019/2020 season, an early bird registration fee of $125 applied from 1 August until 5pm on 31 August. After that the registration fee increased to $145. For U12s to U17s this fee includes membership of the Balmain Athletics Club which allows athletes to compete at all Athletics NSW competitions.

Two registration collection days were held at King George Oval, Manning street, Rozelle on Saturday 7 September and Saturday 14 September from 1-3pm.
