Registrations

Thank you to everyone for their support during the COVID impacted 2020/2021 season. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to King George Oval, Rozelle for the 50th season of athletics in Balmain!

Athletics is a summer sport with the season running from September to March. Registration usually opens in early August via the Little Athletics NSW website. Note many of our younger age groups (including 4 year old Tot/Tiger Cubs program, U6 to U10) fill up quickly and close before the start of the season.

To keep up to date with the Club, visit our publicly accessible Facebook page. 

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 or closed when 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.
