Little Athletics is a summer sport that runs from September to March. We anticipate that the 2018-2019 season will commence on Saturday 15 September 2018, subject to Council approval.
Registration will open on 1 August 2018 via the Little Athletics NSW website. After that date - click here and chose the “Register Now” button. Please note that registrations for our junior age groups fill very quickly. We do not accept registrations or maintain waiting lists before this date.
Age group changes for 2018/2019 season
From the commencement of the 2018/2019 competition season, Little Athletics across Australia is changing the date on which it determines its age groups to 31 December. Age groups for the 2018-2019 season will be determined by the child's age as at 31 December 2018. This means that renewing athletes born between 1 October and 31 December will progress up an additional age group ie two age groups.

Maximum age group capacity and waiting lists
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 60.
After an age group is closed, we will open a waiting list. These lists will be maintained until mid-December. Athletes may be invited to register at a reduced rate in January 2019. This is at the discretion of the Balmain Little Athletics Committee. Please be aware that all members of the Committee are volunteers. Also, all age managers are parent volunteers.
An early bird registration fee of $125 will be available from 1 August until 8pm on 24 August. After that the usual fee of $145 will apply. For the U12s to U17s this fee also includes membership of the Balmain Athletics Club which gives access to Athletics NSW competitions.
Registration packs can be collected and uniforms purchased at King George Oval, Manning street, Rozelle on Saturday 25 August or Saturday 1 September from 1-3pm . All new athletes must bring proof of age documentation (eg birth certificate or passport). A photo on your smartphone is acceptable.
A parent or caregiver from each family (other than age managers) must sign up to assist in the Canteen or on the BBQ once during the season. Please sign up before collecting you registration pack by - following this Sign Up link
