NEW REGISTRATIONS PLEASE NOTE:
Canterbury Little Athletics is run entirely by parents and community volunteers.
When signing your child up to Canterbury Little Athletics, you are expected to be involved and you are agreeing to help run our Friday night competitions, by completing parent duties.
If you are looking for an activity where you able able drop your children and then leave, Little Athletics is not for you.
All Parents must be present on the grounds at all times.
Little Athletics NSW do not have any involvement in the day to day running of Canterbury Little Athletics and no one gets paid at our centre. So while you are paying a ‘fee’, please be mindful that this is community run organisation where all of the money goes back into the club. Please do not expect ‘service’ as you would get if you were involved in an activity with a profit making company with paid staff.
While we do our best, we are all volunteers, mainly parents of athletes, with our own families, lives and jobs. So please be mindful of this in your expectations and your interactions with committee members and age managers.
Please be aware that last season we had to close registrations due to large numbers, so get in on the early bird price to avoid disappointment!

Parent Duty Bond (Changes this season):
This season will have online check in for Parent Duties. There will not be sign on sheets, you will be checked in by a committee member or age manager.
Please ensure you check in each night that you complete a duty, for it to be counted. Please sign up to the roster before the night where possible. This makes the administration and waiting times a lot quicker!
When signing up to the parent roster please enter your child/ren’s FULL NAMES, FIRST and LAST NAME, as well as your FULL NAME, FIRST AND LAST NAME. Please register with the same email address you used to register with LANSW. This makes matching your duties to your registration, for refund of duty bonds, much easier.
The Parent Duty Bond is paid each season and refunded at the end of the season when at least 6 duties are completed. The duty bond can not be rolled into the next season.
An email was sent to last years members who completed their duties asking to provide bank details for refund of bonds. If you believe that you completed your duties and did not receive this email, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Family Registration Fees:
These fees include the Parent Duty Bond $50 per family, which will be refunded at the end of the season, if at least 6 duties have been completed.

* In addition to the registration fee the Centre levies a Parent Duty Bond of $50 per family in order to encourage parents to fulfill duties – 6 per season, plus duties at Zone, Region and State where applicable.

This bond is payable at registration and families are eligible for a full refund after completing all duties for the season. Refunds are paid by the end of May, once you have supplied the CLAC treasurer with your bank details. Failure to complete all duties will result in the Centre retaining the Parent Duty Bond.

Changes to Registration Numbers Season 2017/18
This season all athletes in Little Athletics NSW will receive sequential registration numbers, as per dual athletes last season. This change will help officials identify an athlete with ease, as the athlete will have a unique number.
As last season athletes in U12-U17 will automatically be Dual registered with both LANSW and ANSW when they register. During the registration process athletes can nominate a seniors club or choose to remain as an independent athlete. If they wish to change their club affiliation during the season they just need to contact LANSW to do this.
All athletes will receive a unique registration number that they will wear to all LANSW and ANSW events, each athlete will get 3 copies of their number. These numbers will be different to the registration numbers issued to athletes U11 and below.
This season we are collecting more detailed medical information through the online registration form. This will help age managers and First Aid officers have better information when dealing with the athletes and any injuries or medical issues that may arise.
It is very important that parent/carers accurately fill in this information and list any medical issues we may need to be aware of. These may include, but are not limited to epilepsy, bone disorders, asthma, anaphylaxis, arthritic disorders, autism, ADD, heart issues or diabetes.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact email@example.com
