Registration Information

In light of the current Covid-19 outbreak in Greater Sydney, and the affected LGA of Canterbury-Bankstown, the Committee has taken the decision to postpone registration for the upcoming 21/22 season until further advice regarding Community Sport has been received from the NSW Government.

We will keep you updated with information as it becomes available to us and look forward to opening registrations as soon as possible.

In the meantime, we hope you’re all ready to cheer on the Aussies in Tokyo, starting with the Olympics on 30 July followed by the Paralympics on 27 August! A large number of the Olympians and Paralympians started their Athletics journeys through Little Athletics!

Please look after yourselves and stay at home – we hope to see you at Campbell Field in the not-too-distant future!

Winter Squads and Skills Training is Here!

CLAC is introducing two Winter training options for our athletes, to hone their skills for the school carnival season and to get ready for our Little Athletics season that will start in September.

The Winter Skills Program will focus on age appropriate, fundamental skill acquisition and development across all athletics events. The focus for participants will be on running, jumping and throwing game play, coupled with technical skills. We will work on one ever per session, rotating across all events. This program is open to all athletes from U6 and above (based on your 2020/21 age group).

Winter Squads will provide an opportunity for athletes to specialise their training within either Middle Distance/Distance or Javelin. Squads is open to athletes aged U11 and above (based on your 2020/21 age group) and is subject to selection.

Numbers are limited for all winter training. Registration and further information including schedules and costs can be found by following the links.

20/21 State Qualifiers

The LANSW State Championships were a little different this year due to Covid-19, with 2 competitions held over 2 weekends in March.  We need to make special mention of our younger state qualifiers in the U9-U12 age groups who competed in torrential rain at Sydney Olympic Park on the 20th and 21st of March.  Despite the awful conditions they managed to come away with 7 medals and 15 top 10 finishes.  Congratulations also go to our older athletes in the U13-U17 age groups who competed the following weekend, fortunately in much better conditions! 

Each year we like to acknowledge the amazing achievements of our State Qualifying athletes.  We are incredibly proud of each and every one of your performances!

Amended AGM Notification, Call for Nominations, AGM RSVP

It’s been brought to our attention that there was an error in our first AGM Notification and Call for Nominations.

The AGM Notification and Call for Nominations was circulated on 30 March declaring the Vice President, Registrar and Treasurer executive roles open for nomination. In error, we missed declaring the Secretary position open.

To avoid rescheduling the AGM (and Committee Planning Day), LANSW have agreed that as there is still sufficient time prior to the AGM, the most practical way forward is to provide this amended notification to declare the role of Secretary open for nomination.

The following terms apply to the Executive Positions that are open for nomination:

  • Vice President – 2 Year Term
  • Registrar – 2 Year Term
  • Secretary – 2 Year Term
  • Treasurer – 1 Year Term

We welcome your nomination for either an Executive Committee, General Committee or Age Manager position by completing the nomination form found on the respective link. Committee Position Descriptions are also available. 

As a reminder, the AGM will take place at 1.30pm on Sunday, 16 May 2021 at:

  • Wests Ashfield Leagues Club
  • 115 Liverpool Road
  • Ashfield

Please follow the links to the 2021 AGM Agenda and the 2020 AGM Minutes.

If you’re planning to attend the AGM, can you please RSVP at the following linkhttps://forms.gle/h842fRiQWGFVQgHR7

Any questions can be sent to our Secretary, Rosa Reitano at secretary@clac.org.au.

Thanks in advance for your support.
