CLAC has a great team of coaches to support our athletes through regular training sessions. Meet our Coaching Team here.

The focus for CLAC training is technique and skill acquisition across the event groups. Attendance at training is not compulsory but it’s highly recommended for athletes to learn how to perform and improve in their events in a smaller group setting.

Training takes place on Monday and Wednesday evenings, commencing at 5.30pm. The schedule will be subject to coach availability and athlete demand and updates will be circulated via TeamApp. All attendees are to check in via the onsite QR code – this applies to both athletes and parents/carers.

The first night of training for Season 2020/21 is Monday, 21 September.

Sunday Skills Clinics will not run this season. In their place will be the attendance of coaches at our Friday night competitions, offering feedback and technical support in a competition setting.

No training will be held during school holidays or on public holidays unless otherwise communicated.

Training is offered at Campbell Field for U8 and above only. If younger siblings are present at training, children must be supervised by a parent/carer off the field. A parent/carer must be present at the ground at all times during training. If a child is found present without supervision, they will be unable to participate in the training session and a parent/carer will be called to collect them.

Unfortunately parents are not able to participate in the training sessions as athletes.

Little Athletics NSW have a large range of coaching resources available on their website to give you an overview and introduction to athletics events. You can access these here.

  • Only registered athletes are permitted to attend training sessions.
  • All attendees (both athletes and parents/carers) are to check in via the onsite QR code to have their attendance recorded. This is for both COVID tracing and insurance purposes. Spectators and/or children not participating in training must not be on the field.
