How to join Algester Little Athletics
As a summer centre, Algester Little Athletics operates from late August through to March every year, with time off over the Christmas break. We have approximately 20 competition weeks each season. Our sign on days usually occur in August each year, so please monitor our Facebook page and website for details about upcoming sign-on dates. We hold our sign-on days at the Centre at Col Bennett Park, although on-line registration is also possible.
Joining Algester Little Athletics is simple!
Joining our Centre is as easy as attending one of our sign on days! If you are new to our Centre, please bring a birth certificate or passport showing your child's date of birth. You only need to bring this once. You can fill in the registration form on-line and bring it with you, or fill it in when you arrive. Registration fees must be paid at the time of registration or in advance by direct deposit. Unfortunately, we do not allow payment by instalments or delayed payments, and fees must have been paid in full before our first competition day. Details of our fees are available by clicking on this link.
To register electronically, please fill in the registration form and email it to us at . It will be necessary to pay your registration fees by direct deposit in advance or in person at one of our sign-on or competition days (EFTPOS is available). If you register via email, please ensure that you collect your registration bag, which will include your age patch, season registration number and other information, and to present your birth certificate or passport if you are new to the Centre.
Uniform items will be available for purchase from our uniform shop or can be ordered in advance by filling in the uniform order form and emailing it to us. We will contact you to arrange collection of your uniform.
We love to share pictures on our social media and newsletters of our athletes' successes, achievements or of the kids just having fun. We understand that some families do not like photographs of their children being shared for various reasons, so we ask that new families please complete the photograph consent form so we can update our records.
Please refer to the table at the bottom of the page to find out which age group your child is in for the 2021/22 season:
For new athletes to our Centre, a birth certificate or passport must be sighted by the Registrar at the time of registration, so please bring it with you!
