The registration fee is $195 for the first child, $185 for the second and $175 for the third child, with a maximum family registration amount of $650. Four-year-olds may only participate in our Tiny Tots program if they have older siblings registered in the U6-U17 age groups. Our Tiny Tot fee is $80.
In addition, there is a $80 parent helper levy. This is fully refunded if you help out in some way at 50% of Friday night competitions (usually 12 nights). As we (like other Little Athletics clubs) depend entirely on volunteer input, we need parent helpers to assist with a number of fairly easy tasks each week to allow competition to take place. Just don’t forget to sign your parent helper book each time you help out!
There is government funding assistance for eligible athletes/families through the ‘Get in the Game’ funding program. Details can be found at:
