Registration Information



 Age Group Grid 2020/21


Whether you are a new or a returning member this page provides information regarding registration at Glenbrook Little Athletics Centre.

 

How do I register?

1. Firstly, registrations must be completed online this year. Registration is now open ONLINE for the up and coming 2020/2021 season. All athletes must be registered ONLINE prior to registration pick up.

2. Then, come to one of our pick up days to pick up your number patches, handbook and purchase uniforms. Pick up days at Glenbrook Oval are: 

Saturday 5th September 2020 (A-K surnames)

Saturday 19th September 2020 (L-Z surnames)

 

What ages can register?

Registrations at Glenbrook start at the Tiny Tot (3-4yr olds) and goes through to the under twenty (U20) age group. An age grid file that allows you to see what age group the athlete will fall into and, if the child is too young or too old to compete at Glenbrook is available by clicking AGE GROUP GRID above. An athlete TOO OLD for LANSW U17s can register with Athletics NSW in the U20 age group. *** Please note that all new athletes will be required to provide proof of age (Birth Certificate, Passport, Blue book etc).

 

What about Tiny Tots?

Tiny Tots caters for both three and four year olds. But children MUST have turned three years of age before their registration can be accepted (i.e. children who are still two years of age at the beginning of the season but turn three during October to December, cannot join Little Athletics until their third birthday).

 

Do I have to register to compete?

It is compulsory to register with Glenbrook to compete at our centre. There is an exception for registered members of other Little Athletics Centre's who may compete at our centre as a visitor.

 

How much does it cost to register?

The committee of Glenbrook consider a number of factors each year in determining our registration fees. Charges passed onto us from Little Athletics NSW and Blue Mountains City Council must be considered along with other running costs associated with the Centre such as equipment upkeep, trophies etc.

The Registration fees for the 2020/21 season are: 

Tiny Tots:                    $90.00

Under 6:                      $110.00

Under 7 to Under 17:    $130.00

Under 20 (Athletics NSW): $130.00

For families with 4 or more children who wish to register Glenbrook will register the 4th (or additional children) for free. Please note that the three oldest children will be the ones charged the registration fee and ONLY includes athletes in the Tots - U17 age groups. All registration fees must be paid in full before athletes will be allowed to compete.

 

Parent Involvement

Glenbrook Little Athletics centre is run entirely by volunteers. The Centre could not run without the support and assistance of parents. The saying, many hands make light work is true for Little Athletics, the more helpers we have the less work everyone needs to do. It is for this reason we ask that every parent/guardian provides some assistance at our Saturday competition.  We only ask that you do what you are able and there is always a committee member around who is more than happy to answer your questions or show you what to do.

We do require that a parent/guardian is present at any activity that is conducted by the Centre. This includes Saturday competition and training.

Glenbrook Little Athletics supports Federal and New South Wales legislation in regards to child protection. We may require a Working with Children Check to be completed.
