Our athletes perform a range of events every Friday night and have opportunities to compete in external competitions and championships.
Weekly Rotation Program
TWLA’s rotation program allows athletes to experience all contested events for their age group over a three week period. For the list of currently contested events for each age group, click here. Please note that we do not include any walks in our program. Walks are very technical in execution and appeal only to a small minority within the Little Athletics community. Also, due to safety reasons, we do not offer javelin in our program. If your child is interested in walks or javelin, we encourage you to speak with the Club President about potential options.
Usually in early February, the Centre hosts its “Club Championships.” On this one Friday night, all age group members participate in four or five pre-determined events for which they are given points based on the State Combined Events point system. The athlete in each age group with the highest number of points is declared the Club Championships winner and recognised at the Centre’s Presentation Night. The Club Championships event table will be posted to Facebook once finalised each season.
The specifications for the various events have varied over the years and are governed by LANSW. The current specifications by age group and event may be found by clicking here .
We update the competition schedules annually to accommodate changes to events offered, age groups represented and numbers per age group. For this season’s competition schedule, with approximate start times, click here. Event tables are subject to change given weather or field conditions or as needed in the Committee’s sole discretion.
External Events and Competitions
LANSW and other centres host various championships and events that are available to TWLA members. For more information, click here. Athletes who are 10 years old or in the U11-U17 age groups , are automatically granted a free dual membership with Athletics NSW (ANSW) and may participate in ANSW senior club events across the state at a nominal cost. Athletes either enter directly according to the instructions for each event or through their senior club. For more information, please contact the Club President.
