It's not too late to register!
It's not too late to register for the 2013/2014 season! The easiest way to register is ON-LINE. See the Registration page for details.
Alternatively, you can register on your first attendance at competition. Even if you register on-line before hand, it will still be necessary to come to the oval to purchase uniforms (if necessary) and to pick up athlete numbers and age patches, achievement record books and other documentation.

About registration numbers and age patches
New program format
Athletes - please ensure you display your current season registration number patch - please don't compete with last year's number! Parents (mothers, probably) - please ensure that age and rego patches are sewn on with a white border no less than the width of the red line. Check our Uniform
page for more information.
From this season, the Centre will be using a fixed, 4-week rotating program. To ensure that athletes compete in all events in their age group, there are no event choices. The four programs, including two wet-weather schedules, can now be downloaded and athletes and parents are encouraged to review and comment on them via e-mail to email@example.com.
Are you fit to compete?
Age Managers for the coming season
We had a couple of incidents at competition recently with athletes fainting or developing muscle cramps because they hadn't had breakfast or warmed up properly. Parents, please ensure that your athletes have a good breakfast before coming to the oval and make sure they warm up properly before starting competition events, to avoid these problems. Check our Health & Fitness
page for more information.
Expressions of interest are invited from parents to be appointed as Age Managers for the coming summer athletics season.
