Athletes must compete in correct age group to achieve a record
Note that during normal Centre competition some exceptional male/female athletes have at times competed in an age group higher, or female athletes have competed against male athletes. However, it is pointed out that, although this competition is welcomed for these exceptional little athletes, no record or personal best (PB) can be claimed. The Centre's Records Officer must be informed of any such attempt, to ensure that the performance (or record) is not considered for a record or season best award.

Standard programs for 2016/2017 season
Once again, 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

Local Officials Mentoring Scheme

Are you fit to compete?

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.

HDLAC Bushfire Survival Plan
If there is a danger of bushfires anywhere in the Lane Cove National Park, we will cancel our athletics competition prior to the Saturday morning competition day. It is likely that a decision to cancel would be made no later than the preceding Friday night and this would be notified to members by a notice on our website and by broadcast email. There would never be a situation where competition has commenced on a Saturday morning when there is any danger of bushfires. We would never be in the position of having to send members home from the oval. More...
