Operation of the Centre can't take place without the support and involvement of parents. Many of the current committee won't be involved with the Centre next season so we hope you will consider standing for a Committee position to have a say in the running of your Centre.
Vacant Committee positions
Only a few of the Committee positions were filled at the Annual General Meeting; there are still many key positions that remain vacant and require filling if the Centre is to run next season. Put your hand up and have a say in the running of your Centre! You can download the Job Descriptions for these Committee positions. You can also download the Centre Constitution and the 2015/16 Annual Report. The Committee positions still unfilled are listed on the Committee page.
Annual General Meeting for the 2015/2016 season
The Annual General Meeting [AGM] for Hornsby District Little athletics Centre Inc. was held during our presentation afternoon on 1 May at Pennant Hills Bowling Club. The 2015/2016 Annual Report, which included the Treasurer's and Auditor's reports, were presented to the meeting. A special resolution to ratify the LANSW Standard Constitution was passed unanimously. All current committee positions were then declared VACANT and an election of office bearers for the 2016/2017 Season took place. Remember the success and viability of HDLAC is dependent wholly on the voluntary assistance of the Athlete's parents to fill committee positions.
Presentation Afternoon on Sunday, 1 May
Our annual Presentation Afternoon was held at Pennant Hills Bowling Club on Sunday, 1 May 2016 following the AGM. Awards were presented to athletes for outstanding performance, participation and achievement, and to parents, officials and volunteers for service to the Centre during the past season. You can download a summary of the awards that were presented.

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...
