How to Register for Little Athletics – Season 2015/16
*** Registration Date: Saturday 10 October 2015 from 10am to 12pm at Cook Oval, Biffin Street Cook ***
There will be an additional Registration Day for the 2015-16 season on 10 October 2015 for children aged 5 to 17 years. A child who turns 5 during the season (1st October 2015 to 31 March 2016) may also register. These athletes will then remain in the Under 6 age group for two seasons. Check the Age Calculator to determine the applicable age group.
Fees for the 2015-2016 season are as follows (cost per athlete): first child $125, 2nd child $115, 3rd child $105, 4th child $95, 5th child $75. Proof of age is required for all new athletes (those not previously registered with an ACTLAA affiliated centre).
We continue to take registrations after the season has commenced. Registrations received after 10 October 2015 will be charged an administration fee of $10 per family. A refund of registration fees will only be made if you advise our Registrar prior to the commencement of the season and will incur an administration fee of $10 per family.
Step 1 – Registration
Online registration is available using the ACTLAA Online System, or access via Little Athletics ACT. We would prefer that parents/carers do not pay online but pay either through direct debit or in person when collecting their registration kits (see Step 2). This is to avoid the online fee charged to the Club. Please also record your receipt number. Registrations can also be made at one of our registration days (see Step 3).
Step 2 – Payment
If paying by direct debit, please use our Centre’s bank account, as follows:
▪ – Account Name: Belconnen Wests Little Athletics Centre
▪ – BSB number: 062911
▪ – Account Number: 10077933
▪ – Details: For individual athletes, use Athlete’s first name and surname e.g. JamesSmith. For families, use Eldest athlete’s first name, surname and “family” e.g. SarahJonesFamily.
If paying by cash or cheque, you do not need to do anything else until you drop in at one of the BLAC Registration Days to pick up your registration kit.
Step 3 – Registration Kit
Come along and pick up your registration kit on Saturday 10 October 2015 from 10am to 12pm at Cook Oval.
Each child will receive a registration kit, containing:
▪ – A registration number and age patch that needs to be sewn onto the uniform
▪ – A ticket book to record individual results of events

Please consider volunteering for one of our Committee positions to ensure that our club keeps producing great little athletes for years to come.
