Registration Process for Season 2019/20

Meets are held on Saturdays from 8:45 to 11am at Cook Oval in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. Children in the 7-17 year age groups participate in 5 events each week, with the 6 year age group participating in games-based athletic activities.
Register here for the 2019-20 season. Children must turn 6 or older during 2020 to compete. The age you turn in 2020 is the age group that you compete in.

Registrations can also be made at our registration day at Cook Oval on Sunday 22 September. Proof of age is required for all new athletes (those not previously registered with an ACTLAA affiliated centre) and can be uploaded via the online registration system.
Athletes are required to compete in the club uniform. This is a polo shirt and can be purchased via the on-line registration system (with a 7.5% surcharge) or by cash payment at the registration day or immediately before the first meet. Some second hand uniforms are also available for a gold coin donation.

ResultsHQ – How to view your Results
Last season the centre moved to the Timing Solutions online results system for storing all results information from regular season meets. Families can log in to review their childrens results across the season, print tickets for each performance (if desired) and generally see how they are improving over time. Results take a few days to enter into the system, with the exception of the races run on the straight track where the timing gate results are uploaded within a few hours of the meet. To access results families can log into ResultsHQ by following the steps set out at the following link: ResultsHQ Your username (for all children in your family participating) is the email address that you used to register this season.
