WEATHER

NLAC has introduced a hot weather policy. For Sunday morning meets, if the previous night’s news service forecasts 36 degrees or higher for the Noarlunga area, there will be no meet. For twilight meets and training nights, if the temperature is 35 degrees or higher at 4.00pm, it will be cancelled.

 

Every attempt will be made to modify events whenever weather conditions are extreme. Unfortunately, radio stations don't broadcast public announcements anymore so it will be a matter of using your own discretion as to the weather conditions. Meets are usually only cancelled if there is a constant rain. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience due to natures gifts.

 

PLEASE NOTE: S.A. LITTLE ATHLETICS ASSOCIATION EVENTS ARE NOT CANCELLED DUE TO THE WEATHER! HOT WEATHER PROGRAMS WILL BE PROVIDED IN ADVANCE.

Cars are not permitted on the oval except for equipment & stock deliveries. Parking outside the fence is permitted but please DO NOT block the gate as access is essential for emergency vehicles, etc.

PARENTAL ASSISTANCE

PARENTAL ASSISTANCE IS REQUIRED EACH WEEK FOR THE SMOOTH RUNNING OF THE PROGRAM.

CHAPERONES

 

Each week a parent is required to act as chaperone for each age group. Parents may wish to roster this duty amongst themselves for the season. The responsibility of the chaperone is to:-

  • act as supervisor for the age group
  • record results of events on recording sheets
  • provide each athlete with a ticket with recorded results for each event
  • encourage athletes to participate and have fun!

OFFICIALS

Little Athletics SA conduct Introduction to Coaching Courses (ITCC) throughout the year, the majority being staged just prior to, or during the Little Athletics summer season. The ITCC is great for those who want to know more about skills of Athletics, so that they may help to coach children, assist at Little Athletics Centres and to prepare students for school athletics carnivals. If you would like to attend a course, speak to a Committee member for details.

 

 

The Australian Athletics Officials’ Education Scheme (AAOES) has been introduced. It provides one seamless and transparent pathway for all athletics Officials, regardless of their affiliation with either Athletics Australia or Little Athletics Australia.

 

 

 

You can help your Centre/Club and Little Athletics SA, by qualifying as an Official.

Be 'official' - become an OFFICIAL!

 

This course is the first step in officiating, within Little Athletics. The course provides the basic knowledge to allow a parent to officiate at Centre Level and assist at Association Events.

 

The Officials Course covers all Little Athletics Track & Field events, combining rules with the practical application of them, along with the important aspects of safety, venue set up, recording results and handling equipment.

SET UP & PACK UP AT HOME MEETS

The committee welcomes parental assistance for the setting up & packing away of equipment each week.

  • SET UP: requires parents to arrive by 8:45am to help Committee members set up the equipment at each event.
  • PACK UP: requires parents to help Committee members pack all the equipment back into the shed at the completion of events. The last age group programmed at a field event each week are required to pack up all equipment for that event for collection by the equipment trailer before returning to the shed.

CANTEEN & BBQ

Each week canteen & BBQ will be available. Both are run on a roster basis. The roster for parental assistance will be posted on the notice board for families to nominate a suitable week. If each family nominates once a season that will be all that is required.
