DECD accepts no responsibility or liability for services or activities organised or provided by Noarlunga Little Athletics Centre Incorporated.
(Entry is opposite Colonnades Shopping Centre)
Each season starts late September and will run until the end of March the following year. See program page for more information. Generally we meet on Sunday mornings at 9:00am for a 9:15 start. Families are encouraged to arrive earlier to assist in the set up.
COME AND TRY?
New athletes can visit the centre and participate in 2 Come and Try sessions. It's the best way to see if the athlete will want to continue and also for families to see if they are happy with the centre before paying the registration and uniform costs. You still need to click on the REGISTER HERE button on this page to create a profile and register for the Come and Try sessions.
WHAT EVENTS ARE THERE?
Little Athletics offers a wide range of events: Sprints, Middle Distance, Walks, Relays, Hurdles, High Jump, Long Jump, Triple Jump, Discus, Shot Put, Javelin and Cross Country.
NLAC has introduced a hot weather policy. For Sunday morning meets, if the previous nights 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.

Join The Committee
As the committee members are also parents of athletes, the members can change quite often due to their children becoming too old to be a "Little Athlete".
Therefore, any expressions of interest in becoming a committee member are very welcome. If you would like a description of any particular role, please contact us. All positions are available for nomination at our AGM at the end of the season.
Please contact a current member for more information.
