Registering with ESLAC for the 2019/20 Season

2019/2020 Season Registrations are Open. Registrations for the 2019/20 Little Athletics Season have opened. The first night of Competition for the season is on Friday the 13th of September but you should complete your registration before the opening night.

Registration is a 4 step process:

Step 1 – Visit the Services NSW web site to apply for your $100 Active Kids Voucher for each child you are registering for Little Athletics. Eastern Suburbs Little Athletics Centre is a registered activity provider and you will be able to claim a $100 discount off your registration fee for each child registered. To claim your $100 discount you will need to enter your child’s voucher number during the online registration process through the Little Athletics NSW website.

Step 2 – All registrations are done online through Little Athletics NSW. Click here to register online now. Please note that for security reasons, ESLAC prefers not to accept membership payments, so all registration payments should be made online at the time of registration by clicking the “Submit Application & Pay Online” button when it is offered.
Step 3 – Registration can be completed by coming to one of our pre-season registration nights (scheduled for Friday the 6th of September at ES Marks Athletics Field and Thursday the 12th of September in the ES Marks Car Park outside the ESLAC Storage Shed) or arriving early on your first competition night (from 5:15pm) and visiting Ilana, our registrar, at the registration desk on the way into ES Marks just before you see the track. Athletes who have completed the online part of registration, including online payment, will be asked for their completed Working with Children Declaration LANSW 2019 and ESLAC Parental Obligations Aug 1, 2016 forms (these were downloaded as part of the online registration process and should be completed prior to attending the registration). Once the forms are received athletes are given a registration pack that includes their registration number and age group  and sponsor patches.
Step 4 – This step only applies to athletes who are new to the club for the 2019/2020 season. You MUST bring a proof of age document that can be sighted by the club registrar so that the registered athlete’s age group can be confirmed. Birth certificate or passport are the preferred proof of age documents.

Notes:

  • Little Athletes registering for the first time for the 2019/20 season will be asked to select a centre and then a club. In both cases choose “Eastern Suburbs Little Athletics Club-Friday
  • Remember, you are registering your little athletes, not yourself, so please ensure you enter the correct details i.e. make sure you use the Little Athlete’s name and not yours. When supplying an email address, be mindful that this is the email address the ESLAC committee will use to communicate with you about ESLAC events and information during the season.

A Trial Night is Possible. If you want to see if Little Athletics suits your child you can always come along for a trial night. Simply check in with Ilana, our registrar, at the ESLAC registration desk when you arrive (or storage area later in the season) and add your details to our Trialers Spreadsheet and then join in with your age group. If you would like to compete the following week you will need to complete your registration (see steps 1 to 4 above) pay the online registration fee and purchase an ESLAC uniform.
* Only one trial day per athlete per centre is possible, athletes should complete payment after their trial if they would like to participate further at ESLAC Little A’s.
* For any further Registration queries, please email our registrar  Ilana Guthrie

Parent obligations
* Little Athletics is a volunteer organisation and we require parents/carers to assist with the running of Friday night competitions as much as is possible.
* There are plenty of opportunities to assist and the children enjoy seeing their families get involved as well. Whether it be giving a hand on the BBQ, helping with data entry, assisting with marshaling on the straight or circular tracks or raking jump pits, many hands make the night enjoyable for all.
* Parents can be of most help by studying the rules of events by visiting the E-Learning courses of the Australian Institute of Sport here.
* Club coaches are in attendance to coach athletes and it is important that we make the most of this valuable resource. We can help coaches maximise their time with athletes by ensuring volunteer tasks such as raking pits and recording results are performed by parens/carers as organised by parent volunteer Age Managers.
* ESLAC requires every child to be signed in with their Age Manager at start of competition and signed out when taken home.
* IMPORTANT: please be aware that no child should be left on Friday nights to compete on their own. If a child is found to be left without a parent / carer present at the venue, they will be placed with a committee member until either a parent can be located, or appropriate authorities called to the venue.
