As everyone is aware the last few months have certainly been challenging and affected our family, school and work life as well as community sport due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The current NSW Government health restrictions which apply to outdoor activities and public gatherings with recent updates regarding community sport, limits the maximum number of participants to 500 including athletes, officials and spectators (as at 31 July 2020). 

LANSW has also released Back on Track Guidelines for compliance by NSW Athletics Centres, if you would like further information please see LANSW link –https://lansw.com.au/covid-19/

This means that we will need to restructure our weekly competition and make changes to how many age groups and volunteers are at the track at any one time.

Being mindful of the health and well being of our athletes, officials, volunteers and extended families, the Committee has decided to apply the following measures to comply with the current Public Health rules and Little Athletics NSW guidelines:

  • Saturday Morning Competition will be scheduled over two time periods with Seniors (U11-U17) from 8am until 10am and Juniors (U6-U10) from 10.30am until 1pm (approx.). 
  • The Program will be run over 3 weeks (A, B and C) and will allow 3 to 4 events per week per age group.
  • There will be NO Tiny Tots or Trial weeks as well as NO training or skills nights.
  • Only one parent per athlete is allowed at the track at any one time.
  • Parent Duty will be based on the youngest child per session – more information to follow.

Our season will have a delayed start which is due to the overlap of winter sport. The first day of competition will be on Saturday 10th October, this could still change depending on the NSW Government health restrictions.

Competition This Week – Saturday 15th February

Well, the weather has done it to us again!

With the heavy rain experienced over the weekend, and the forecast rain for the rest of the week, the decision has been made to postpone the Centre Championships until February 29th. At this stage, the track is not usable, and will require mowing and line marking once it is dry enough to drive on.

We realise that the 29th clashes with the State Combined Event that is being held in Tamworth that weekend and Nippers State Carnival, we do apologise if that affects any of our athletes.

If we are able to get the track ready for this weekend (weather and track condition permitting), there is a possibility we may be able to run our Week A programme. Keep an eye out for TeamApp notifications.

Please contact us if you have any questions at info@sutherlandlac.org.au
