 Welcome to Kingborough Little Athletics 2014-15 Season

Our first meet for the summer season is scheduled for 4 October 2014.

Kingborough Council are working around the clock to make sure Gormley Park will be ready in time, but please check back here or keep an eye on our Facebook page to make sure we have the all clear to use the ground on that day.

In the unfortunate event that the meet is cancelled it will be rescheduled for later in the year.

New Athletes Come and Try

Little Athletics allows you to come and try for two meets before having to become a registered athlete. So come and join us at one of our meets and give it a go. Remember to wear comfortable clothes, shoes for running and a hat, and bring a drink bottle, a parent and a big smile. A canteen and BBQ are available.

Registration

For 2014-15 the registration process is entirely online through the Little Athletics Tasmania registration portal. Previous families registered with a current email address will be emailed directly by LATas with login details to streamline the registration process.

Due to changes with the online payment process this season NO FAMILY DISCOUNTS are available if you pay online and payments will incur an additional 6% merchant processing fee.

Family discounts are only available if you pay in person at the Gormley Park clubrooms. Payment methods are CASH, CHEQUE and EFTPOS. The Centre will absorb the merchant fees if you pay by EFTPOS.

To register online please follow this link to the Registration Portal.

Please note that registration will be incomplete until payment has been received in full.

2014-15 Fees

Fees for the 2014-15 season are $100 per athlete, $20 for a Tiny Tot and $45 for a dual registration. However, the following family discounts apply if you pay at the Gormley Park clubrooms:

1 child $100
2 children $185
3 children $270
4 children $355
Tiny Tots $20
Dual Registration $45

Fees are set each year by LATas and a portion of the fee is submitted directly to LATas to cover registration and insurance. In addition to the LATas registration fee, KLAC charge $20 per child (to cover individual expenses such as trophies, ribbons and tickets) and $15 per family (to cover expenses such as maintenance of equipment, electricity, and other administration costs like pens, clipboards, paper, printer toner etc.). We do not charge a competition fee each week, nor do we expect visiting athletes to pay to compete.

Welcome to our Centre

Kingborough Little Athletics Centre Inc. is affiliated with the Little Athletics Tasmania and provides a range of athletics events for children between the ages of 5 and 14 in the Kingborough area.

Our season starts on the first Saturday in October and extends through to mid March. We meet at Gormley Park, Gormley Drive, Kingston (off Summerleas Road, before Kingborough Sports Centre) on Saturday mornings at 8.30am with the occasional Wednesday evening twilight meeting at 5.30pm.

Little Athletics is a family activity where parents are encouraged to assist with the running of events. It is a great way for the family to be actively involved in sport. The emphasis is not on winning, but athletes improving their performance in a friendly atmosphere of "Family Fun and Fitness".
