Athletics offers a great opportunity for all children to learn the basic motor skills, to keep fit and to socialise with others. For those who wish to progress further in the sport, the pathways are also there.
No other sport offers such a wide a range of events to all ages and to all levels of competitors. This is also one downside on that it makes athletics the most labour intensive of ALL sports.
All weekly training and track and field events conducted at our weekly club competitions are subject to parental involvement. PARENTS/GUARDIANS NEED TO ASSIST WITH THE RUNNING OF EACH EVENT. If there are not enough parents present to officiate each event in a safe and timely manner, then the event will be cancelled.
MINIMUM OF 3 PEOPLE EACH WITH A MINIMUM AGE OF 16 TO OFFICIATE AN EVENT
All athletes MUST wear the TNSAC club uniform and attach their ANQ registration number to both the front and back when competing at all club competitions and track and field carnivals. Uniforms can be purchased from the registration desk at each club competition. No uniform, no club points.
Members: $3 per session
Non-members: $5 per session
