Parental involvement is vital to keep our Centre functioning. Without your help this recreation would cease to exist for our children. Little Athletics is a family activity and parents doing the ‘drop and go’ will have their child removed to the clubrooms until they return. This is purely for the safety of your child in the case of an emergency but also recognises that we are all volunteers and all need to contribute.
If the forecast temperature on the morning of a meeting is 36°C or above, then a meeting of only 3 events may be held. Distance events will be reviewed throughout the morning. Whilst we take a cautious approach the end decision to compete rests with the athletes and their parents. However athletes must compete in 3 events at each meeting to count as one official attendance. Meetings will not be cancelled.
Tuesday training sessions will be modified if the temperature is 35°C or above at 4:30 p.m. A revised session for all age groups may be held. For short notice notifications the clubs facebook site may be used to inform parents of cancellations. Facebook page - Eastern Districts Little Athletics - EDLA
During wet weather we run a modified program that is dependent on the state of the surface.
In the case of thunder or lightning, all athletes and family members must seek shelter as soon as possible, in the club rooms. They shall remain under the shelter until it is deemed by the club President or designated committee member to be safe to return to the open.
Please click on the below links to view the listed current State Association policies. Please come and talk to a committee member in a purple shirt if you would like to discuss anything further.
Out of respect to other families within EDLA, we ask that photographs taken at any event or meet that contain images of other athletes not be published, distributed to others, or placed on any form of social media, without the consent of the relevant family. It is recommended that you seek permission prior to taking any photographs.
Please see the image below to ensure you attach the REGISTRATION, AGE, & JETSTAR PATCHS to the correct spots on your uniforms (and yes the JETSTAR PATCHES have to go over the top of the EDLA logo if your unform has one).
All uniforms MUST be correct for athletes competing in any Championship or SALAA Events.
