What its all about!

 

The South Perth Little Athletics Club train on Wednesday afternoons from 5pm sharp to 6.30pm. Parents with children 10 years old and under are asked to stay at the ground with their children.

We run off a training schedule where we warm up and then rotate 4 events in their particular age group.  These events change each week coinciding with what is coming up that following Saturday.

Please note there is no "one on one" training in club training time.  Should you wish to train your child individually before or after club training please speak to the Coach Co-ordinator, Hayley Shelby.

Training takes place at Ernest Johnson Oval, South Perth.

Training

 

You  can register online from 9am on Saturday 1 September 2018 or come on down and register in person on the same day from 3pm to 5pm at the Ernest Johnson Oval beside our Container next to the cricket nets.

At registration there is also an additional $50 bond deposit to ensure all rostered duties have been met. This bond will be given back at the Wind Up at the end of the season if these duties have been met.

Rosters and Parent Involvement

Parents will be rostered on duty every 2 to 3 weeks. Parents will receive a roster for the first 3 weeks. Following that another roster will come out for the rest of the season. In addition to the registration fees a bond of $50 will be required to ensure all rostered duties are met. If the parents duties are met the $50 bond will be given back at the end of season Wind Up.

If you will be away on a week that you are rostered for it is your responsibility to email and/or call other parents to swap.

 

Parents will also be asked to help coach or assist a coach at training. Without parent help the club cannot function and we ask any parent with or without coaching skills and who is able to help to join us.

Summer Competition

The summer competition starts in October and finishes in February.

Our program runs from Week 1 to Week 5. Our summer season goes for 3 programs. In addition to those 15 weeks we have our Championships that will  run on the Saturday and Sunday morning of one weekend.

You will receive a “White Book” which will have all the programs in it for each of the 5 weeks.

This White Book also provides a host of other information from a District point of view including things like Codes of Behaviour, Spectator Hill Seating Order, Points System etc.

Each week depending on their age the children will have between 4 and 6 events.

 

Our Saturday competition takes place at Ern Clark Oval on Wharf Street in Cannington. We start at 7.30am and will finish any time from 12 noon to 1pm approximately.  

We also have some Twilight meets throughout the summer competition. These Twilights normally start at 5.15 and may fall on a Friday or Saturday evening.

As we don't have an exact date in regards to the Christmas break in the season, we normally continue running our  program through the first 2 weeks of December and then we will have a break. The break will be 3 weeks if you would like to participate in the SDLAC Multis (which is where a random program is run and there are points for each event, medals of first, second and third will be given to the athlete with the highest points of all the events they were in). If you do not participate in the SDLAC Multis which is optional then there is a break of 4 weeks.

South Perth Pelicans compete against Canning Vale, Queens Park, Riverton, Willetton and Ranford and together we fall under the Southern Stars District.

The results of the events can be obtained from a website called Results HQ.  On this webiste you will be able to obtain your child's times and distances as well as placing.
