Ku-ring-gai Little Athletics is located at Bannockburn Oval, Bannockburn Road, Pymble

The Ku-ring-gai Little Athletics Centre was established in September 1977 and is one of approximately 200 such Centres in NSW. There are 39,000 “Little Athletes” throughout NSW, and around 90,000 nationally. Kur-ring-gai Little Athletics Centre Inc. is incorporated under NSW law, and is affiliated with the Little Athletics Association of NSW Inc. Our Centre is operated on a non-profit basis, and has no paid employees. Aside from qualified coaches whom we engage for several hours each week during the season, the Centre is operated entirely by parents and family members on a voluntary basis.

Our Centre draws on families throughout Ku-ring-gai including Gordon, Pymble, West Pymble, St Ives, Turramurra and Wahroonga – these six suburbs form the Centre’s “Club” structure. Ku-ring-gai Council maintains our track and field facilities in the best possible condition.

Ku-ring-gai Little Athletics Registration:

For the 2017/2018 season you must firstly register and pay through the Little Athletics NSW web site – www.lansw.com.au. Forms MUST be completed by a parent or guardian, rather than the athlete. Complete all details as fully as possible. The procedure includes internet payment of the registration fee. This year the Ku-ring-gai and State fees will total $150 for each little athlete regardless of the number of little athletes registering from a single family.

Once you have completed your registration and payment through Little Athletics NSW please print off a copy of the receipt, and then to complete the registration process and receive your registration numbers and other patches please present all the documentation, including your receipt and PROOF OF AGE for all new members on any Saturday morning at Bannockburn Oval from 16 September.
