    • Trialists will not be eligible for representative competition unless they meet ALL centre criteria

To be part of the NSW Little Athletics Association athletes must register with the Manly Warringah Little Athletics Centre via one of the clubs that competes at the Centre. These clubs are:

Cromer | Manly | Peninsula | Seaforth | Wakehurst

Registration is open to children in the Under 7 to Under 17 age groups (U6 from Jan 2019 – Click here for more details). To find out which age group your child is eligible for in the upcoming season, view the Age Matrix table.


Registration fees 2018/19 (not applicable to U6) for each club for the season are:

  • First Child: $185
  • Second and subsequent child: $175
  • *Parent Duty Bond: $75

*In addition to the registration fee, The Centre (through each club) levies a parent duty bond of $75 per family in order to encourage parents to fulfil their parent duties – just 3 per family per season. This bond is payable at registration and families are eligible for a full refund after completing all duties for the season. Refunds are paid after the end of the season.

Please note that Registration Fees are non-refundable.  For extreme circumstances, if a refund is approved, a $20 administration fee will apply and only the Manly Centre and/or club fee will be refunded.  To get your LANSW fee refunded you will need to approach LANSW directly.  Please speak with your centre first as all centres offer a trial period for new members.  No refunds will be approved if you have already competed.
