MACQUARIE HUNTER ATHLETICS CLUB
REGISTRATION FOR 2021-2022 ATHLETICS SEASON
Welcome back to the 2021/22 Little Athletics season at Macquarie Hunter Athletics Club.
Registrations are now open and you can sign up now at:
Before you begin though here is some important information.
REGISTERING ON THE NEW GAMEDAY PLATFORM
GameDay is a new registration system for the 2021/22 season. Therefore even if your child is a returning athlete you will need to log in as a New Participant when you log in for the first time.
ACTIVE KIDS VOUCHERS
The $100 State Government Active Kids vouchers can be used towards your membership. It is recommended that you apply for your voucher prior to commencing the registrations process so you have the number ready. You can apply for this voucher by CLICKING HERE. The voucher number you receive for each child should be added on the final page before payment. It is recommended that you register your child with the same name that appears on your Medicare Card as this will match the record in the Active Kids Voucher system.
Trial memberships are only available to those who are new to Little Athletics. It is recommended that you don’t use an Active Kids voucher for this as if you do want to continue, the voucher cannot be held as a credit for your full registration.
REGISTERING MULTIPLE CHILDREN
If you are registering multiple children there will be an option on the first page to selected first, second, third and fourth child. Please only select one type at a time and move through the process for each child individually. Once the process for each child is complete you will be able to add additional children before payment.
If unsure of your child’s age group click here. You won’t however need this information when registering as it will automatically calculate the correct age group when you add their date of birth.
PROOF OF AGE
Proof of age is required for all new members. This may be a birth certificate, passport or health book. You can upload this document during the registration process or bring it along to your Centre on your first day to be sighted.
PARENT DECLARATION AND WORKING WITH CHILDREN DECLARATION
You will also be required to confirm you have read and understand the parent/guardian declaration and provide your Centre with a completed Little Athletics NSW Working With Children declaration.
DUAL MEMBERS WITH ATHLETICS NSW (ANSW)
For Athletes aged U12-U17, you will have the option to select if you would like your child to be a Dual Member with ANSW. The ANSW Dual Membership is free and entitles you to access to all ANSW competitions including State Championships, the opportunity to qualify for a NSW team to compete at Nationals, and importantly an opportunity to transition into senior athletics. Athletics NSW memberships for the 2021/2022 will be open mid to late September 2021 and you will be sent more information to complete the registration process at this time.
Little Athletics NSW has moved to a new registration system in 2021. Due to this you will need to enter all your details even if your child is a returning participant. This registration however will be matched with your historical data.
We look forward to enjoying the Little Athletics season with you again.
Some important changes to note:
• The Hunter Sports Centre is resurfacing their track in early 2022 and as a result, our season will run from Friday, September 3rd until Friday, December 17th 2021.
• From January 2022 – March 2022 Cardiff District Athletics Club has offered to accept our athletes on their Friday night carnivals where our athletes will be able to go and continue their athletics at no additional charges.
• Athletes will still represent our club at all athletic events including local
carnivals zone, regional and state championships with our full support.
• REDUCED registration fees making it a cost-effective way to enjoy athletics.
Proof of age documentation (e.g. birth certificate, passport etc.) is required for new members.
PLEASE NOTE FEES ARE NOT REFUNDABLE: It is therefore recommended that newcomers take up the offer of a two-week trial period on the first 2 nights of competition (T.B.A).
Uniforms will also be available for sale (dependent on availability) soon.
NEW ATHLETES – Please ensure you bring proof of age with you, eg. passport/birth certificate.
FEES (Updated soon) – Tiny Tot Registration Fees for the 2021-2022 Season are $120 (must be at least 3 at time of registration).
Athletes in the family
We are registered to receive the active kids voucher ($100 for each child). This is entered during the online rego process. First, get your voucher codes from Service NSW. See their website for more details: https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/. The Voucher will not be able to be applied after registration so make sure this is entered during the online process.
Payment for registration can be made either by credit or debit during online registration.
Little Athletics is a volunteer organisation and we require parents/carers to assist with the running of Friday night competitions as much as is possible. In addition, to help during events for your own dependent’s events, we will have a parent help roster for set up, pack up & possible BBQ throughout the season. Members of the committee will still be present to help and provide guidance on what is required (more information will be provided at the registration day).
Macquarie Hunter requires every child to be signed in with their Age Manager at the start of competition and signed out when taken home. * IMPORTANT: Please be aware that no child should be left on Friday nights to compete on their own. If a child is found to be left without a parent/carer present at the venue, they will be placed with a committee member until either a parent/guardian can be located, or appropriate authorities called to the venue.
Our first competition night for the 2021-2022 Season will be Friday, 3rd of September. Friday Competition Nights begin at 5.30 pm with a group warm-up lead by our senior athletes, and competition begins at 6pm.
