Our last club night for the 2019/2020 season is fast approaching.

WCLA’s athletes have been making some great achievements over the past season.

Just last week we had a few new centre records:

Ryan Monkman, U11B Javelin record. Throwing 18.85m.

Kailee Moore, U17G Triple jump record, jumping 11.29. Old record held since 2009.

Noah Towill, U13B 800m Centre Record that has been held since 1999.

Jamaya Wayne, U14G Discus record throwing 37.36m, held since 1995.

Congratulations on these amazing efforts!

Wollongong City Little Athletics Centre (WCLA)

WCLA is locally based and provides competition for athletes aged from Under 6 to Under 17. The age division that you compete in is determined by your age as at the 31st of December.

This updated age rule is determined by the Little Athletics Association of NSW.

Friday Night Competition

WCLA stages its athletic meet on a Friday Night during the athletics season (Spring/Summer).

The competition is held at the Kerryn McCann Athletic Centre and commences at 5.15pm. Competition nights finish between 7.30pm – 8.00pm depending on the number of athletes competing.

There are 4 events for the Under 6 to Under 12 age groups and 5 events for the Under 13 to Under 17 age group. The events usually consist of two track and two field events for each age group.

Each competition night is a point score night. Points are accumulated throughout the season to determine the age champions at the end of the season. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place age champions are based on point score. There may also be 2 additional awards per age group.
