2021/2022 Season Update

We hope that you are all keeping safe and well during this difficult time and looking forward to the new athletics season.

Due to the current COVID situation in NSW, registrations have been delayed. The situation remains fluid and we will keep you up to date as we progress towards opening registrations.

Season Structure

At this point, the Committee anticipates that the coming season will look very much like last season. The only difference being the start of the second session, which will start at 6.30pm rather than 6.45pm. The season structure may change depending on athlete numbers, COVID requirements and the duration of the current lockdown.

Session times:

1st Session Starts – 5:15pm, U6-10’s 

2nd Session Starts – 6:30pm, U11’s + 

Season Timing – TBC (normally early October to mid-March)

We thank you for your patience. As soon as we have more information about opening registrations, we will be in touch again.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email Neil Redford at registrar@kotarasouthathletics.org.au.

2020-2021 Volunteer Roster

This is vital for our growing club to ensure the nights are run as efficiently and smoothly as possible. All roles are very easy – they range from general event assistance, helping in the canteen, to cooking the bbq, and setting up/packing up the field. You will be guided on the night. If you require more information please don’t hesitate to enquire.
