What age group should my child be registered in?
Athletes are allocated to an Age Group according to their month and year of birth. Age groups for Little Athletics are calculated as at the 30th September each year.
Please use the below table to calculate what Age Group your athlete should be registered in (NB: The Online Registration system will automatically calculate the correct age group for your athletes).
NOTE: Athletes that are born after 30/09/2012 are ineligible to compete in formal Little Athletics competition in the 2017/2018 season.
However, USCLAC are proud to be able to offer a Tiny Tots program for athletes aged 3 and 4 years. Tiny Tots compete in a range of activities to introduce them to the sport of Little Athletics including track running, long jump and lots of other fun activities.
USCLAC has a family based Registration Fee system. The Registration Fees for the 2017/2018 season are:

USCLAC’s family based Registration Fee system includes as “family cap”. This means that the maximum Registration Fees payable will be $270.00 per family.
Please refer to the Centre Handbook for full details of our Registration Fee and refund policy.
The Parent Levy is a per family fee collected as part of our Registration process in recognition of the fact that USCLAC need parent volunteers, but not all parents are able to help us out every week.
The great news is that if you are able to help us out 12 times throughout the season, then we will refund your Parent Levy at the end of the season! Just remember to fill out your parent helper card each Friday night that you help out.
Please refer to the Centre Handbook for full terms & conditions relating to the Parent Levy.

Athletes who are interested in giving Little A’s a go, but aren’t quite sure can come along and try it out before registering. USCLAC offer two trials at a cost of $10 per athlete, per trial. However, if your athletes love it and decide they would like to register, we will deduct the trial fees from your registration fees.
