LAs Standard Rules of Competition

Little Athletics Woolgoolga has governing bodies at both state and national level. These governing bodies set, among other things, the rules for the types of events and maximum distances allowed per age group. We understand there is some amazing talent out there and that maybe your younger child really wants to try triple jump or high jump or run the 1500m. However for the safety of all athletes, and to ensure we comply with our insurance requirements, it is important that we program our events according to these rules of competition.

These rules will often refer to the Para, national or world athletics rules and there are links on the LA NSW site for those too. Here are the direct links:
