Little Athletics NSW has announced the qualifiers for the 2015 State Championships and a record number of NSLAC will compete at SOPAC in March. Congratulations to the 93 NSLAC athletes who have qualified to compete - this is 6 more than our previous peak in 2012. Among the qualifiers are 37 athletes who will appear at State for the first time. Well done all!
In accordance with the Office of Fair Trading guidelines and the Little Athletics NSW template, the NSLAC Management Committee is proposing that NSLAC adopt a new Constitution, which can be viewed here.
Accordingly notice is hereby given of a Special General Meeting of the Centre to be held at Rotary Athletics Field, West Chatswood at 8 a.m. on Saturday 14 March 2015. The sole item on the Agenda of this Special General Meeting will be the adoption of the new Constitution for the Centre.
All members are encouraged to attend this Meeting and are requested to advise the secretary (email@example.com) whether or not they intend to do so. Any questions regarding the proposed Constitution may be directed either to the President, Richard Butler (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Secretary, Sally Richardson (email@example.com)
Congratulations to all of our NSLAC athletes who competed at the Region 5 Championships carnival on the 14th and 15th of February. There were great conditions for the carnival and some outstanding performances. The full results for the Region 5 Carnival will be posted here once available.
Athletes who finished in the top two places at the Region carnival are automatic qualifiers to the State Championships (20th to the 22nd of March 2015). The next best 8 performances across the State will also qualify - so if you made a final at Region you need to check to see if you made it. The full list of State qualifiers will be posted here in the week after the last of the Region carnivals on 21-22 February.
Zone shirts and Region Hoodies
In order to clear out excess stock of region hoodies and zone t-shirts from past seasons they will be on sale at Rotary from Saturday the 7th onwards. There are red and black hoodies and t-shirts in various sizes but stock is limited to that which is on-hand so get in quick! (note: these clothing items recognise attendance at rep carnivals but do not have the season embroidered on them).
Congratulations to our athletes and parents for a great fundraising effort at our multi-day on the 31st of January. We raised $1570 for the Kids Helpline. Our multi-day results will be announced by your age manager's at our carnival on the 7th of February.

This season NSLAC is introducing representative patches for our athletes who qualify through to Zone, Region and/or State Championships. The patches will be handed out at our presentation day. They'll look great sewn on the rep polo shirts that were handed out at the Zone Championships or one of the other NSLAC tops that are awarded to our athletes for their various achievements.
The date for our presentation day has now been confirmed as Sunday 3rd of May 2015 at St Ignatious College, Riverview. Please put this date in your calendar.
