For the 2023/24 season, registration fees will be $160 for 4 year old Tots (Tiger Cubs) and $190 for U6 to U17s - that’s only $10 a week for Club competition and access to community and specialist training. Also, don’t forget to claim your $50 NSW Active Kids Voucher via Service NSW.
View the LANSW Age Grid for the 2023/24 season. It shows which age group your child will be in based on their year of birth.
Many of our younger age groups (including 4 year old Tots/Tiger Cubs program, U6 to U10) fill up quickly and close before the start of the season.
A registration cap of 50 athletes per age group will apply.
Our Tots/Tiger Cubs program is for 4 year olds only.

NEW MEMBERSHIP OFFERINGS - Every athlete registering with Balmain Athletics Club for the 2023/24 season will automatically be a member of Little Athletics NSW and Athletics NSW. This means more support for our Club and a variety of opportunities for athletes to participate across a range of events including community races, fun runs, relays, State Combined Carnival, Treloar Shield (a series of team competition events), Zone-Region-State progression Championships, and other specialist events. We will keep you informed of these opportunities during the season.
To keep up to date with the Club, follow us on Facebook and Instagram. Also, check out our FAQ page for more information.
Maximum age group capacity and waiting lists
The Balmain Athletics Committee is concerned about the health and safety of all athletes and the level of enjoyment for each child and parent/caregiver in large groups of athletes. As a result, age groups are closed when the number of registered athletes reaches 50.
After an age group is closed, we open a waiting list. These lists are maintained until mid-December or closed when the number of athletes on the waiting list reaches 20. Athletes may be invited to register at a reduced registration fee in January (mid season). This is at the discretion of the Balmain Athletics Committee. Please be aware that all members of the Committee are volunteers, as are all our age managers. We do not maintain waiting lists prior to the opening of the summer registration period.
