Sensational Centres Recognised at Annual Conference

The 2019 LANSW Annual Conference was held at Penrith Panthers on the weekend, with multiple guest speakers sharing their stories and thought-provoking ideas in preparation for the 2019/20 season.


Combining with the LANSW Annual General Meeting and Awards Dinner, the Conference proved to be an inspiring and productive event for all involved, including centres, board members, zone coordinators and staff.




Little Athletics NSW would like to thank Penrith City Council and Penrith Panthers for their hospitality and assistance during the highly-successful weekend.

Following the decision by Little Athletics Australia to not proceed with the nationwide roll out at this stage, Little Athletics NSW has decided to utilise an opt-in option for centres wishing to offer the On-Track program in their community.


Little Athletics NSW will be covering the licence fee for the program, which caters to all five skills levels for ages 6-10, and will be providing support and resources in the coming months to participating centres.
