St George LAC conducts a summer athletics program on Friday evenings at Olds Park (Penshurst) for children/youths aged 4 to 16.
Registrations open at the start of August and our club season runs from mid-September to mid-March (the Tiny Tots season is slightly shorter).  See the Calendar for details.
In addition to club activities, members are able to compete in all LANSW and ANSW organised carnivals available for their Age, including the Track & Field and Cross-Country events which follow the club season in April to August.

Athletes participate in groups according to age (as set out here:    Age Groups).

The mix of running, throwing and jumping events we offer varies according to age and is set out in Event by Age Group.

Tiny Tots (“under 5”) are provided with age-appropriate running, jumping, throwing and game-based activities.   Athletes in the under 6 and above age groups participate in a weekly ‘competition program each Friday evening which encourages self-improvement, not just winning.  They can view their results online each week and have the satisfaction of seeing their performances improve week by week.

Start times are staggered by Age Group as set out on the FAQs page.   Duration of the ‘meet’ varies with age (shorter for younger children as they do fewer events).


A full Inter-club Championships program available to all athletes (“under 7” and above), leading to State and even National titles for older athletes.

** From this season, the inter-club competition & championships program is integrated across the 2 state athletics bodies – LANSW & ANSW – meaning no more duplication of carnivals and no need to join 2 clubs to participate in all carnivals of interest. **


Our home ground is Olds Park, Forest Rd, Penshurst where we have access to a 400m track, 110m track, 4 rubber-surfaced Long/Triple jump runups, Javelin runup (grass), 3 Shot Put rings, 3 Discus rings and 4 High Jump stations as well as a dedicated area (including 50m Track) for Tiny Tot activities.  Our grass running tracks are located on premium sporting grounds maintained to a very high standard by Georges River Council.  Track events (other than Tiny Tots) feature electronic starting and capture of race times.


Registrations open at the start of August and available places can fill very quickly.   To join our club, visit the How to Join page and follow all the steps there.  When registering, you may be able to use an “Active & Creative Kids voucher” for each eligible child to reduce your fees. For more information see NSW Government Kids Vouchers.  Financial assistance (limited) is available for those experiencing financial hardship as set out in the LANSW Athlete Assistance Program 2023.
