Do children need to wear a uniform?
Yes, all registered athletes must wear an approved centre uniform when competing in Little Athletics competitions. Kings Langley Little A’s uniforms are available from the Uniform Shop on a Friday evening or when picking up your registration pack. The uniform consists of singlet/crop top, and shorts/briefs/bike pants.
When do the children compete?
Our centre runs on a Friday evening. We start at 6.30pm for all age groups, with walk events starting at 6:15pm. Age groups will finish at different times during the evening. Finish time is determined by a number of factors including the number of events that they participate in, the size of the age group, the number of parent helpers that an Age Manager has assisting them.
Tiny tots finish at 8:00pm.
Can I just drop off my child?
No, we are not a baby-sitting service. We expect that a parent or other responsible adult stays at the ground. If you can’t stay it is your responsibility to ensure that your child’s age manager is notified of the adult who is responsible for your child while you are not there.
What is expected of parents?
Because Little Athletics is a totally voluntary organisation, Kings Langley Little A’s cannot operate without the assistance of parents each week in fulfilling the many and varied duties required. We have a roster which has each age group allocated to a task every third week. This includes set up, pack up, BBQ and Canteen. The task will be the same for the entire season.
We also include assistance in running our Friday evening competitions. These include officiating at an event; managing an age group or assisting with an age group; or recording results.
If your child is selected to compete at a Championship event parents will be rostered on to one of the duties that has been allocated to our Centre.
Additional assistance is always required on our committees and all parents are encouraged to become involved. Little Athletics is one of the few sports where parents can become fully involved in their child’s sporting interests.
