Little Athletics NSW has put together a series of Basic Event Fact Sheets and videos, aimed at providing centre volunteers with the essential knowledge for helping at an event at the local centre.

For a quick overview the following video is a great reference:


The fact sheets are a suitable resource for people with little or no knowledge of the sport and cover such things as:

  • ages and correct specifications for the various age groups
  • basic instruction on how to do the event
  • basic rules
  • basic officiating procedures
  • safety considerations
  • handy tips for conducting the event at centre level

Please note that LANSW have changed some details such as shot put weights etc, however these facts sheets are still a great resource in getting to know the basics.

You can download copies of the Fact Sheets, by clicking on the links below.
