We welcome athletes of almost all ages. We do have a minimum age - Athletes must be 12 years of age, or subject to an exemption, and a registered member of Athletics WA before being able to compete in the 2017 – 2018 season. If younger then this, then check out Little Athletics WA, it is the best way to start Athletics. However you can continue to compete with us for as long as you like as their is no maximum age limit. We do have a club affiliated with us that also provides additional competition for athletes aged 30yrs+ in the Masters WA club.
In order to compete in Athletics WA competitions all athletes must be members of Athletics WA either directly through a 'senior' club or directly with Athletics WA as an independent. The independent option may be useful for those looking to only compete once or twice during a season, or for those not looking for the support of a club.
Little Athletics athletes are not automatically members of Athletics WA but can register directly with Athletics WA and select LAWA as their membership type, similarly Wheelchair Sports athletes should do the same.
Athletes who have previously been members of Athletics WA will already have a profile in the system and should login to update personal details or to renew membership.
Should an existing member wish to change their club affiliation, then please contact the Athletics WA Competition Manager Stephen Stingemore at firstname.lastname@example.org first to arrange the transfer before renewing membership.
