Registration for the 2019-20 Season will open on the 1 October 2019.

Membership is open to athletes 12 years of age and over (or subject to an exemption). Athletes under 12 years of age may be interested in joining a Little Athletics WA centre, a great way to start athletics. There is no maximum age limit and in addition to Athletics WA competitions, the Masters WA Club providing additional competition opportunities for athletes over the age of 30.

Membership allows athletes to participate in Athletics WA competitions (see 2018-19 Track & Field Season). There are two pathways to membership – either through an affiliated Athletics WA club or registering directly as an Athletics WA independent athlete. View the 2018-19 AWA Fee Structure here.

Athletes who wish to join a club can find further information in the Clubs Directory. Athletes can register for a club through the AWA Registration Portal, by selecting their chosen club from the list. Clubs determine their own fees (often dependent on their membership inclusions) of which $45 is paid to Athletics WA for regular competitors. The advantage of joining a club is that the weekly entry fee is $18, compared to $25 for independent members.

The independent membership provides an option for those not looking for the support of a club. This season there are two options for Athletics WA independent membership - regular competitor or casual competitor.

Regular competitor
The regular competitor membership ($50) entitles the athlete to compete in all 2018-19 Athletics WA Track & Field Season competitions and the 2019 Winter Season (entry fee of $25 for independent members will be payable when entering your events each week).

Casual competitor

The casual competitor membership ($20) entitles the athlete to compete in up to 3 competitions in the Athletics WA Track & Field Season, plus State Championships (entry fee of $25 for independent members will be payable when entering your events each week). Athletes can upgrade their membership to a regular competitor should they wish to compete in more than 3 competitions by contacting Athletics WA.

Please note athletes registered with a Little Athletics club are not automatically members of Athletics WA. Little Athletics athletes can register directly with Athletics WA (select Independent AWA membership or join a 'senior' club). Similarly, Wheelchair Sports athletes should do the same.

If you have previously been a member of Athletics WA or an affiliated club, you will be able to login to update personal details and renew your membership. If you have any issues logging into the membership portal, simply reset your password or contact the Athletics WA office for further assistance.

Existing members who wish to change their club affiliation will need to contact the club they wish to transfer to arrange the transfer prior to renewing membership.



Clubs are a great part of Athletics. It is a great way to meet new people, new training partners, and new friends and create a team environment in what can be a lonely and individual pursuit. There are some great clubs in WA that you can be a part of!
