WEST­ERN Syd­ney Lit­tle Ath­let­ics clubs are tak­ing reg­is­tra­tions now for the 2016/17 sea­son.

The sea­son is set to start on the morn­ing of Satur­day, Septem­ber 17 and will run un­til March 2017.

On­line reg­is­tra­tions for Colyton St Clair Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Cen­tre’s 33rd sea­son are now open.

Club coach­ing co-or­di­na­tor Robyn Koen said there was a va­ri­ety of sports avail­able for chil­dren of all ages.

“It’s a good way to get the kids out­side and keep them ac­tive,” Mrs Koen said.

“The older kids get to throw javelins, and there is dis­cus for kids aged three and up.

“We do shot put, run­ning, triple jump, long jump and high jump.”

Boys and girls aged four to 17 also are wel­come to sign up in per­son at Saun­ders Oval, St Clair, on Satur­day, Septem­ber 3 and Satur­day, Septem­ber 10 from 10am-1pm.

The club’s mem­ber­ship has been more than 240, and this year should be no dif­fer­ent on the back of the in­spi­ra­tional per­for­mances at the Rio Games.

In­quiries can be made by email­ing regis­trar@coly­ton­st­clair­lac.com.au.

Reg­is­tra­tions can be done on­line at coly­ton­st­clair lac.com.au.

As­pir­ing Mt Druitt ath­letes can reg­is­ter for the Mt Druitt Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Cen­tre on Satur­day from noon to 3pm at Plumpton Mar­ket­place, where uni­forms will also be for sale.

Those who have al­ready signed up on­line will need to at­tend the reg­is­tra­tion day in or­der to be as­signed a num­ber and col­lect their reg­is­tra­tion pack and uni­form.
