Manly Warringah Little Athletics and Sydney Pacific enter into a Memorandum of Understanding

Manly Warringah Little Athletics has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Sydney Pacific Athletic Club.

The move has been backed by the Manly Warringah Little Athletics committee and received overwhelming support from the members of Sydney Pacific Athletic Club.

The move is in line with the OneAthletics initiative announced nationally last year, which aims to provide a single pathway for participation in athletics for everyone age from five to 80-plus.

The two clubs will collaborate in the development of athletes, officials and coaches, in a move that has many potential benefits for athletics across North East Metropolitan Sydney.

The two highly successful clubs will also explore moves towards the next phase of a potential merger.

As the 2020-21 summer competition of ANSW commences, the first step of the MOU will see Sydney Pacific (SYP) registered athletes compete under the name Manly Warringah Athletics (MWA).

More information will be released as we make progress on joint initiatives.


Manly Warringah Little Athletics is one of the oldest, largest and most successful Centres in NSW having begun on the Northern Beaches in 1970 – now in its 50th season. The following five Clubs compete together at Narrabeen on a Saturday morning from September to March:
Cromer   Manly   Peninsula   Seaforth   Wakehurst

The Clubs of MWLAC are differentiated by the colour of their uniform, and their Wednesday night training location. Families usually choose a club based upon their friendships, or where they live and go to school. Individual Club Training is held on a Wednesday evening and Centre Training (for specialist athletes from U9+) on a Monday evening at Narrabeen. Please select the “Centre Information” drop-down tab above for complete information regarding Registration, Training, Competition, Season Calendar and much more.

Traditionally, competition is held for 20 weeks at the Sydney Academy of Sport, Wakehurst Parkway, Narrabeen on Saturday mornings from 7:30am (with the occasional Friday night twilight session in January from 5:30pm).

The Manly Warringah Centre encourages participation in a large number of events for enjoyment and skill development combined with achieving personal bests and having fun. It caters for male and female athletes from U/7 to U/17 and welcomes our U/6 Pocket Rockets half way through the season – commencing in January
