Athletes who suffer from asthma should bring this condition to the attention of the respective Age Managers and always have their inhalers available. Many factors may trigger an asthma attack. Please ensure that your child is aware of his or her limitations by checking with your family doctor before competing.
Young children are prone to rapid dehydration and therefore all athletes MUST wear a hat, bring a flask of drinking water, 30+ Sun Blockout and a tracksuit or warm clothing.
Athletes who sustain injuries during training or competition or who are experiencing injuries sustained from other sports must obtain and lodge a Medical Certificate with the Centre Officer for Age Managers before competing again.
Many viral infections consistently go around and we strongly recommend to all parents that athletes take sufficient time to allow for a full recovery before being permitted to compete again. In the event of serious and/or prolonged illness a Medical Certificate may be requested before an athlete is allowed to recommence competition.
The Centre has St Johns Ambulance medical staff attend each week. If hospital treatment is necessary, it is assumed that parental permission is given, or if not, please advise your Club Secretary immediately in writing. Parents should be in attendance on Saturdays and at training to assist immediately should their child be injured.
AT REGISTRATION IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE PARENT/GUARDIAN TO ADVISE CLUB REGISTRARS OF ALL PRE-EXISTING MEDICAL CONDITIONS/TREATMENTS/MEDICATIONS THAT MAY AFFECT THE CHILD IN THE COURSE OF PARTICIPATION IN, OR TRAINING FOR LITTLE ATHLETICS
