Competitions are conducted in accordance with I.A.A.F., LAA NSW and Local Rules.
The main program of events begins between 7.30 am – 8.00am. However, events such as the 1500 metre run, race walks and 300 metre hurdles are held closer to 7.30am (see below). For age groups who run 3000 metres, this event is held at 5.45pm on Mondays.
Each age group is run by an Age Manager who controls and leads the group from event to event and supervises their competition. The Age Manager is assisted by a team of parent helpers to assist in the running of the competition. Athletes compete against each other in a variety of events on each competition day. The running events are divided into heats where the athletes are graded by ability by the Age Manager on a weekly basis.
The Manly Warringah Little Athletics Centre welcomes visitors who are registered with other NSW Little Athletics Centres to its weekend competition. Each visit is $10. All visitors must report to the computer room to be entered into the Manly Warringah Little Athletics Centre system and be given a competition number prior to competing at each visit. Children wishing to try Little Athletics before deciding if they would like to register are able to trial for 2 weeks (trial fee applies). All trialists must report to the computer room before attending competition.
