Online Registrations ONLY for the 2017-18 season. Registrations open 1st August 2017

 SEASON DATES

The senior athletics season predominantly runs from October to September each year. This year the season commences with The Grass Games on 16th September 2017 and concludes on 30th September 2018.

Our centre runs each Friday evening from 5.45 pm to around 8.15 pm at GREENWAY OVAL NO 2 (LOWER OVAL), SHEPHERDS DRIVE, CHERRYBROOK. The season will commence the beginning of September. Check the website for more details.
 

PARENT RESPONSIBILITY

Athletics is run entirely by volunteers and it is condition of membership that any athlete 16 years or younger be accompanied by a parent or guardian each Friday evening. In order for the evening to run smoothly and efficiently we require parents to assist on Friday evenings. This can be anything from helping on the BBQ to being an age manager or just helping the age manager run the events during the evening – timekeeping, measuring, writing down results etc. None of the jobs are very difficult and we are happy to teach you. We would encourage you to get involved as it makes the evening more enjoyable and go quicker!!!

Pic2Go QR CODES

Pic2Go Australia is a marketing tool which utilises photo sharing on social media platforms through the process of automated photo tagging. All Athletics NSW athlete bibs for the 2017/18 season will contain a 2D QR code which Pic2Go’s processing system uses to match photos with the designated athlete. Once the photos have been uploaded to the Pic2Go system, the branded photos are published instantly to Social Media Platforms, automatically tagging athletes and members. It is important to note, due to member protection, members must opt in to this service.

 Pic2Go Process

  1. Members will receive two (2) Competitions Bibs.

  2. The QR code on the competition bibs contains the athlete’s registration information. All the athlete needs to do is go to the ANSW Pic2go portal (www.pic2go.com.au/nswathletics), enter their bib number and follow the prompts. This will then allow photos captured of you while wearing the bib downloaded direct to your Facebook page. This link may change for some events, and will be received in a post event email.

  3. Images are taken on ANSW dedicated camera, where available, and uploaded to not only Athletics NSW’s Pic2Go server but also the club’s involved servers as well

  4. The Pic2Go System automatically posts the photos from events onto the athletes Facebook Page in a branded album

  5. Athletes have the option to delete any photos they do not want shared on their page before they go public

  6. Athletics NSW and Clubs will be able to track the impressions of the Pic2Go system through Social Media Reach Reports

TIMING TAGS

A Timing Tag a device which records a participant’s time and performance across an event. Timing Tags are utilised by Athletics NSW at all out of stadia events; including both the Waratah Run Series and RunNSW Series. The purpose of providing an individualised Timing Tag to members is to deliver a greater benefit through a more efficient ‘Check In’ process for events and competitions.

Timing Tag will again be offered to all ‘full athlete’ memberships for the 2017/18 season. Athletes will receive their Timing Tag at their first out of stadia event. Replacement Cost for a Timing Tag is $30.

INTRODUCTION OF THE ATHLETICS NSW APP

The 2017/18 season will see the roll out of the new Athletics NSW Application (Mobile App). The App will prove to be a great step forward for the sport of Athletics and will enable all stakeholders (members, club, officials, participants, volunteer, etc.) the ability to have a whole host of information and capabilities at their fingertips. 

The App has undergone continual testing over the winter period with it being utilised at some of the Winter Pre-Departure Meets; and is projected to be launched to the public in time for the 2017/18 Competition Season.

The app will have a range of benefits that will be rolled out over the season:

  1. Provide live results for in-stadia events in a more appealing format

  2. Have field events live, throw-by-throw and jump-by-jump rather than posted on the website immediately following the event

  3. Provide an online check-in process from an athlete’s phone

  4. Seed field events and allow officials to input field results in real time

  5. Link directly to ANSW Live Stream

  6. Link to ANSW Active Timing for out of stadia events

  7. Link directly to ANSW Social Media

  8. Payment Gateway for membership registration and event entry (if applicable)

  9. Provide Athlete Portal which houses result information and allows segmentation of these results by age, club, gender, etc.

  10. Training portal - allowing for wearables data to be uploaded into athlete portal

  11. Analytics - Tracking and understanding of athlete purchases & behaviours

  12. Calendar of events imbedded in the system

  13. Promotions and offers from sponsors built within the system
