REGISTERING ON THE NEW GAMEDAY PLATFORM

GameDay is a new registration system for the 2021/22 season. Therefore even if your child is a returning athlete you will need to log in as a New Participant when you log in for the first time.

 

ACTIVE KIDS VOUCHERS

The $100 State Government Active Kids vouchers can be used towards your membership. It is recommended that you apply for your voucher prior to commencing the registrations process so you have the number ready. You can apply for this voucher by CLICKING HERE. The voucher number you receive for each child should be added on the final page before payment. It is recommended that you register your child with the same name that appears on your Medicare Card as this will match the record in the Active Kids Voucher system.

 

TRIAL MEMBERS

Trial memberships are only available to those who are new to Little Athletics. It is recommended that you don’t use an Active Kids voucher for this as if you do want to continue, the voucher cannot be held as a credit for your full registration.

 

REGISTERING MULTIPLE CHILDREN

If you are registering multiple children there will be an option on the first page to selected first, second, third and fourth child.  Please only select one type at a time and move through the process for each child individually. Once the process for each child is complete you will be able to add additional children before payment.

 

AGE GROUPS

If unsure of your child’s age group click here. You won’t however need this information when registering as it will automatically calculate the correct age group when you add their date of birth.

 

PROOF OF AGE

Proof of age is required for all new members. This may be a birth certificate, passport or health book. You can upload this document during the registration process or bring it along to your Centre on your first day to be sighted.

DUAL MEMBERS WITH ATHLETICS NSW (ANSW)

For Athletes aged U12-U17, you will have the option to select if you would like your child to be a Dual Member with ANSW. The ANSW Dual Membership is free and entitles you to access to all ANSW competitions including State Championships, the opportunity to qualify for a NSW team to compete at Nationals, and importantly an opportunity to transition into senior athletics. Athletics NSW memberships for the 2021/2022 will be open mid to late September 2021 and you will be sent more information to complete the registration process at this time.

About Mac Hunter

Macquarie Hunter Athletics Club is based at Hunter Sports Centre at Glendale and enjoys international class facilities for all Track and Field Events. It caters for Little Athletics: Tots (3 & 4 year olds) and the Little Athletics NSW age groups from u/6s to u/17s. We also cover Senior Athletes from 17s right through to Masters age groups  & AWD athletes.

The club was formed  in 2008 through the amalgamation of two Athletics clubs that were based out of the Hunter Sports Centre facility (Macquarie Shores and Hunter Track & Field)

Our club focuses on the full spectrum of abilities and interests from AWD Athletes, Social athletes, Club competitors, Amateur representatives through to Professional Athletes.

What we do

Throughout the Track and Field Season (September – March) on a weekly basis we run: club carnival on Friday Nights from 5:30pm, AWD events commencing approx 9-10:30am on Saturdays & Wednesday night training 5:30pm – 7:30pm.

We will be running graded events (for U/13’s +)  in addition to the normal Little A’s age events on our Friday night carnivals and senior athletes will also be welcome to join our u/17’s programmed events.

FREE “On-Track” training access is available for non- Seniors during the athletics season on Wednesday’s starting at 5:30pm and finishing at 7:30pm. Coaching assistance will be provided when available.

Friday Night carnivals will have 4 events for the younger groups and 5+ for the older age groups (U/8 +).

Enjoy

We hope to make this year a memorable one for the club both on and off the track, keeping the philosophy of “Bringing Out The Best In All Athletes” and incorporating the committee’s vision of “Making Athletics a Fun Social Event for the Whole Family”.

To all our athletes and parents, we wish you a very happy, healthy and fun athletics season that will hopefully bring out the best in you and we encourage all to embrace the sportsmanship and friendship the club has to offer this season.

Have a great 2021-2022 season!
