The Little Athletics NSW Annual Conference is held each year in conjunction with the Annual General Meeting and aims to provide centre representatives and zone coordinators the opportunity to: listen and learn about what is happening in the world of Little Athletics and how other centres operate in the state; find out more about how and why things are done or why they are not; engage with selected presenters applying their knowledge to Little Athletics settings; attend workshops, feedback sessions, forums and networking sessions; share ideas and opinions about matters which may benefit their centre and/or the individual personally; meet and socialise with many other people involved in Little Athletics with excellent opportunities to make new friends/contacts within the organisation.
The Little Athletics NSW Conference alternates each year between a one-day forum held in the Sydney metropolitan area (odd years) and a two-day forum held in regional NSW (even years).
The 2020 Little Athletics Annual General Meeting & Conference will be held Friday 17th – Sunday 19th July 2020, at West’s Nelson Bay, Port Stephens, 88 Shoal Bay Road.
