End of season Fun Day!


We are looking forward to celebrating our End of Season Fun Day with you this Saturday 26th March.

The music will be pumping, the snags will be free and the smiles will be huge!

We will start the mornings activities at 8:30am.

Each age group will have the 60m dash plus lots of fun activities including our awesome ‘Welly Wanging’ challenge, the ever fun jumping castle and lets not forget our end of year egg throwing comp!

We will also be running out Ross Forster 800m handicap race. Age managers have all nominated a representative from their age group and all the athletes will race at the same time. The handicap start time for each of the athletes is based on their seasons PB. If all the representative athletes compete to the best of their ability we will see a very tight finish!

Age Groups will be called to present end of year Trophies. Your child must have attended 70% of competition points weeks to receive a trophy.

All parents are welcomed on the field. Please get involved and enjoy the day!

We will also be having a clean up this Saturday after Fun Day, so if you are able to stick around after the festivities to help, it would be very much appreciated.

Our Major Awards Presentation will be held at Ryde Eastwood Leagues Club on May 15th.Further information will be sent soon.

See you at the track!

State Championships – duties

Congratulations to those Ryde Athletes who have made it to the McDonalds 2022 State Track and Field Championships at Sydney Olympic Park on 19-20 March 2022.

As with Zone and Region, we need parent helpers to assist the officials and you are a vital component to the success of the event.

• FIRSTLY, we need a TEAM MANAGER who is the “go to” person for issues during the event, does protests, ensures parents are turning up and so on. We need TWO each day.
Sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0e4cabae2ba7face9-team

This year, LANSW are utilising an online sign up program, which allows you to select the specific event that you wish to help with. The online sign up does operate on a first in first served basis. It MUST be done by Wednesday, 16th March. So, don’t wait. Sign up now! Other centres are already onto it.

• Ryde LAC needs to fill twelve (12) helper slots for general events which are based on an event, not a time. All finish times are approximate only and helpers will be expected to stay at their duty until they are replaced, or their allocated events are completed.

• AND, Ryde needs to provide one (1) helper for Relays (this is only for about an hour or so). This is not on the sign up so email me to claim that spot.

When our duties are full, please email me your availability and you can be a reserve for those who have signed up.

AFTER you have signed up, please email the Championships Officer of Ryde Little Athletics rydelittleachamps@gmail.com to let me know the slot day, time and event you have signed up for. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT as I need to make sure we fill our slots AND I need to email the completed list on 16th March. Our Team Manager also needs to know it.

The Parent Helper duty sign up is HERE – please put RYD in front of your name so others signing up can see how many Ryde parents have signed up already:


Helpers are reminded that for safety reasons you should wear enclosed shoes, not thongs or loose sandals, especially on throws events. If anyone turns up without closed in shoes, they will still be required to assist, but will be moved to another area.
Helpers are also reminded to be ‘sun safe’. They should set an example to the athletes by wearing appropriate clothing and hats, regularly applying sunscreen and hydrating.
Thanks everyone

Lynda Calder
Ryde AC Director and Championships Officer

✨No competition at Dunbar Park 5th March✨

Unfortunately after the weather we’ve been facing the grounds are far too wet to run any of our events 😞

On the upside, our volunteer thank you evening will go ahead! Make sure you’ve booked your tickets!

Also, if you have a perpetual trophy, Donna will be at the club on Saturday from 9-9:30am for you to return it. If that isn’t suitable please contact us and we can arrange an alternative.

Let’s hope for some sun next week so we can finally get back to the track 🤞
