Code of Conduct

Little Athletics NSW believes that young people involved in sport have a right to participate in a safe and supportive environment. Ryde Athletics Centre shares and applies the Little Athletics NSW policy in this area.

Little Athletics is a community activity, which utilises athletics to help foster the development of Australia’s children, and as such, endorses and applies Codes of Conduct.

Codes of Conduct

The privilege of membership with the Little Athletics NSW (LANSW) and by association, Ryde Athletics Centre, may be withdrawn where it is determined that a person’s conduct is inconsistent with the mission of LANSW and in clear breach of the Codes of Conduct.



These Behavioural Guidelines aim to give everyone a guide to what is expected of them if they are part of Little Athletics, be it participating, volunteering or standing on the sideline cheering for their child, relative or friend. The guidelines set down what is an acceptable standard of conduct and behaviour and reflect the principles upon which Little Athletics is based.

Acceptance of, and compliance with these guidelines will ensure that Little Athletes will develop good sporting behaviours and be an enjoyable sporting experience, encouraging them to remain involved in sport or otherwise be active throughout their lives.

We ask that everyone take the time to read the Behavioural Guidelines, which were given when you registered, and make a personal commitment to always behave in accordance with the principles contained therein.
