Step 1/6: Let's get started
Step 1/6: Let's get started

We will be reverting back to 'season memberships' for 2024/25, as part of the agreement between Athletics NSW (our parent organisation) and Little Athletics NSW to have joint operations going forward.  2024/25 season memberships will be able to be purchased from August 1st, with the new season running from September 1st, 2024 through to 31st August, 2025 (NB - Athletics Wollongong are unlikley to commence our own 2024/25 track and field competition until October 9th).

To bridge 2023/24 Season Registrations from now until that September 1st date, discounted memberships are now available (note that these are only useful for people who are not current members but wish to compete in Winter State Championships, for example):

  • Until the end of May: Open ($95), Concession ($85), Junior/Youth ($80)
  • From June until the end of August: Open ($80), Concession ($80), Junior/Youth ($80)

It hasn't been announced yet, but we anticipate something similar to work for those who purchased the 365 day-membership that was available last season.  That is, you'll be able to buy a discounted membership when your existing one elapses, to bridge the remainder of 2024/25 at a discounted price. 


Given that the membership offerings for Season 2024/25 are still under discussion between ANSW and LANSW the below is mostly just indicative of the types likely to be available from August 1st and the possible pricing.

SPECIAL - Uni Students

Going to uni?  New to the area?  Want to try track and field?  Athletes new to AW and attending Wollongong Uni can contact us for a registration discount code that will take $40 off membership costs (NB - Trialling category will still be $15, but if you wish to upgrade to another level of membership after your visit, then the discount will apply to that upgrade cost).

Active Kids Voucher

School students may use their $50 Active Kids Vouchers to help pay registration fees. Obtain your Active Kids Voucher number before signing up and then enter it during the registration process.  Ensure that is applied before paying; it can't be added retroactively.

Do not photograph

During our club evenings, photographs are often taken for historical records of club acivities or club publicity. If you do not wish your photograph to be taken, please speak to the club President to ensure your wishes are complied with.


(Note that the 'New Member' button is for those who haven't joined an ANSW-affiliated club since Season 2018/19 - not those just new to Athletics Wollongong.  If you're switching from another club, you'll still pick the Returning Member button.  Accessing the registration console from AW's site here, alerts ANSW that you're joining Athletics Wollongong and not rejoining your previous club).
