Wednesday Junior Waiting List

Wednesday Junior Development Group

Policy for waiting list

There is currently a lengthy waiting list to join the Junior Development Group. Ideally young athletes would join when they reach the age of 8 years, however this is not always possible.

All wishing to go onto the waiting list should complete a registration form which is available from the office at the Athletics Stadium at Kings Park.

The club wishes to be as inclusive as possible but also wishes to recruit the best athletes to the club to ensure a high level of performance across all age groups.

The policy on joining the group depends on the age when joining as follows:-

School years 3, 4 and 5 – entry to the Development Group for those in these school years will be on a first come, first served basis. However, priority may be given to children of parents who have older children who are members of the club and have competed for BAC. This may also apply to children of parents who either already are or are willing to commit to being regular volunteers for the club. There are numerous opportunities to volunteer.

School years 6 and upwards – the policy for entry to the Development Group is similar to the younger age group, however, priority will be given to those with proven athletics performances. When going on the waiting list, in addition to the completion of the registration, we will ask for a pro forma to be completed to include details of previous performances in athletics competitions. The pro forma can be downloaded here.
