SLLAC Inclusion Policy
The South Launceston Little Athletics Centre supports and facilitates the inclusion of all people and as such have adopted the following inclusion policy for all members to support.
The South Launceston Little Athletics Centre has designed a handbook especially for new families joining the centre. It has information about our centre, uniforms, fees, parent help, competitions, ticket books etc. etc. The handbook answers all the questions (or most) a new family joining athletics for the first time has.
A handbook will be put in each new child’s bag upon registration.
The correct badge placement is shown in the TLAA Information Manual – Please ensure that all previous year’s badges are removed from uniforms.
