The Athletics SA Constitution is essentially a set of rules and procedures that details the key operational requirements of Athletics SA. In addition to the Constitution, Athletics SA also creates policies (endorsed by the Athletics SA Board), which need to be read in conjunction with the Constitution.
SA Athletics Rules (By Laws)
Contained below are various Athletics SA policies and procedures that apply to Athletics SA clubs, registered participants, events, and competitions. There are also a number of forms that can be downloaded.
Important: From the 1st of January 2011, new changes to child protection laws in South Australia come into effect. It is now a requirement that all those considered to be working with children have a valid police clearance. This applies, but is not limited to Coaches, Officials, Team Managers, Athletics SA staff, Child Safe Officer, Volunteers (as applicable), Registrars, and Member Protection Information Officers. Anyone involved with Athletics SA or its affiliates in any capacity, is strongly encouraged to read Part C of the Athletics SA Member Protection Policy. For those individuals that volunteer with Athletics SA and its affiliated clubs, the fee is waived if the correct procedure is followed. Please click the link to review the Police Checks Procedure. For more information, and to complete the form for lodgement, please visit the SAPOL website. Athletics SA has also put together the following Fact Sheet for clubs.
