  2016/2017 Summer athletics season
Our 2016/2017 season will commence on Saturday, 10 September 2016. Our first week of competition will be for U7-U17 athletes only. Tiny Tots and U6 athletes will start the following week on Saturday, 17 September. More...

  Technical & Equipment Officer needed
Duties of this position include: ensuring that our equipment is in good order; monitoring the setting up of equipment for each weekly competition; checking that equipment is dismantled after competition and correctly stored back in the equipment room. This job will be somewhat easier that in previous seasons with the introduction of our new light-weight timing gates. However, it requires a person prepared to arrive at the oval by 6:30am each Saturday morning to commence the distribution of equipment on the oval, ready for the start of competition at 8:00am. If you are interested in this position, contact the President, Damian Dorman by e-mail to

The UNIFORM SHOP will be open between 7:30am and 11:00am on the first two weeks of the season (10 September and 17 September). It will close at 10:00am on 24 September and will be closed altogether on 1 October because of the long weekend. Normal openiing hours will resume on 8 October. More details on the uniforms page.

  It's not too late to Register!
Although our Registration Day has passed, it's not too late to register for the 2016/2017 season. The easiest way to register is ON-LINE. Alternatively, you can register on your first attendance at competition. Even if you register on-line before hand, it will still be necessary to come to the oval to purchase uniforms (if necessary) and to pick up athlete numbers and age patches, and other documentation. For athletes registering with the Centre for the first time, it will also be necessary to provide 'proof of age'. Registration and uniform purchases will be available from 7:30am on Saturday mornings. For more information, contact the Registrar by e‑mail to

New timing gates
Our current electronic timing gates were introduced at HDLAC in the 2012/2013 season and after four years of solid use, the Committee has decided to replace our aging, worn out gates with new, state-of-the-art timing gates. This system will synchronise with a number of other systems that will be introduced progressively during the season. The new gates are very light weight and very easy to set up and our new Track Officer (whoever than might be!) will find them a delight to use. Check out the brochure describing the system.

Location of Pennant Hills Oval
Pennant Hills No.2 (Ern Holmes) oval is located in Britannia Street, Pennant Hills. There's plenty of parking and there'll be signs showing where to go. More...

HDLAC Bushfire Survival Plan
If there is a danger of bushfires anywhere in the Lane Cove National Park, we will cancel our athletics competition prior to the Saturday morning competition day. It is likely that a decision to cancel would be made no later than the preceding Friday night and this would be notified to members by a notice on our website and by broadcast email. There would never be a situation where competition has commenced on a Saturday morning when there is any danger of bushfires. We would never be in the position of having to send members home from the oval. More...
