Welcome to the website of Hawkesbury City Athletics Centre.
Hawkesbury City Athletics Centre has a long and proud history, spanning almost 50 years. Established in the late 1960’s as Richmond Little Athletics and later renamed Hawkesbury City Little Athletics Centre, the club has helped thousands of children develop their sporting abilities and invest in a healthy and active lifestyle. In 2021, the Centre had a name change to Hawkesbury City Athletics Centre.
Hawkesbury City Athletics Centre operates at Tamplin Field in Hobartville, near Richmond. We are a family friendly and community focused not-for-profit sporting organisation that is operated entirely by our parent and family volunteers.
We are a junior sporting club, catering for children of all abilities, aged between 3 and 17 from across the Hawkesbury area. Our aim at HCAC is to promote fitness, have fun, make friends and encourage all family members to invest in a healthy and active lifestyle. We put an emphasis on personal improvement and participation and continually encourage our athletes to be the best that they can be.
Our programs at HCAC provide an array of athletic events including sprinting, middle and long distance running, hurdling, race walking, jumping (long, triple and high), throwing (discus, shot put and javelin) and cross country running. We also offer free training sessions and skills workshops to our registered athletes.
Hawkesbury City Athletics Centre operates all year round with two seasons:
Summer Season – September to March for Track & Field
Winter Season – March to July for Cross Country & Race Walking
The main ‘Summer Season’ attracts over 300 registered athletes to the club each year to participate in our Track and Field Program. Our weekly club competitions are held on a Tuesday night at Tamplin Field from 5:00pm. The season begins from the first week in September through to the first week in March, with a three week break over the Christmas/New Year period. Registrations open online each year in August.
Whether your child is wanting to develop their athletic skills, improve their fitness, learn something new, become a champion or make new friends, Little A’s at HCAC is perfect for them.
Participation is open to all young athletes – first timers and seasoned athletes alike.
Our registration fees are affordable and we are registered to accept the Active Kids $100 sport rebate vouchers.
