Katoomba District Athletics Club is a long established athletics centre in the upper Blue Mountains. Established in 1973 and running out of Katoomba as a Little Athletics Club, it now operates from Pitt Park in Wentworth Falls and is affiliated with both Little Athletics NSW and Athletics NSW.
Participants are drawn mainly from Lawson to Blackheath, but members are welcome from across the Blue Mountains. We cater for athletes aged 4 – 17 years in Little Athletics competition and athletes aged 12 years upwards in Athletic NSW sanction competition.
Our competition program runs from October to March each year on Saturday mornings between 8:30am and 12 noon subject to weather and Council restrictions. We offer most Little Athletics NSW events and a restricted set of Athletics NSW events (ie do not offer pole vault or hammer throw).
Our ground at Pitt Park Wentworth Falls has a 7 lane 400m athletics track, two dual run-up long jump pits, two discus cages and two shotput circles. We also include High Jump and Javelin in our programs. The centre provides coaching in select events by accredited coaches on set afternoons during the competition season depending on demand.
A number of our athletes compete at both Little Athletics and Athletics NSW sanctioned meets. We have regular and good representation at Little Athletics Region and State Championships, as well as NSW Athletics Country Championships and other meets.
