Whether it’s your first time here or you’re making a comeback, we have something for everyone. Athletics isn’t only about track and field. Whether you are going for gold, looking to kick start your health journey, learn a new skill, meet new people or prepare for your fitness goals, athletics can help. From community-based participation, and beginners to elite performance, coaching courses, officiating, and volunteering, we have something for everyone.

Otherwise, if you are over the age of 11 and looking for a new way to stay fit or continue your passion for sport, you should check out becoming an Athlete.

Officials & Coaches

Every great Athlete is supported by a network of Coaches and Officials. As the backbone of community sport, we are always on the lookout for the next generation of Australian Officials and Coaches. 

As a growing sport throughout Australia, competitions are only achievable through volunteer support. To enable the continued development of athletics in WA, a greater volunteer presence is needed. The opportunity to officiate at Athletics West competitions will provide you with a broad and in-depth experience in all disciplines of the sport.

Athletics is supported by a range of volunteer, club and high-performance coaches across the state. To enable the continued development of athletics in WA, more coaches will be needed. The opportunity to coach Athletics will provide you with a broad range of opportunities from grassroots to the Olympics and Paralympics.
