Intersport Partner With Little Athletics ACT and Athletics ACT
Athletes from aged 5 to 95 will share the same registration after a historic sponsorship deal between sporting goods retailer Intersport (formerly Sportsmans Warehouse), Little Athletics ACT and Athletics ACT.
Sportmans Warehouse — a proud registration patch sponsor of Little Athletics ACT for the last three years — joined Intersport, Australia’s fastest growing region sporting brand, in July 2019. Intersport has 77 stores across Australia which are locally owned and operated and sell a wide range of sporting apparel from the world’s leading brands. They have two stores in the ACT, at 20 Whyalla Street Fyshwick and 13/10 Gribble St, Gungahlin ACT 2912.
Little Athletics ACT and Athletics ACT are delighted to have Intersport on board as the Registration Patch Sponsor for 2019/2020. The joint sponsorship agreement is a big step towards a one sport model for athletics in the ACT Region.
Renée Cassell, the Executive Officer of Little Athletics ACT stated that “we are excited that Intersport has agreed to expand their partnership to include Athletics ACT so we could have one chest number for all registered ACT athletes. We are looking forward to working with Intersport as they continue to offer an array of athletics equipment to the Canberra Community”.
James Kaan, the Executive Officer at Athletics ACT had this to say – “We are very pleased with the outcome of this partnership. To have every athlete across Little Athletics ACT and Athletics ACT participating with a uniform chest number for the season is a significant step towards a better connected sport and we thank Intersport for providing us with the support to achieve this. We look forward to showcasing Intersport as a partner to the sport of Athletics here in the ACT and hope our members support them by popping into their Gungahlin or Fyshwick stores and checking out their range of sporting and in particular athletics equipment.”
Becoming part of the Intersport group allows us to remain independently owned and still continue to work with community sport as we have always done for the last 36 years in Canberra.
On the joint sponsorship deal, Intersport’s Alannah Magee said, “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to continue our sponsorship of Little Athletics ACT and Athletics ACT and wish everyone an exciting and fun season ahead.”

Dual Registered Athletes (LAACT/AACT):
How do I know what my bib number is?
When you registered with a Little Athletics ACT centre for 2019-2020 you would have been assigned a bib number, you may have already collected this from the centre. This is the same number you will have with Athletics ACT as well.
I only received 1 bib from my little athletics centre, how do I get a second bib?
All dual registered Little Athletics members can pick-up their second bib from any Athletics ACT events.
Can I stitch my bib number to my Little Athletics uniform?
If your centre uniform is the same for both little athletics and senior athletics then yes, if you have a different uniform then it is advised you only pin your number on so you can wear on both uniforms
