New South Wales Masters Athletics caters for male and female athletes aged 30 and over, who live in New South Wales. We are the State Association for Masters athletes, as well as a Club affiliated with Athletics NSW, and we promote, encourage and host events specifically for those age groups.

Our governing body is the Australian Masters Athletics Association (AMA). Our competitions run in 5 year age groups (eg: W30=ages 30-34, M45=ages 45-49) across all track and field events, and we represent fitness, fun and friendship across a range of athletic events and activities.

Masters athletics is all about PARTICIPATION, so there are no qualification standards required for any masters event held worldwide. If you're joining your local Athletics NSW club as a masters age athlete, by joining our State Association as well will give you  many additional benefits and opportunities, like setting masters records and competing at many different levels of competiton around the world.    read more here
