Little Athletics Suspended
As of mid-March 2020, all Little Athletics events have been suspended or cancelled due to Covid19. Our season came to a grinding halt which was a great shame. The State and National Championships were cancelled, along with all other sporting events
In line with directives from Little Athletics Australia, Little Athletics Victoria and the Government, there will be no Cross Country events at all in 2020, or at the very least, the LAVic State Cross Country Championships May be held if Government restrictions are lifted.
All training groups have also been suspended and Monash Council has locked down the clubrooms, restricting access during the lock down period.
The Committee has not met since the AGM due to social distancing laws and other reasons, but once we do meet we will be discussing the 2020/21 season and what we can do to help the Waverley families leading into the Summer season.
We are here for our members and we will do what ever we can to ensure we can provide your children with sport on the other side of Covid19.
Please follow all government directions, stay safe and we will see you once all of this is over. Remember to check our website and Facebook page for any updates as they come through.

Little Athletics is a Centre based Track & Field competition for children aged between 5 and 15. For more details check out What is Little Athletics?
Waverley Little Athletics Centre is based at Central Reserve Athletics Track in Glen Waverley, is affiliated with Little Athetics Victoria and is part of the Southern Metropolitan Region (SMR). Not near Glen Waverley? Find your nearest Centre.
Because Little Athletics is a totally voluntary organisation, the Centre cannot operate without the assistance of parents each week in fulfilling the many and varied duties required. These include officiating at an event; managing an age group; recording results; working in the canteen; to name just a few. Additional assistance is always required on the Centre committees and all parents are encouraged to become involved. Little Athletics is one of the few sports where parents can become fully involved in their child's sporting interests.

15/06/2020 - Project Complete at Central Reserve
Popped down to the track yesterday and had a quick look at our new High Jump and Long Jump runways! They certainly do look fantastic.
A massive thank you to Monash City Council and contractors for delivering this massive project, long overdue.
The new High Jump fan replaces the original which was laid in the early 1970’s and the new Long Jump runway and pits replace the existing which was installed in 2000.
I’d like to extend my thanks to all WLAC members both past and present who were part of this project - from the initial idea of looking into new facilities, to obtaining quotes, submitting a proposal, chasing up details and ensuring this was delivered.
Also, the track has gone dormant so if you head down to the track and see the grass is not looking too good, don’t stress!
Just behind us, the central reserve grandstand is also under construction/renovation, a $1.3m project being delivered in Monash.
