2020/21 Cross Country Season... ready, set, go?!

Our Summer season is over and the Winter Cross Country season is about to begin! 

WLAC joins in with the Knox LAC program, who run at various local parks and venues throughout the eastern suburbs.

A further reduced registration fee will apply to new members for Cross Country. There is no additional charge for those who are already WLAC members. 

Waverley LAC is a Covid Safe Centre. Please refer to the official WLAC online Covid Statement for more information.

We are here for our members and we will do what ever we can to ensure we can provide your children with access to our sport. 

Please follow all government directions, stay safe and we will see you at Central Reserve very soon.

Remember to check our website and Facebook page for any updates as they come through.

Cross Country Calendar 2021 (Updated 15/04/2021)

Little Athletics

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.
