Joining Waverley Little Athletics Centre Inc.
The new Track and Field (Summer) season starts on Sat 5th Oct 2019 and ends in March 2020.
Early bird fees finish 30th Sept. Family discount available.
Waverley Little Athletics is based at the Central Reserve Athletics Track.
We run on Saturday mornings with the warm-up starting at 8:45am and are usually finished by 11:30am. There are some Thursday evening twilight replacements when there is a state or region event on the Saturday. These start at 5:45pm and are finished by 8pm.
All Little Athletics Victoria registered athletes are welcome to compete with us but please wear your LAVic patch and visit the Admin table on your first visit so that we can record your results for the Results section of the website. This is the only way to get all your results as we don't give out tickets for the events.
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.

Good Afternoon all our magnificent WLAC families,
What a great meeting we had last week with our friends from Oakleigh LAC.
This week we are running our Walks program for the first time this season, we will hopefully some very special guest judges in attendance to help with our athletes technique and skill.
Last week was a bit disappointing in terms of parents turning up from 7:30 to help setup. A shout out to Mark Robinson for being the sole attendee at 7:30.
This week the Under 10 parents are on set up, so let's have a big turnout from 7:30am to get the arena ready.
We are keeping track of parent duty this season.
This week we need some help of a qualified first aider and some help in the canteen also please.

Good Morning All of our fantastic WLAC families,
Welcome to Week 8. This week we are running our first Twilight program THURSDAY night due to the SMR relays on Saturday. Please see the attached Program.
The following week – Sat 30th is the Waverley Games Day with Oakleigh Little Aths.
Setup this week is from 5pm. The Under 10 families are on duty to help with setup. I will need 4-5 parents to help us get the arena ready for competition.
PARENT DUTY ROSTER:
We need a First Aider and Canteen Helper for Twilight this week. Make sure your name is put down, either online or written down when arrived.
THROWS COACHING WITH MARK:
Still on this Thursday 5 – 6 pm. Discus and shotput.
PB ICY POLE LIST IS BACK:
Starts up this Twilight. Look on the noticeboard. U6 – U8 need to get
2 PB and U9 – U16 need to get 3 PBs the previous week for a free zooper dooper from the canteen.
SMR REGION RELAYS:
Any uniform tops, Subway patches, Coles badges – see us.
Just reiterating how to access results. RESULTS are uploaded to our
website: https://waverleylac.com.au  This is our primary results system, not ResultsHQ (which you would have received emails about from LAVic). Look under the Results Menu for Current Season Results. You can also print out results for each week, using Print Result Stickers.
Especially for the new families, if your child's results are not shown, it is because you still need to show your proof of age to our registrar, Neetasha. Any issues with your child’s results, please contact Katy (secretary).
So recapping, we are running a Twilight program this THURSDAY night, we are looking to start around 6:15pm, please arrive before 6pm so we can do the warmup and get a prompt start. The weather is looking good and we will hope to get through as quickly as possible. Just a further reminder, we will not be at Waverley this Saturday due to the relays.
Remember a hat , water and sunscreen for tomorrow.
That's all for now.
See the Under 10's from 5pm for setup, and everyone else from just before 6pm.

Good Morning to All our wonderful WLAC families,
What will the weather bring this week?? After 3 weeks of cancellations, it will be great to get back on the track and actually get a meeting started. The weather is looking good for no rain at this stage so we will keep our fingers crossed!!
This week the Under 9's are still on duty for early set-up from 7:30, I need 4-5 parents to help us get the track ready for competition. The more the merrier and makes the job that much easier.
Make sure your name is put on, either online or written down on Sat morning. We are keeping track of parents fulfilling their duty requirements this season.
Bring a Friend Day:
This Sat 16th Nov. Bring your friend inside to get a Come and Try patch & number, so they can get results. Also stickers and WLAC ribbon. At the end of the program, Age Group Leaders to bring the age group to the front of the pavilion for all athletes to get a free zooper dooper.
