2021/22 Season... ready, set, go?!

The 2021/22 Little Athletics season at Waverley is expected to begin in November 2021. However, due to the current Government restrictions and Lockdown 6.0, an official start date has not yet been confirmed. 

Once we receive updates from Little Athletics Victoria, we will advise our members accordingly. 

Please refer to the official WLAC online Covid Statement for more information.

The registration fee for this season has been set back at our normal cost for the 12 month membership. 
Last season, we provided a significantly discounted flat rate, to financially assist our families and encourage members to join our Centre. 
For more information, please visit our Fees and Payments page. 

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.

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 at Central Reserve very soon.

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

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.
