ABOUT WAVERLEY LITTLE ATHLETICS CENTRE

Little Athletics is a Centre based Track & Field competition for children aged between 5 and 16.  For more details check out What is Little Athletics? or download flyer.

Summer Season runs from Oct to March. Winter Season (Cross Country) runs from April to August.

Waverley Little Athletics Centre is based at Central Reserve Athletics Track in Glen Waverley, is affiliated with Little Athletics Victoria and is part of the Southern Metropolitan Region (SMR). Not near Glen Waverley? Find your nearest Centre.

Little Athletics is a volunteer run, community based, non profit organisation providing athletic opportunities for our children. Our motto is Family, Fun, Fitness.  We aim to strike a balance between development, competition and having fun. Little Athletics is one of the few sports where parents can become fully involved in their child's sporting interests. Our centre has an enthusiastic committee responsible for organising the centre, and we need parents to help out on Saturday mornings at the events.

On Sat mornings, the children go around in their age groups and compete in 4 - 6 different athletic events each week, with an emphasis on personal bests and learning athletic skills and improving techniques. Extra coaching available mid-week.

It is compulsory for athletes to run in their age group. They must wear their registration patch and Waverley top. Each race starts after the finish of the previous race, so athletes need to be ready at the start line and listen to announcements.

 

All athletes are already registered for cross country (your summer season fees cover the winter season), so there is NO need to go to the Knox registration tent (regardless of what they say over the PA). If you have forgotten your patch, please get a temporary one from the Waverley flag.

 

Each week, it is compulsory for one of our parents to volunteer to assist Knox LAC with the running of these events. Please take your turn by signing up online at:   Parent Duty - Register here

Also, in would be much appreciated if the families of the age groups involved in the last race, could please help Knox LAC pack up.
