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.

02/09/2019 - Vale Jack Rigby - Life Member
It’s with great sadness to inform you that the Centres first Life Member, Jack Rigby, passed away on the 24th August 2019, 91 years of age.
Jack Rigby and his family started Little Athletics at Waverley from the very beginning and were part of the St. Leonard’s Little Athletics Club. Little is known of Jack’s involvement at Club level, but he was on the Centre Committee from 1977/82 and was awarded co-first Life Membership along with Tony McMahon in 1982/83. Jack was also a regular Key Official at SMR and LAVic Championships in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Jacks children held several records at Waverley and I believe some of those historical records still stand.
John (Jack) Irvin Rigby was born on 18th October 1927 and passed away suddenly on 24th August 2019. He was married to Frances for 66 years, father of 6, grandfather of 14, great grandfather of 4 and great great grandfather of 1.
Jacks funeral was held on 30th August 2019 at St. Leonard’s, Glen Waverley. He is the second WLAC Life Member that has passed away since Frank Mardell in 1992.
