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

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.

14/11/2019 - Week 7 - 2019/20

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.

Parent Roster:

Mentone Relays:

40 Waverley athletes, 22 teams (from U8 to U14) competed at the Mentone Relay Day last Sunday 10th Nov.  18 x top 8 finishes, with green baton

That's all for this week, see the Under 9's for early set-up from 7:30am
and the rest of you from 8:30am for a 9:00am SHARP start time. It's a
small program to run this week so let's have lots of parent helpers to

See you all Saturday morning.
