The 2021/22 Summer Season is due to begin in October! 

FREE COME & TRY

WLAC offers up to two free Come and Try session to NEW athletes only. This gives the athlete an opportunity to try Little Athletics before they become a Registered Member!

Athletes must be 5 years of age or older but can register and start as soon as they turn 5.

Come and Try athletes will be required to fill in a form with their basic details (for insurance purposes) prior to participating.

Proof of Age documents (POA) must also be supplied before participating.

Please contact us if you require any more details or have any questions about doing the Come and Tries.

Note: Once you have done your maximum two Come and Try sessions, you aren't allowed to compete unless you register & make payment!

Upon deciding to fully register, you will need to use the Registration portal to register and pay.

The registration is only fully complete once you have provided the 'proof of age' to the Registrar.

Registrations cover both the summer (Track & Field) season, which goes to the end of March, and also the cross country season (April till August).

For queries about the summer (Track and Field) season, please contact the Registrar.

REGISTRATION

Registrations for the 2021/22 Season are now open. Once registered, the membership will last until the 31st August 2022.

The Little Athletics season is due to begin on Saturday 2nd October 2021. However, this will be delayed due to the current Government restrictions. We will confirm a start date once the information becomes available.

The season is broken up into 2 parts:

  1. Summer Track & Field - Competitions are held on Saturday mornings at Central Reserve, between October and March.
  2. Winter Cross Country - Competitions are held between April and August, run at various parks in the local area.

Athletes can register at any time during the season provided they are between the ages of 5 and 15.  Athletes must be 5 years of age or older to join but can join as soon as they turn 5.

PLEASE NOTE:  Parents or guardians are required to stay for the duration of the weekly programs as they remain primarily responsible for the behaviour and welfare of their children.

New members: Read through the information on this page, including the Information Packs listed below, where you will be given further information.

Alternatively, you can also attend our Registration Information Day (date TBC) or contact any Committee Member to discuss further directions to enter membership details as required above.

Please refer to Registration - Fees and Payment for details on pricing and how to pay.

All paid registrations are required to be completed online via the Waverley LAC Registration portal. No paper forms can be accepted. Registering online during one of the competition days may result in missing out on some events.

 

PARENT INVOLVMENT (HOW CAN I HELP)

The Centre is entirely run by volunteers and we need a lot of help to keep things running smoothly.  All parents/guardians are required to do a number of duties during the season.

Please check out Parent Involvement and What is Little Athletics? for further information on how you can help.

 

AGE GROUPS

Age Groups for the 2021/22 season are based on how old the athlete is as of 31st December 2021.

To determine the age group that athletes will belong to during the 2021/22 season, please use the Age Group Calculator (Ready Reckoner).
Important: Athletes born in 2017 must have turned 5 before being able to register. 

Each athlete competes in their age group, except that Under 13 and above compete together in a group and are known as the Southern Stars.

 

PROOF OF AGE

LAVic requires that ALL MEMBERS provide Proof of Age to the Registrar. This may be in the form of a passport, birth certificate or child health record.

Proof of age must be shown prior to athletes competing, or forfeit all results up until such time as it is presented.
