New Members

WLAC offers a 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.

Once the athlete has completed their Come and Try session, you will receive an email from the Registrar with details on how you can register & make payment.

Note: Once your Come and Try session expires, you aren't allowed to compete unless you register & make payment!

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.

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.

For any queries about the winter (Cross Country) season, please contact the Coordinator at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

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


Registrations for the 2019/20 Season open on 20th August 2019. Once registered, the membership will last until the following August.

The Little Athletics season begins on Saturday, 5th October 2019. 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 in September 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 Involvement (How can I help?)

The Centre is entirely run by volunteers and we need a lot of help to keep things running smoothly.  Please check out Parent Involvement and What is Little Athletics? for further information on how you can help.


Age Groups

Athletes age is taken as of 31st December 2019.

To determine the age group that athletes will belong to during the 2019/20 season, please use the Age Group Ready Reckoner below.

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.
