The 2023/24 Summer Season is due to begin on Sat 7th October 2023 !!



WLAC offers up to two free Trials 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.

Trial 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 by email or ring/text  0431 471 205  if you require any more details or have any questions about doing the Trials. 

Come about 8.30 am to the registration desk and we will show you where to go, collect a Trial patch and ask any more questions. More info about what happens on a Saturday morning, click here for a handout.

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


Upon deciding to fully register, you will need to use the Registration portal - New member 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.

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.



Registrations for the 2023/24 Season are open. Once registered, the membership will last until the 31st August 2024.

The Little Athletics season is due to begin on Saturday 7th October 2023. 

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 (Sat 16th September from 9.30 am) 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. No paper forms can be accepted. Registering online during one of the competition days may result in missing out on some events.



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, Committee Information and What is Little Athletics? for further information on how you can help.



Age Groups for the 2022/23 season are based on how old the athlete is as of 31st December 2022.

To determine the age group that athletes will belong to during the 2022/23 season, please use the Age Group Calculator (Ready Reckoner).
Important: Athletes born in 2019 must have turned 5 before being able to register. 

Each athlete competes in their age group, except that U13 and above may compete together in a group and are known as the Southern Stars.



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.
