John Treanor was a Past Committee Member of the Waverley Little Athletics Centre Inc. He came from the Glen Heights Club and was involved at Waverley in the 1970’s. He was the Championship & Special Meeting Coordinator from 1973/75, Registrar and Walks Coordinator 1975/77. John moved over to Caulfield LAC in 1977.
John joined the Caulfield LAC Committee and was Secretary from 1978/83. He remained on the Committee for 15 years which included 1 year as President. For his services to Caulfield LAC, he was awarded with Life Membership. John was recognised for his contribution to the Association and awarded VLAA Life Governor in 1984.
Some of John’s involvement included: SMR Competition Director, SMR Secretary, Key Official and more in the 1980’s & 90’s, SMR Walk Coordinator until the late 2000’s, State Key Official from the 1980’s until his retirement and guest walk judge at the Waverley Open Days.
Little Athletics Victoria mourns the passing of John Treanor - Life Governor (1984). John has been a part of our Little Athletics family since his daughters, Lisa and Meegan, first registered for Little Athletics. He would yell from the sidelines, encouraging them in every event. This led John to soon join in and officiate, and become totally involved in many aspects within our sport. John's outstanding contribution to Little Athletics throughout the State, from local Centre competition (Caulfield) to Region and State events, will certainly be missed. On behalf of the Board of Management, Members and Staff, our sincere condolences to John's family.
