Welcome to 2020/21

 

Welcome To Warrnambool Little Athletics

 

Family, Fun and Fitness

 

 

Little Athletics is a great way to introduce your child to sport in general. Athletics activity develops co-ordination, flexibility, speed, endurance and strength through walking, running, throwing and jumping. Winning is not everything at Little Athletics. The main emphasis is on participation, fun, fitness and striving to improve your own performance.  Children's results will be available online so that they can follow their progress and performances over the season.

 

Every single person involved with Warrnambool Little Athletics is a volunteer. We cannot operate without the assistance of parents each week. There are a range of roles everyone can assist with such as recording results, raking sand pits, measuring, helping in the canteen.  Please let us know if you have a special interest or expertise in a particular area so we can take this into consideration on our roster.

 

Relying on volunteers allows us to keep fees to a minimum. Registration this year is only $110 per child for the season, there are no weekly fees. Of this, $82 goes to Little Athletics Victoria for insurance and administration expenses and the balance covers facilities hire and equipment. Even better, if you are a returning athlete, or sibling, you will get $12.30 of this reimbursed from Little Athletics Victoria. 

 

Our club meets weekly on Friday nights from 5pm. Our season starts on November 20th and runs until the February 26th with a six week break over Christmas. Dates for the season and details of our programme can be found on our website Warrnambool Little Aths home page

Registration must be done on-line. “Athletes not registered and paid will not be able to compete on Friday nights.”

“Your registration will need to be completed two days prior to your first night of competition to have your results recorded and count towards your club points”

Please visit the Little Athletics Victoria website (http://lavic.com.au/) to complete the process. Your registration will need to be completed two days prior to your first night of competition to have your results recorded and count towards your club points. As our club communicates with our members via email please ensure you select ‘Yes’ to the mailing list when you register, and that you have given us a current email address that you check regularly.

 

The LA Vic website also provides details of various Little Athletics Victoria competitions we encourage Under 9s and above to compete in during the season. These include; regional relays, regional track and field championships, state multi-event and cross country competitions. 

 

We hope you will see the potential and opportunities that our club will provide for your child and the enjoyment of participation for your family that this sport can offer. If you want any further information about the operations of our Club please contact me on 0417 786 481.
