Registrations for the 2019-20 season are now live. The portal for registering through Little Athletics Victoria (LAVic) is open for both previous members and new members. Click on this link to go to the portal.
We will be starting with a special Orientation and Registration day on the 21st September which will focus on developing parent skills on officiating (e.g. measuring and recording results) with our first week of regular competition scheduled for 5th October.

For Those interested in Learning more about Little Athletics
For those who are new to the sport and are curious to know what it all entails the basics are:
Early in 2019 Council received our petition to upgrade the track and a concept plan has been prepared with assistance of Little Atheletics Victoria and adopted for consideration in the 2019- 2020 works program.
Under the agreed concept plan the track will be reverted to a grass running surface with synthetic areas for jump runups. This is in line with the community use of the reserve for a range of passive recreation activities. Other inclusions in the concept plan are provision for junior soccer (in winter months) in the track centre and upgraded lighting.
The committee will be working closely with Council to implement these changes with minimal impact on future summer athletics seasons.
Well done Cross Country'ers
This year we were very pleased to have had 16 of our athletes competing in each week as part of BaysideXC competition.
A big congratulations to all the athletes who achieved notable performances at the Bayside Championships:
In addition, we had 7 runners who competed in the Cross Country State finals. While there was no silverware collected they should all be proud of their efforts.
The 2019-20 Oakleigh Little Athletics Handbook will be available soon for viewing and download here.
The commitee are working hard to finalise the Schedule for this coming season, and it will be online in a few weeks..
