Season 2019-20 is ready to go.

Registrations for the 2019-20 season will go live from mid August!

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:

  • Little Athletics is for kids aged 5-15.  Events include track (sprints and middle distance running), field (discus, shotput) and jumps (long and high).
  • We generally run competition on a Sauturday morning which goes for about 2 hours. Before long weekends and regional and state events we usually swap to Friday evening (this happens about 3-4 times in a season)
  • Competition starts at 9am on a Saturday, but look forward to having parents arrive a little bit earier to help setup.
  • Our season runs through until March (about 22 weeks of competition).  We take a break from just before Christmas until mid January
  • At Oakleigh we pride ourselves on being a familiy oriented and wecloming centre.  We place a strong emphasis on athletes challenging themselves to do better.  The Personal Best rewards scheme is a big hit with the kids!
  • For registered and financial athletes we offer training for athletes on a Tuesday afternoon (ages 8 and above) and Thursday afternoon (ages 6- 8).  This is included in our annual fee
  • You can try athletics before making payment, however we ask that you register your child beforehand.

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.

The campaign to upgrade our track update..

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:

  • Christian Silva 1st
  • Cassandra Servadei- 2nd
  • Tessia Haggai- 3rd
  • Cathrine Gaulterleri- 4th

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.
