Moorabbin Little Athletics Centre

 

Welcome to Moorabbin Little Athletics Centre (MLAC).

We welcome new and existing members. We are a not-for-profit club operating for the benefit of local families, providing a high quality athletics program.

The program starts at under 6 (On Track program) and caters for children up to under 16s. Some of our older athletes go on to assist with coaching and starter duties once they have completed the program.

The athletics season runs from October until March, coinciding with the Victorian Little Athletics regional and state athletics activities. MLAC has many athletes who go onto to represent the club at regional, state and national levels.

We encourage parents to bring their kids along and have a try.  Our experienced coaches will spend time with families explaining the various activities and providing quality coaching to participants.

 

Eligibility

 

Children turning five (5) between 1 October and 31 December 2018 and under the age of 16 on 31 December 2018 are eligible to compete. 

From 1 January 2019, a child must have turned five (5) before being able to register.

Refer to the Age Group Calculator here to determine which age group your child will participate in for season 2018/2019.

Parent Duty Roster

Our parent duty roster has been finalised for Season 2018/19:

As outlined in the MLAC Handbook on page 16, Little Athletics cannot run without your support and assistance. All children perform so much better with parental encouragement and support.

Anyone can help in some way, e.g., by holding a tape, raking the sand in a sandpit, putting the high jump bar back in place, retrieving the discus, recording results and many more.

All parents are expected to take turns in helping run our weekly activities. Parents will also be rostered to assist with specific duties on a particular date throughout the season.

Friday night Athletics Competition

Arrival: 5:15pm
Warm up: 5:30pm

Javelin for u12-u16 athletes, from 5pm, however, u13-u16 athletes are encouraged to attend Circuit Round at Brighton.  See below for Brighton Program & excerpt from their e-mail:

Starting from 6pm we'd love as many of your U13+ athletes as possible. We've designed a program that focuses on core events, a discipline for everyone, and a bit of fun thrown in with a combo Vortex/Turbo Javelin concept. We're going to mix this up a bit with not just measurement but hoops/coloured circles and it will be for items from the canteen (e.g. Zooper Doopers).

Highlights of the weekend:

  • 26 athletes
  • 73 events
  • 39 Personal Bests
  • 5 Centre Records
  • 8 Gold medals, 6 Silver medals & 1 Bronze medal, placing the club 9th on the overall Medal Tally

RELAY TRAINING

We will be conducting some training for relays at Sandringham, commencing this week.  1st session will be held from 4.30pm-5.30pm this Wednesday.  Sandringham have also advised that any athletes that are not involved in relays, but would like to do some training/receive some coaching, are welcome to join Sandringham’s weekly training session during this time.  

2nd session will be held from 4pm-6pm this Sunday, as it may be difficult for some to get there on Wednesday and Sandringham have indicated that track is usually vacant on Sunday afternoons.  Final session will be held from 4.30pm-5.30pm the following Wednesday (i.e. 3 days before Regions). 

Any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the club.

We are looking forward to the Regionals Saturday 25th November with SMR Relay Championships at Springvale!

Duty Roster

Our parent duty roster has been finalised for Season 2018/19:

As outlined in the MLAC Handbook on page 16, Little Athletics cannot run without your support and assistance. All children perform so much better with parental encouragement and support.

Anyone can help in some way, e.g., by holding a tape, raking the sand in a sandpit, putting the high jump bar back in place, retrieving the discus, recording results and many more.

All parents are expected to take turns in helping run our weekly activities. Parents will also be rostered to assist with specific duties on a particular date throughout the season.
