A very warm hello and welcome from MLAC to all our new, as well as our returning, families for this exciting 2021/22 season!
Even though the last couple of years have been trying for everyone due to the Pandemic, I'm sure this has made us even more determined and excited to start the season and get back to some community sport. Athletics has always been a fantastic way to meet new friends and learn new skills whilst having fun and getting fit. I am sure you are even more fired up by watching our amazing Aussie team at this years Olympics and ParaOlympics and perhaps we have some budding Olympians in our ranks!
It is now our third season on our beautiful new track and with serious plans in place for an entire new pavilion, it would seem the sky is the limit for MLAC in the coming few years.
Here at MLAC, we encourage plenty of healthy and supportive parent / carer involvement to help us facilitate our competition nights which are held on Fridays. Your children get a real buzz out of you being out there and being involved with them in their activities. The result is a great experience for Parents, Guardians, Carers and children alike.
We also actively encourage all children to attempt all disciplines regardless of their abilities as we strongly promote the ethos of ‘Be Your Best’. Children are running against a clock and jumping and throwing against a tape measure. It's about personal growth, not ‘who’s the fastest’, so to speak.
Our regional events, especially the relays, are a great way to be able to compete within a team. They are fantastic days and I ask all the families to genuinely consider these events.
Please keep your eyes on the MLAC website, Team App and Facebook page for more information in regards to our training sessions, calendar of events, Covid safe policy, and structure for this coming season. Also information is posted weekly on these sites which outlines Friday Comp night schedules and upcoming events etc.. so please press that follow button to keep yourself informed.
Most importantly, please feel free to approach myself or any other Committee person at anytime should you have the slightest question or are unsure of anything.
I look forward to seeing you all and hope you all have a very enjoyable and successful year
President - MLAC
