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.

Training: Wednesday: 5:00pm to 6:00pm.

Competition: Friday: 5:45pm to approx. 7:30pm.

FRIDAY 25 NOVEMBER 2016 - MULTI-EVENT ROUND

The program this week reflects the Little Athletics Victoria (LAVic) endorsed Multi-Event Round. 

The multi-event is the Little Athletics equivalent of the Decathlon and/or Heptathlon. The concept of the multi-event is to determine combined performance across a range of disciplines including running, jumping and throwing. Points are awarded for the performance in each individual discipline and are then combined at the conclusion to determine a total point score.

During the week of 28 November 2016 to 2 December 2016, LAVic will send all athletes an e-certificate acknowledging their participation and information for entry to the State Multi-Event Championships, for U9 – U15 athletes.

See you all Friday night!!
