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.
