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.

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.

2019 STATE TRACK & FIELD REPORT
(by MLAC68 Competition Manager - Chris Sharp).

Congratulations to the 11 athletes that competed in a total of 20 events at the State Track & Field Championships over the weekend, representing Moorabbin LAC with distinction.

While the number of athletes that progressed to this level were down on previous years, the results once again managed to exceed my expectations.

Highlights of the weekend:

11 out of the 20 results were PBs
4 Centre Records
Top 10 finalists (i.e. Top 8 )
3 Gold, 1 Silver, 1 Bronze
Equal 29th on Medal Tally (out of 100 LAVic Centres)

Regardless of their final placing and/or whether they achieved a Personal Best, to actually have made it to the State T&F Championships is an amazing achievement.

Each & every athlete, listed below, should be very proud of themselves, even if they didn’t perform as well as they wanted to on the day (I know I couldn’t be prouder, and I’m sure that your parents & friends would echo my sentiments). As I heard one of the officials say to athletes after one of the events “There are approx. 20,000 registered Little Athletes in Victoria, so to even reach the Top 24 is an unbelievable performance”.

Thank you to those parents that assisted with the running of the event, by covering the Club’s assigned duties, and/or to parents/friends/family members that came along to support our athletes. I’m sure the kids appreciated your support.

Special thanks to Gordon Fode for setting up very early on Saturday & remaining for the whole day as Assistant Team Manager.

Results for all athletes were as follows (Note: Gold medallists in blue, Silver medallist in red & Bronze medallist in green):

UNDER 10 GIRLS

Renee Ford

High Jump 1.19m 1st PB 
800m 2:44.14 4th PB
400m 1:14.14 11th

While kids are practicing, parents are welcome to assist our band of regulars with pack-up (many hands make light work). Note: this will not count as one of your 'duties' for the season, so you would be doing out of the kindness of your heart.

MENTONE RELAY DAY 2017 - SUMMARY AND PHOTOS

Congratulations to all athletes who participated at the Mentone Relay Day Sunday 12th November.  The sun shone and the atmosphere was exciting.  Click here to see some photos. Some very pleasing results, with several teams going home with ‘commemorative batons’ for finishing in the top 3 placegetters. 

Special thanks to Gordon Fode, who was first there at around 6.30am and close to last to leave around 6pm.   

 

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!

U6's to U12's - SANDRINGHAM

See below the program for Friday night's competition to be held at Sandringham Athletics Club, Glamis Avenue, Hampton.

Warm up for athletes commences at 5:25-5:30pm with competition to start at 5:45pm sharp.  See you all then.

We have included some events for U13 - U15 on the program at Sandy, just in case there are some kids that have brothers/sisters in younger age groups and can’t get to Mentone at 7:00pm.

 

U13's - U16's - MENTONE

A reminder that u13-u15 athletes are expected to compete at Mentone from 7:00pm, rather than Sandy.  

This Friday night Mentone Little Athletics Centre will be hosting "The Circuit".

The Circuit is a dedicated program over 3 rounds for our U13+ athletes. The Ciruit consists of:

  • U13+ athletes from Brighton, Sandringham, Caulfield, Moorabbin and Mentone compete together over 3 dedicated rounds
  • The Circuit is a pilot to promote a more competitive, fun and social program amongst older athletes - and give you more reasons to stay involved in athletics
  • 4 events, with a fun twist including "Nitro" style mixed and relay events
  • The 1st week is at Mentone on Friday the 10th Nov, kicking off at 7pm
  • Brighton hosts round 2 on the 9th December. 3rd round is at Sandy on the 9th Feb.
  • Each "Circuit" day goes to an athlete's qualification for Regional events

We hope you look forward to this, being able to compete against your peers at our neighbouring clubs in a fun, social - and still competitive - environment!

Operational Requirements

  • We will need help on the night from all clubs!! Please have at least the following attending - a Team Manager / designated contact. Multiple parents good too!
  • 7pm start - please be on time given the event will go long beyond the traditional Mentone twilight finish time
  • We'll do a briefing at the start to launch the concept
  • For relays we will need a lot of coordination - in making it fun, we've also added a bit of complexity just in terms of the 'herding cats' order.

Please wear your club uniform and name bibs.

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.
