The committee would like to announce that the move to Mornington Secondary College has begun! The first of our shipping containers was delivered to the school today, and the 2 remaining containers will be moved after Christmas. It is sad to leave Mace Oval after nearly 13 seasons, but we truly have outgrown the space.
Our first competition day in the New Year is on January 7th at Ballam Park, Frankston. Our first day of competition at our new temporary home at MSC will be January 14th. We will run a shortened program on this day to ensure we iron out any of the kinks we may experience in the new location. We ask everyone to be patient, and assist where you can to help make the transition to a 400m track as smooth as possible.
We will continue to foster our welcoming atmosphere and ask parents to still follow their children to each event. The culture within our club is well known and respected within the Little Aths community, and we don't w...

The club had a wonderful day at the State Relay Championships today. Photos have been posted on Facebook, if you have more, please email them to us. We had 37 athletes competing in 17 teams (including 1 athlete in a SMR team), and won 8 medals. An incredible result!
Results as follows:
- Gold to the U15 boys in both the 4x100m and Medley - Silver to the U10 boys in the 4x200m; to the U9-11 mixed age medley team; and to the U10 girls A team in both the 4x200m and Medley
- Bronze to the U10 boys in the 4x100m; and to the U15 boys in the 4x200m
The U10 girls narrowly missed out on a third medal coming fourth in the 4x100m, and the U9 boys placed fifth in the 4x200m. The U10 girls also boasted our only B team to make it through in the 4x200m race.
Well done to all our athletes and parents. We hope the kids enjoyed themselves because that's what it's all about. Thanks again to Paul Davies (Team Manager), Trevor Quint (Starter), Lucy Duncan (2 days helping in the Merchandise room - well done!) a...
