Welcome to Week 11
Welcome to Week 11 of the 2021-2022 season at Mornington Little Athletics Centre (MLAC).
Welcome to Week 11 of our Summer Little Aths season for this new year. Last Sunday, we held our annual MLAC Combined Event Open day which was a huge success. We had over 100 Little Aths attend from Centres as far away as Shepparton, Sale and Geelong which was fantastic to see. A big thank you to all the parents that stepped up to help with duties on the day and who made our guests feel welcome.
Our next big event will be the Peninsula Challenge which MLAC will host on Saturday 5th Feb together with Southern Peninsula LAC and Westernport LAC competing together for the Peninsula Shield.
Lastly, we wish the very best of luck for the MLAC Athletes participating in the State Combined Events Championships this week-end - Sat 29 and Sun 30th Jan. #GoMLAC

A friendly reminder that any uniform with a Jetstar patch or logo is not permitted by LAVic. Little Athletics has been sponsored by Coles for 5 years and you must ensure your MLAC top, singlet has the Coles logo attached. If you need to collect a Coles patch, please come and collect one from the office on Saturday morning.
