Welcome to Week 12
Welcome to Week 12 of the 2021-2022 season at Mornington Little Athletics Centre (MLAC).
Welcome to Week 12 of our Summer Little Aths season for this new year. This Saturday 5th Feb event will be the Peninsula Challenge which MLAC will host together with Southern Peninsula LAC and Westernport LAC competing together for the Peninsula Shield. The trophy will go to the Centre with highest number of Personal Best (PB) achieved per financial member. We look forward to welcoming guests and families from Westernport and Southern Peninsula for this fun annual event.
Finally, a big congratulations to the athletes representing MLAC at the State Combined Event Competition last week end. Harry (U10 Boys) finished 5th, Frankie (U9 Girls) finished 15th and Matthew (U14 Boys) finished 19th in their respective age groups which is fantastic achievement for all.
Regional Track and Field Carnivals
The Regional Track and Field event will be held at Duncan Mackinnon Reserve, Murrumbeena on the 12th and 13th February 2022. Please note there will be no MLAC Competition held on Sat 12th Feb as a result. We will have over 40 athletes representing MLAC over the week-end so best of luck to all our MLAC Little Aths.
This week is the last opportunity to ensure you have the correct uniform including Coles patch sewn on to meet Uniform entry requirements. You will not be allowed to compete without the correct uniform. Lastly, all parents attending are expected to fulfil their duties during Events so please look out for the forthcoming timetable of Regional duties. If you need any uniform items or Coles patches, please come and see us this Saturday morning.
We have received supply of new Uniform Stock (Sizes 8 and 10) so if you are yet to purchase a uniform, you can place and order online or collect on Saturday morning. Please note that Coles Patches are compulsory part of the Uniform. If you need a Coles Patch, please see one of the MLAC Officials. The Coles patch must be sewn above the Little Athletics Victoria Logo on the right hand side of the Uniform. Also, black shorts are part of the MLAC uniform so if you need shorts, please visit the MLAC Shop online.
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.
Training is back on for this coming Wed 9th Feb starting at 5:00pm. This will be the final training event before the Regional Carnivals so please ensure you book online for each child that is attending training.
Our program for this week is now available for download on our Website which contains all the scheduled events for each age group. Please note that MLAC can vary the Events and schedule pending the weather conditions for the day.
