Welcome to Week 14
Welcome to Week 14 of the 2021-2022 season at Mornington Little Athletics Centre (MLAC).
SMR Regional Results
Over the weekend we had a total of 35 athletes compete who achieved 72 PB's, 10 Club Records and 38 Medals (12 Gold, 14 Silver and 12 Bronze). What an awesome result, well done to everyone that competed over the weekend.
A big thank you to those that made the weekend possible for our children. Thank you to the parents that completed club duties, without your assistance our children cannot compete. A particular thanks to those that stepped in cover duties at a moment's notice and to the parents that were attending an out of centre event for the first time, making sure your children were there on time, had the correct uniform on and worked out where there kids needed to be.
A massive congratulations to all the Mornington Little Aths that participated. We are super proud of all of your results and achievements. We look forward to supporting and cheering the MLAC Athletes who are progressing to the State Track & Field Championships in March 2022.
Coles Community Round - 19th Feb
This Sat 19th Feb is the annual Coles Community Round proudly sponsored by Victorian Little Athletics Major Sponsor Coles. We are encouraging our Little Aths and Families to dress up with a 'splash of red' to celebrate this Round. If you have your Coles caps from last year, please bring these along too. We have some prizes to hand out during the day and the popular Coles 'Selfie Frame' will be floating around to capture those fun pics. Last but not least, we are hopeful to have the Coles Bananas back this week for our Little Aths to enjoy.
Royal Children's Hospital - Good Friday Appeal - Sat 27th Feb
Next week, MLAC will help with raising funds for the Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal. Every year, Little Aths Centres across Victoria help to raise funds for the Good Friday Appeal.

Cross Country Season
Each year, MLAC conduct a Cross Country Season starting end of April until end of August. If you have registered for the Summer Season, your membership also includes the Winter Cross Country season for free. We run every second Saturday in different locations across Mornington Peninsula. Our members can run 1km, 1.5km, 2 or 3km distances. We will provide further details in April before the Cross Country season commences and we would love to see lots of MLAC Little Aths participate during the winter season.
Each week event results are added to the Results HQ website where you can view your child’s results if you are a paid member. For our trial athletes, once you complete the registration process and pay the fees, your child’s results will also be available.
For those who haven't accessed their results before, you will need to do so through the Results HQ platform. To login use your primary email address that you used during registration, will become our username for Results HQ
Please note that results are not always live and it may take a little while for them to be put into the system. There is also a PDF Achievement Book with all of the athletes' season results available to print and download.
