Welcome to Week 16
Welcome to Week 16 of the 2021-2022 season at Mornington Little Athletics Centre (MLAC).
Welcome to Week 16 of our Summer Little Aths season for this new year. Please note, due to the numbers of Mornington Athletes and officials attending the State Championship Event on 12-13th March, there will be no MLAC Saturday event held on this date. Please note there is no Coffee Van in attendance for this Sat 5th March.
The final competition session will be held on Saturday 19th March. Finally, good luck to all MLAC Athletes who registered and are competing at the Seaford Open day this Sunday 6th March. #GoMLAC!
Wet Weather Policy
At Mornington Civic Reserve, we are lucky to have an 'all weather' track which means that rainy/wet conditions do not necessarily stop a competition day from going ahead. However, the safety and well-being of our children, parents, families, volunteers and officials is always our first priority, particularly considering the impact of weather on scheduled events.
The MLAC Committee will assess track and equipment conditions in the event of adverse weather conditions and we may modify and/or cancel the event. If the competition event is cancelled, we will post on our Facebook page and send email to our members and trial athlete families.
State Track & Field Championships
A huge congratulations to all the Mornington Little Aths who have qualified for the State Track & Field Championships in the next month. We are super proud of all of your results and achievements and look forward to cheering you on during this event. #GoMLAC!

Royal Children's Hospital - Good Friday Appeal
A big thank you to all the MLAC Families for their generous donations collected at our BBQ last Saturday. Every year, Little Aths Centres across Victoria help to raise funds for the Good Friday Appeal.
We will continue the Gold Coin Donations at the MLAC BBQ and also donating a portion of our BBQ takings this week. We are very grateful for all donations from our MLAC Families for this event.
MLAC Easter Handicap and Championship Day
The Final event for the Season will be the 'Easter' Handicap and Championship presentations to be held on Saturday 26th March. The Handicap event will be split into Juniors (U6 to U8 age groups) and Seniors (U9 to U16 age groups) with starting point and distances calculated based on times during the year. We will also have some 'treasure hunts' and other fun activities for the day. We will also present MLAC awards, prizes and trophies for each Age Group as well as participation medals and certificates to all MLAC attendees.
Mentone Relay Day - Sun 27th March
The popular Mentone Relay Day event is back on this year. Entries close on 19th March and it would be great to see lots of Mornington Relay Teams register for this Event. The MLAC Committee will assist with forming teams so please register your interest as soon as possible.

The Final training session is scheduled for Wed 9th March starting at 5:00pm. Please ensure you book online for each child that is attending training. We would like to extend our gratitude to our MLAC Academy Coaches for their support and advice this season. We will also be seeking feedback from members on the Training program so we can improve the program for the next season.
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.
