Welcome to Week 7
Welcome to Week 7 of the 2021-2022 season at Mornington Little Athletics Centre (MLAC).
Welcome to Week 7 of our Summer Little Aths season for this year. This is our final event for this year and we are holding the MLAC Combined Event this Saturday which is always great fun. In this event, all registered and paid athletes will gain points for each event completed. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each Age Group and these will be presented in mid Jan 2022 when we return. We hope to see all our MLAC Families in this final week as we are expecting a 'special' visitor on the day.
On behalf of the Mornington Little Athletics Committee, we would like to wish all our MLAC Families, kids and friends a wonderful holiday break and to enjoy time with family and loved ones. We hope to see you all back in the New Year when we kick off on Saturday 8th Jan for our Twilight session event.

Pavilion Construction Commencing Soon
We are excited to announce that construction of a brand new Pavilion will commence at Civic Reserve in the next few weeks. As a result, there will be disruption to venue access as the construction site will be fenced off. The existing containers have now been moved to another location. Please take care during construction and stay well clear of the construction site once it has been fenced off.
We will provide an update soon to all families once we have more information from the Mornington Shire council. https://www.mornpen.vic.gov.au/About-Us/Major-Projects/Mornington-Civic-Reserve

Our program for Week 7 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.
Parent & Volunteer Duties
Thank you to all the parents who have already used our new Duty Booking app on the website. All parents are expected to fulfil their weekly duty allocation. Our club cannot function each week without the assistance of our parents and volunteers.
Duties for this week are as follows:
From 7:30am Track Set-up - Under 12 Girls & Under 9 Girls
8:00am - 12pm BBQ Duties - Under 7 Girls & Open Girls
11:30am - 12pm Track Pack-up - Under 6 Boys and Under 8 Girls
Please book your duties online to help MLAC run each session effectively. We are very grateful to our MLAC Committee who gets this work done each week but we certainly need all parents to assist.
MLAC offers a range of uniforms and merchandise for sale at each session including Club t-shirts, singlets, crop-tops, MLAC hoodies and LA Vic branded shorts. We also offer ceramic running spikes and shoe bags. If you need to purchase any uniform item, you can do so using our online shop and click & collect on Saturday morning.
We had lots of new uniforms sold in the past 5 weeks and our stock is running low. To beat the rush on Saturday morning, please order online and then you can click & collect on Saturday. We have ordered new stock which should hopefully arrive in early Jan 2022.
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 almost 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.
