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.
Some updated information including a project timeline has been published on the Shire Website for the MLAC community to review. https://shape.mornpen.vic.gov.au/civic-reserve-pavilion-upgrades.
Week 9 Program
Our program for Week 9 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:
Track Set Up: from 07:30 - 08:30 UNDER 10 GIRLS & UNDER 12 GIRLS
BBQ Duties: from 09:00 to 12:00pm UNDER 7 BOYS & UNDER 11 BOYS
Track Pack Up: from 12:00 - 13:00 UNDER 11 GIRLS & UNDER 6 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.
New Families FAQs
We are delighted to welcome our Trial Athletes families to Mornington Little Aths. We have a lot of useful information on our website including a list of FAQs and what to expect on the day. All our parents are encouraged to assist and support our kids as they complete their events. If you have any questions about our Program or Centre, please get in contact with us or any Committee Member (wearing Orange Polo tops) on the track.
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.
