Welcome to the Webpage of Camperdown Little Athletics Centre #44
Our Motto is Family Fun and Fitness.
Children are eligible to be registered for Little Athletics after they turn 5.
We have age groups from under 6 up to and including under 17.
Philosophy: Our focus is on encouraging children to improve their own times and distances in events during the season.
Facilities: We use a 400m circular grass running track with a synthetic surface on our long and triple jump run ups.
Location: Corner of Frederick and Fuller Sts, Camperdown, behind the basketball stadium.
Times: Our Sessions run from 4.30 on Friday nights during competition season. Please be there at least 15 minutes early for announcements and sign in
Our season runs from October to early March, with a break for school holidays.
Events offered: These vary with age group but include sprints, middle distance running, hurdles, long jump, triple jump, high jump, discus, shot put and javelin.
Event program: Athletes compete in up to five events each Friday competition night, usually composed of 3 running races, a throwing event and a jumping event. Children in the u6 to u8 age group also have some "on track" skills sessions as part of their program.
In order to comply with ongoing Covid protocols and weather conditions, adjustments to the printed program may need to be made during the season.
Coaching: Much of our coaching is done during our competition nights by experienced parents, many of whom have completed LAVic's introduction to coaching courses. We also offer training on Monday nights for interested athletes, with season dates and coaching staff TBC.
Children experience a range of events each week, and those aged in the under 9 group or older have the opportunity to compete at region and state Level (subject to qualification at region events). Our club also has the ability to connect you with coaching and other competition opportunities outside of our club, where applicable.
Uniforms: Participants wear a red t-shirt (any red t-shirt is fine) and black shorts for our Friday night competitions. If an athlete competes at regional or state level, the club provides them with a club competition top to wear for the duration of that event. Commonwealth bank patches need to be worn every Friday night, it is a requirement that Coles Sew on Patches need to be attached to the t-shirt.
Like most sports, Camperdown Little Athletics will need to adhere to Victorian Government COVID protocols. These protocols include regular cleaning of equipment, social distancing etc.
A full list of the protocols as at season start can be found at the appropriate tab above.
It is vital that all families, whether new or returning, have a look at these protocols before registering and ensure that you and your family can comply.
All parents play a huge role in ensuring that that we can start and continue our season by abiding by State Government and Little Athletics Victoria rules and regulations.
We have several COVID officials who will be required to monitor our competition nights, please make their voluntary job easier by doing the right thing, after all we are all here for our children to have the best experience possible.
This year more than any other we need parent and volunteer help.We require all parents to help on the night and all Parent/Carer's MUST remain in attendance throughout the whole session.(Failure to do so will result in child being unable to participate) If you are unsure how you can help or have questions relating to this, please contact any of our committee.
Bib and registration pack night.
In order to avoid congestion on competition night we will be at the oval a few weeks prior to our season start date to hand out bibs and registration material. We would encourage members to register prior to these date to streamline distribution of bibs and books. Times for this will be confirmed once dates for the coming season are confirmed.
Full and Trialing memberships will be available via a registration link as soon as our registration portal opens, we anticipate that his will be mid to late September. Trialing membership offers two weeks of competition with full program access,without commiting to our membership fees. (please note that trailing members results are not added to end of year awards points or presentations as per LAVic rules) Once membership becomes fully financial, all results are available weekly via our results portal. For more information on Trialing memberships prior to portal opening, please feel free to contact us via the contact options below.
