Great news! The portal for registration is now open….and we have managed to keep the cost of individual registration at last year’s $170.00; note that there is a discount for subsequent registrations from the same family.
We are hoping for a great season spurred on by the excitement and enthusiasm generated by the Rio Olympics…here’s hoping there’s a Usain Bolt waiting in the wings!
We would love to see you on registration day down at Duncan McKinnon on Saturday September 10th from 10 am – 2 pm. The committee will be there to answer any questions. If you have already registered on line we are hoping to have the registration packs and patches ready for pick up – stay tuned for confirmation, as we need to wait for delivery from LAVIC.
If you are unclear on any aspect of registration you will find further details by clicking here.
You need to log on to the LAVIC website to register. Don’t forget that you will need to nominate for duty.
If you are not sure that Little Athletics is for your child we welcome you to “Come and Try”. Further information can be found on our Come & Try page here.
If you have been registered at another club you will need to contact Little Athletics Victoria to facilitate the transfer.

On Saturday 12TH December 22 relay teams represented Caulfield Little Athletics at the State Relay Championships. In what was a perfect weather day the best relay teams in the state all gathered at the State Track and Field Centre at Lakeside Stadium. The competition was of a very high standard and it was a joy to see so many terrific young athletes.
The Caulfield teams had been training hard leading up to the competition and it paid off as four teams won medals (and one other won gold but was disqualified for a small baton change error). That almost equates to 25% of our teams winning a medal – amazing considering the quality of the opposition we were up against. We also had another three teams make a state final.
All Caulfield athletes represented the club wonderfully well and the committee would like to thank the athletes. The committee would also like to thank the efforts of the parents. Many parents spent the whole day marshalling children and conducting their duty roles. All found it very exciting as our teams raced down the straights. It was a long day as competition ran for 10-11 hours. In saying that no one complained and all seemed to have an enjoyable time.

But unfortunately disqualified for relay box infringement – It was a shame as girls ran an amazing race. Full credit for their honesty and sportsmanship. They are to be commended.
Special Mention to the following people:
Thank you to our President Russell Harper for his set up/pack up help but also as he spent 11 hours being a track official – amazing! Also to Alan Morris who assisted me on the Caulfield table for 11 hours.
A big thank you also to the Age Group Managers who were fabulous looking after the kids. And again to all parents – Thank you!
It was a delight seeing the kids run and experience the emotions of the day. Next year we as a committee will be generating some new ideas to improve Caulfield’s relay running and representation – will keep you posted. Thanks for a great relay season.

On behalf of CLAC, we’d like to thank Murrumbeena Community Bendigo Bank for their Community Investment Program. CLAC now have two families who have taken up the opportunity to meet with Sue Foley, Branch Manager at Murrumbeena, to learn more about the Program. Things must have gone very well as we are pleased to say that CLAC parents Christian & Samantha and Russell & Mary transferred their home loan to Bendigo Bank. As part of the Community Investment Program Murrumbeena Community Bank donated $5,000 to CLAC and presented the cheque at the Presentation Awards. This donation contributed greatly to the purchase of the new wireless timing gate equipment for our little athletes.
We encourage all CLAC members to contact Sue Foley at Murrumbeena Community Bendigo Bank on 9568 8166 to learn more about the Community Investment Program and see how they can support your banking needs. Just tell them you are from Caulfield Little Athletics and no doubt you will be well looked after and the benefits will go to the club.
