There will be no athletics at Coburg on the Labour Day weekend. Little Athletics Victoria has brought forward their State Track & Field championships to the weekend of 10/11th March due to the Grand Prix. Therefore, we will have competition on the 18th March as a fun day to finish off the season and to farewell any of our under 15 athletes who decide not to return to Little Athletics next season in under 16s.

Come & Try days - September 24th was our last 'Come & Try' day before the season starts on Saturday 8th October. New athletes can still attend in October and join in for 2 weeks, however you will not get points for participating. Please remember that the normal start time for competition is 8:30am. It is best to arrive early so you don't miss any events.
If you do want to register and join a club for the upcoming season, please go online before the end of September and process your payment. This will ensure we have enough time to prepare for competition starting on the 8th Oct. The link can be found above.
Fees - $145 per child for first 3 children, 4th and subsequent child(ren) free; plus club fee and club t-shirt. Note - athletes must wear plain black shorts with no pockets or logos/stripes. Some sizes/styles available from the Centre at a cost of $10 per pair.
Clubs - new families, please note - Coburg LAC is made up of 6 clubs which compete together each Saturday morning. If you do not know which club to join, that is OK. You may wish to chose your favourite colour or speak to a Coburg committee member to assist you.
Important - Athletics is fun. If you cannot attend every week, that is OK. If you cannot attend for the whole morning, that is OK too. However, please remember, you cannot drop your child(ren) off and disappear to do your morning shopping! Little Aths is not a baby sitting service. We need all parents to assist in the running of this activity. The duties are not difficult and it is absolutely fabulous to watch the children up close. If you have any concerns or questions, please ask your club committee members or a member of the Coburg Centre committee.
Coburg LAC is in the Moreland City Council zone however, we have many athletes/members who live outside this zone. This is fine...we encourage families to get involved in Little Athletics...it is a fabulous sport - the foundation of all sports - and lots of fun, although can be quite hectic in the first few weeks with so many new families involved.
Below are some links for parents or potential coaches. Little Athletics also hold some skills clinics for different age groups;

Coburg Little Athletics Centre caters for young athletes from U6 through to U16. Track and Field competition is held on Saturday mornings from October through to late March, with Cross Country competition running from May to early August.
Our centre provides a fun and safe environment for children offering a variety of different events that allow for development of a broad range of skills, from the power and technique of throwing events, the speed and co-ordination of hurdling and sprinting, through to the endurance and perseverance of distance running.
Our centre welcomes children of all ability levels, with the emphasis on achieving your personal best.
