- Relay training is in full swing on Monday and Wednesday evenings with more than 80 athletes expected to represent the Centre at Diamond Valley on November 23rd.
- The OnTrack program has begun for our young athletes on Monday evenings from 5:00-5:45pm with our great coach Paul Bray, get down and learn some new skills!
Looks like it might be a bit wet this weekend so please keep an eye out on TeamApp and the Social media platforms on Saturday morning to see if competition will go ahead.
Week 1 in the books
For the first morning of the season we were greeted with perfect conditions and a brilliant turnout.
As we enter season 2019/20 things are looking terrific, with so many returning athletes, plenty of new ones and a heap giving it a go for the first time. There was so much fun to be had by all and the parent involvement was first class, we are all very lucky!
Results are currently in the process of being uploaded to ResultsHQ so get on and take a look. This does take some time, particularly when it comes to the field events so please be patient.
Next Saturday will be program 2, check the Events Calendar for all the details.
For those not yet registered there is still plenty of time, jump on the Link. If you still aren’t sure, we’d love to see you come down and see what it’s all about.
Sunshine, fresh air and a bit of fun, what else would you want to be doing with the family on a Saturday morning?

Welcome to Season 2019/20
Our new summer season will start on Saturday October 5th, beginning at 8am
The full calendar will be shared shortly which will include changes to the U6 OnTrack Program for the coming season. Please use the links below and either Renew or Join as a new member.
An exciting addition to the new season will be the introduction of Centre shorts, that will be worn during both Centre competition and Region & State events. These are LaVic approved so no more need for black tape to cover those brand symbols, many families have encountered over the years.
Registration which has gone from $145 to $155 for Athlete 1 & 2 and $135 to $145 for Child 3 & 4, any subsequent athletes will be free. The increase in fees come partly due to an increase in fee from LaVic and to also partly fund the new shorts.
We’ll see you at the Opening morning
