REGISTRATION INFORMATION 2020/21 SEASON

The LAVic online registration portal will open on 14 October 2020.  Athletes must register online at https://lavic.com.au/centres/wangaratta/ prior to attending our program to ensure that they have insurance cover.  This season, because of COVID-19 Protocols, and specifically the requirement to organise athletes in groups of 10 for competition, registrations will close on Sunday 8 November 2020.

COVID-19 Protocols

When you join Wangaratta Little Athletics Centre for the 2020/21 Season, you acknowledge that COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the operations of Centre, resulting in a number of changes to the usual operating protocols and event program.  All members of our Centre must abide by all COVID-19 protocols and restrictions including:

  • A parent or guardian must be in direct supervision at all times when their child is at Little Athletics
  • The parent/guardian is responsible for supervising children at a sanctioned competition and training activities
  • The presence of parents/guardian is required for the safe conduct of sanctioned Little Athletics activities
  • Physical distancing (>1.5m) must be observed by all attendees at all times (athletes are exempt when training/competing)
  • Spectators who are not required or essential to the conduct of sanctioned activities cannot attend LIttle Athletics
  • Competition (races & events) and training group sizes cannot exceed 10 athletes at any time (excludes officials, coaches etc)
  • Attendees should avoid all contact with others, such as handshaking and giving high fives

Returning athletes registered in 2019/20 will also be eligible for a 15% discount on the LAVic component ($82) of the fee.  This will be processed as a refund by LAVic following payment of registration.  Please contact LAVic directly if you have any questions regarding the discount.

New Members

Children who haven't been a member of a Little Athletics Centre previously are invited to trial 2 competition days of Little Athletics at the beginning of the season (Week 1 and Week 2), before committing to full membership.  There are no refunds once a membership has been paid, and the two free trial weeks are not discounted - the full membership is payable.  ONce a trial athlete is registered, their results from week 1 and week 2 are manually entered into the ResultsHQ system.

A birth certificate must be sited as proof of age for all new registrations (U6-U16).  Birth certificates can be presented to our Registrar at the Information Tent on Friday night.  Any new members wanting to fast track this process can take a photo of the Birth Certificate and send it as a Message via the @wangaratta20 Facebook page.

Age Groups

Athletes must be registered and compete in the correct age group.  Please use the table below to work out which age group your athlete will be in.  Athletes born in 2016 cannot register for Little Athletics until they have turned 5.  These new Under 6 athletes will then repeat the U6 program in the next calendar season 2021/22.

Club Uniform

All athletes must wear our Wangaratta Little Athletics Centre singlet or crop top with their official Subway Patch and black shorts.

SInglets and crop tops cost $35.  We also sell black LAVic shorts for $25, but these are not compulsory.  Athletes are welcome to wear any black shorts with their club top.

Uniforms can be purchased from the Information Tent at our Friday night competition and on Subway Patch Collection Day, which will be held on Tuesday 27 October from 4-6pm at the Bill Eaton Athletics Complex.

Season Dates

The 2020/21 season will run for 15 weeks from Friday 30 October through until Friday 19 March, with a Summer Break during School Holidays.  We have scheduled our program to fit around the modified LAVic Season Calendar.
