Age Group Changes
From the commencement of the 2018/2019 Season, Little Athletics Victoria changed the date on which it determines its age groups to 31 December. This has direct implications for some of our athletes and parents.
The changes only effect those athletes born during the period 1 October to 31 December. These athletes will progress 2 age groups.
4 year old athletes who are turning 5 years old on or before 31 December 2019 are eligible to participate and compete in Little Athletics activities in the U6 group at the commencement of the 2019/2020 Season.
Athletes turning 5 years old after 31 December 2019 can commence participation on or after their 5th birthday and will compete as an U6 athlete for the remainder of the season. They will be in the U6 age group for the subsequent season.
The registration fee at Craigieburn Little Athletics for the 2019/2020 Season is $150 per child. This includes the cost of registration with Little Athletics Victoria and insurance. Our component of the fee is used to cover expenses such as hiring the newly established Sprint Athletics Centre, utility costs, equipment upgrades/replacement and administrative costs.
The registration fee includes our coaching program (two training days are held during the week), our weekly Track & Field Competition Days, eligibility to participate in the Cross Country Winter season, Intercentre Competition days, the On-Track program (for U6s and U7s) and special event days.
The fee structure for the 2019/2020 Season is as follows:
1 child = $150
2 children = $300
3 children (10% discount) = $405
4 children (10% discount) = $540
5 children (10% discount) = $675
Athletes are also required to wear a club uniform. The registration fee does not include uniform costs.
For athletes who wish to compete in the Regional Track & Field and/or the Region Multi-Event Carnivals must register and pay separately via LAVic. These fees are not included in our registration fee. The fees associated with the Region Relay Carnival are also not included in our registration fee but the club is responsible for collecting these fees.
