HOW TO REGISTER
Registrations usually open mid-late August each year via the Little Athletics Victoria (LAVic) website. However, with the current Stage 4 restrictions in the State of Victoria, registration will remain closed until further advised by the State Government.
If you are a new member, once the registration portal opens, follow the instructions on the LAVic webpage and make sure to choose Craigieburn Little Athletics Centre as your local centre. If you are considering the free trial, just submit the registration without payment (you can pay the fee after your free trial is completed).
On the first day of competition come along with Proof of Age (such as a birth certificate, passport) and Proof of Payment (if you have paid).
Once your registration is complete and payment is made, you can organise uniforms and your child’s registration tag.
If you are a returning member, once the registration portal opens, follow the instructions on the LAVic webpage and make sure to select Craigieburn Little Athletics Centre. On the first day of competition come along with Proof of Payment (no need for Proof of Age documentation as it would have been previously supplied).
Once your registration is complete and payment is made, you can organise uniforms and collect your child’s registration tag.
