The 50th Annual General Meeting for Croydon Little Athletics Centre will take place on Saturday 3rd October, at 10am-11am via Videoconference (Zoom – details supplied separately). The committee has consulted Little Athletics Victoria and there will be constitutional changes proposed at the AGM, and therefore we are requesting one or both parents/ guardians who’s name are the athletes registrations for LAvic be present so that voting can take place.

In preparation for the AGM, the Croydon LAC Committee are asking parents & guardians to register for the AGM to understand the numbers of attendees. Saturday 3rd October 2020 10am-11am Via Videoconfer...
Season 2020/21 update August would normally have seen the club announce the opening of registrations for our new Little Athletics season. Unfortunately due to current stage 4 restrictions, this has been put on hold. Our Committee continue to be in close contact with LAVic, and await their direction. Whilst they are confident the season will go ahead, they have advised that there will be a delay in the season opening date which in the past has taken place on the first Saturday of October. LAVic are in regular contact with the State Government and will be able to provide us with more detail with regards to the starting date and format for the new season as and when restrictions are eased. Our Committee are passionate about getting athletes back out on the track and active. We will be doing our best to make sure that all directives from LAVic are followed. How have you been keeping fit during lockdown? We would love to see photos of our athletes in action as they prepare for the new season. Running, jumping, throwing, hopping, skipping or walking, pop a photo in the comments below. Thank you Croydon Little Athletics Club Committee 2020/21 ... See MoreSee Less
We are excited to announce that the 2019-20 Presentation Day will be held next Friday 18th September at 6pm via a Pre Recorded video.
The decision to hold Presentation as a pre-recorded video wasn’t an easy decision, we would much prefer to hold a physical Presentation Day but this doesn’t appear to be an option unfortunately.
The alternative was to hold a videoconference such as Zoom for Presentation Day, however the decision was made to proceed with a Pre Recorded video as we could have more fun with it, less awkward and much easier to organise than several Zoom meetings. Either way, we’re hoping this is a once off and the next Presentation day will be in person and we can make it a real celebration!
The pre recorded video will be uploaded to Youtube and we will provide the URL for this through our website, email and social media only. The video status on Youtube will be set to ‘unlisted’, meaning only people who have the URL will be able to watch the video, you will not be able to see it on our Youtube channel and you won’t find it through the search function. We will keep the video on Youtube until after the AGM by which time we will remove it.
We will only be using award winners names in text and voice, there won’t be any photos or videos of athletes used. If you don’t want your child/ren’s names mentioned in text or voice please let us at the latest by this Saturday 12th September so we can remove their names.
The question on everyone’s lips is when can I pick up my trophy/ certificate? Once we are in possession of the trophies and certificates, more importantly when restrictions ease, we will organise pickup times and communicate this to all families.
Please don’t forget our AGM which will be held Saturday October 3rd via Zoom, details will be supplied shortly. For those who haven’t yet registered your intent to attend please do so via the below link;
In other Season 2020-21 updates, whilst the ‘roadmap’ was presented last weekend by the Government, there weren’t clear guidelines on how we will return to Community Sport. Broadly, in 2H pencil, we’re hopeful with all things going well we could see at the earliest training sessions begin at the end of October (Step 3), Competitions at the earliest at the end of November (Step 2). Let’s hope! We will keep you posted with updates as they come through. ... See MoreSee Less
