Welcome to Croydon Little Athletics Centre! Our centre objectives are FUN, FAMILY and FITNESS. Please explore our website and keep up to date with our facebook feed below.
In case you are still in doubt if Championship Day is going ahead.. yes, definitely it is! The rain is stopping soon, and we will have a clear morning ahead of us. So no excuses, let's go, compete, and get some medals! ... See MoreSee Less
Wayne from Xpresso Mobile Café with Coffee’s from 8.30am, we also have an engraver for medals on the day for $5 per medal which is much cheaper than in store! If time doesn’t permit they can still engrave medals and have them either posted out to you or you can pick them up later at AKT Trophies in Croydon.
We will continue to monitor the weather but as its Championship Day we will try and get through the program (or worst case as much of it) as we can. If the rain becomes heavier we may delay some events so you’re not competing in terrible conditions, which will mean the program may get pushed back but we will be trying to get through the program.
Club Meetings will be held at approx. 8.45am to give any final instructions for the day and also final opportunities to put your hand up for Club Managers/ Committee Positions for next Season.
Good luck everyone for tomorrow, hopefully the weather is ok and we all enjoy a great day! ... See MoreSee Less
Duties will be assigned by your Team Manager, everyone will be required to assist on the day to ensure the competition runs well.
We have combined several age groups together in some events due to numbers, in some cases we only have one athlete in an age group participating in an event. Whilst you may be competing with another age group or mixed sex, you will still be awarded a medal for your age group/ gender.
Whilst at the moment the weather may not be fantastic, chance of showers expected. We will be keeping an eye on it, but at the moment we will be going ahead with the Program for Saturday. Any changes in the weather we will communicate with you, we will potentially delay start times of events if the weather does change but we will continue with holding Championship Day this Saturday.
Championship Day Rules/ Notes: 1. Clash of Events - Track events will take precedence over the Field Events. If your field event starts first you are to go to your Field event first and we will organise an official to get you in time for your track event. If you have a track event first please also get a Clash Form from your Team Manager to take to your Field Event before your Track Event. 2. Please head straight to your event and arrive 5-10 minutes earlier than the scheduled start time so we can properly marshall you in time for your event. If you are not present at this you may miss your event, we will not be holding up events for athletes so please ensure you are ready at the event prior to the start time. 3. Parents & Family members are not allowed on the track or infield at any time unless you are on duty at an event. 4.Medals will be presented in majority of cases immediately following an event, except where the is a direct clash of events where an athlete needs to move to their next event. In which case the medals will be presented following that event or another time shortly thereafter. There will not be any tickets post events on Championship Day for every event, only the medals for the top 3 placegetters. 5. No Protests on any events at Croydon Championship Day.
Congratulations to all Croydon Athletes who competed over the weekend at the State Championships. It was a fantastic weekend of competition, our athletes giving it their best and enjoying the high level of competition. Congratulations to those athletes who made finals, won Gold, set new PB’s, competed at State Level! It’s not an easy level of competition, just to make it to any State let alone National level competition is extremely difficult! To think that you are in the top 24 in the State is an amazing achievement and you should be very proud of your efforts! Both days of Photos are now available to view!
Thanks to the parents for assisting with their duties over the weekend, everyone’s help is greatly appreciated! Thanks to the Team Managers Jess Dux, Jodi Wilkins (unofficial but she didn’t put her feet up once over the weekend) & Nathan Dux.
