Little Athletics Victoria CEO Anthony McIntosh today released a statement about COVID and protocol regarding a return to training - please click the link below. Whilst this statement details protocols in a return to training in the current environment, it also states:
"A reminder that, for the time being, all Little Athletics training and competition activity remains suspended. As such, it is not sanctioned or insured."
With this in mind, the Croydon LAC Committee believes that until training and competitions are sanctioned and have insurance for our volunteers we will unfortunately not commence with any training or competitions. Whilst our coaches are unable to hold training sessions currently, if you would like to have training sessions designed for you please let us know and we will get our coaches to contact you to help you get back out running again! ...

You will be aware of the ongoing situation related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Croydon Little Athletics is monitoring the situation alongside with Little Athletics Victoria (LAVic). At this point, all Little Athletics activities should also proceed as normal, and if changes are required, we will be communicating as soon as possible.
What can we do now?
All of us in Little Athletics have a role to play in minimising the risk of the coronavirus infection to ourselves and others.
All attendees to Little Athletics activities (kids and parents) are strongly encouraged to:
- WASH hands often WITH SOAP and running water, for AT LEAST 20 seconds. - DRY with paper towel or hand dryer. - TRY not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth. - COVER your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don't have a tissue cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow. - ISOLATE yourself at home if you feel sick. If you take medication, ensure you have adequate supplies. - PHONE your GP first if you need medical attention. They will tell you what to do. - CONTINUE health habits: exercise, drink water, get plenty of sleep, and now is the time to quit smoking. Call the Quitline 137 848. - DON'T wear a face mask if you are well. - BUY an alcohol-based hand sanitiser with over 60 per cent alcohol. - GET the flu shot (available April). - SHAKING HANDS is optional!
We're fast approaching the end of the season which means we're getting closer to our AGM. This year not only will we be voting on special resolution changes, but more importantly voting in Committee Positions for Season 2020-21. We have had a few people put up their hands for roles for next year & we're very thankful for those people, however we’re still in need of a few positions to be filled.
If you would like to take an active role in helping the Centre grow and improve, we encourage you to take on the rewarding challenge of joining the Committee. You will be given training by the current Committee to bring you up to speed in the various roles and make your transition efficient and effective. If you are interested please speak to Nathan Dux (President) or Michelle Mitchell (Secretary), or via the club email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are still seeking to fill the following Executive roles: • President • Treasurer The importance of filling these roles cannot be understated as without them the Centre cannot legally function and will fold but by nominating early we can ensure continuity through by formalising appointments at the AGM.
The following General Committee roles are also vacant: • Canteen • Head of Coaching Club Managers: • Blue Thunder/ Gazelles • Comets • Phoenix/ Redbacks/ Demons ... See MoreSee Less
