It is with sadness that State Cross Country has now been cancelled for 2021 due to extension of lockdown. Refunds should be coming to all families entered in the next 7-10 days.LAVic is devastated to announce the cancellation of the 2021 State Cross-Country Championships (postponed from 31st July), due mainly to the extension of the Metro Melbourne lockdown and suspension of the Public Events Framework (this permits us to run COVID-safe Championship-sized events).

We understand that this will also disappoint our Little Aths community, and in particular, athletes that have kept up their training in the hope of competing in States.

Obviously, this is not the finale to season 20/21 anyone had hoped or planned for.

We sincerely hope that for our athlete’s sake, COVID-19 outbreaks are beaten into submission and things return to normal soon.

Thanks for your support. Stay safe and bring on season 21/22.

It’s a shame to end Ashleigh’s time at little Athletics this way, but we want to thank everyone at the club, past and present, for everything they have done. We have enjoyed every moment and leave with lifelong friends and many wonderful memories. Good luck to all. #littleathsvic

Congratulations to our little athletes on the return to cross country post Lockdown 5.0. ... See MoreSee Less

Statement from LAVic on today’s announcements!

Stay Safe.Earlier today, in response to the current COVID-19 outbreak, the Victorian State Government announced a state-wide 7-day lockdown, taking effect from 11.59pm tonight (Thursday 27th
May) until 11.59pm Thursday 3rd June. Victorian residents will be permitted to leave their homes for 5 reasons only and will not be permitted to participation in community sport during this time.
All sanctioned Little Athletics activities – competition, training and coaching - scheduled to take place within Victorian state borders must cease during this lockdown period.
While NSW-based Centres affiliated with LAVic can continue to conduct sanctioned activities, (subject to any NSW State Government directions), Victorian-resident members
cannot participate in person. Families of NSW Centres conducting Cross Country are encouraged to contact their Centre to confirm if competition is taking place.

LAVic will update our Centres & Little Athletics families with further details next week regarding the resumption of sanctioned activities.

STATE CROSS COUNTRY RELAYS CHAMPIONSHIPS
In the light of the 7-day lockdown, the State Cross-Country Relays Championships, that were due to be held on Saturday 5th June at Cruden Farm, Langwarrin, have now been re-scheduled and will now take place on Saturday 14th August at the same venue.
Centres will be communicated with in due course on the opportunity to reconfirm entries and make adjustments to their teams.

REGION CROSS COUNTRY CARNIVALS
Entries for Region Cross-Country Carnivals (weekend of the 19th/20th June) remain open and unaffected by today’s developments. Entries close at midday on Monday 7th June.

Little Athletics Victoria will continue to provide updates to its Centres and families as they become available.

Please keep safe!

Has the message been communicated that there is no meet for Croydon / Yarra Ranges tomorrow?? Would hate for people to turn up when it's not on!!
