Season 2016 / 2017 Begins!


With the 2016 / 2017 season well under way, it is time to send through our first edition of E-News for the season. E-News is designed to keep all of our members up-to-date with what is happening in Little Athletics in Victoria (plus those Centre's right on the border!).

This email will be sent monthly to all members and will contain key pieces of information coming from the Centre's and ourselves that you may find relevant to yourself. This edition includes: Latest News, Centre News, Upcoming Events, Calendar and Centre Open Days, LAVic TV and news on the SUBWAY member bib.

Happy Reading!
