Important Centre Updates

Seaford Little Athletics continues to be a COVID safe centre and will follow the direction of the State Government, Athletics Australia, and Little Athletics Victoria moving forward.

The 2021/22 season of Little Athletics is going to be a lot of fun, however, it will continue to look a little different.
In order to commence competition and training, the club continues to comply with the COVID protocols outlined by LAVic.
There is a copy of LAVic’s detailed Metropolitan Melbourne COVID -19 Protocols on the Little Athletics Victoria website.

Below is a summary of their expectations for competition and training.
Competition and training protocols.

  • Parents or guardians must check-in via the QR code located at the BBQ and Registrar desk
  • Attendees to bring their own drink bottles
  • When mandated, it is requested that everyone who is aged 12 and over, continue to wear masks when not competing and unable to maintain a 1.5m social distance.
  • There will be no communal clothing bucket.
  • The physical distancing of 1.5m must be adhered to by participants, volunteers and parents/guardians at all times. 

Everyone is super excited to return to Little Athletics after a long time without sports, but you MUST STAY HOME if you have any cold or flu symptoms. If anyone attends Little Athletics competition or training and is displaying cold or flu-like symptoms, they will be asked to leave, get tested for COVID and will require a medical certificate to return to competition and/or training, as per LAVic COVID protocols.

There will be COVID Safe Officials (CSO) at both competition and training. These are Emily McLellan and Dean Lambert. Please do not hesitate to ask them any COVID Little Athletics related questions.

Let’s make this a safe and super season.

Extreme Weather Conditions

Should the weather conditions be considered extreme, the Committee will convene to make a decision regarding the day's program as early as possible to provide enough notice to our community.  The decision will be communicated via Facebook and email. 

The decision to compete or not compete is never an easy decision to make, but at all times the safety of the Little Athletes are paramount.  Parents are encouraged to make an independent decision regarding whether their children will participate or not.

We will advise if Little Athletics has been cancelled only, not that it is going ahead as scheduled.  If there has been no public announcement, competition is running.  If the weather deteriorates after this time, then we will make a decision as and when required.
