Welcome to the first edition of the “CLAC Chronicle” our monthly newsletter/update on all things happening at Cranbourne Little Athletics Centre!

Our new 2021/22 Committee have conducted our first meeting, back on Zoom, and everything is coming along nicely as we start planning for our 2021/22 Summer Season.

This year we have seen record numbers compete at Cross Country, which has been fantastic to see, with lots of new faces still joining Cranbourne.

This week, Saturday June 26th, we are back to Edwin Flack Reserve, with the course being reversed. From this week we will have one of our Cranbourne Marquee’s at Edwin Flack as a “home base” for Cranbourne Athletes. You can pop your bags under it, as well as see any of our committee members if you have any questions.

Cross Country Training

We have started Cross Country training down at Casey Fields on a Tuesday night, however with the current COVID conditions we require all athletes to sign up. So be sure to tune into our Facebook Group, Facebook page, and team app.

Please remember that training is NOT a babysitting service and your child cannot train without a parent or guardian in attendance, if you cannot stay please speak to one of our coaches upon arrival.
