Dear Members,

The Annual General meeting (AGM) is an important event for our club.  It gives members and the committee a broad overview of the organization’s current directions, financial health and confirms our purpose.  It is also a great time to revitalize through the official engagement of members, new and current into key elected positions

The traditional format of AGM’s often involves a number of members meeting in a physical location and voting on a show of hands.  This location was our club room’s, however, our clubrooms are being utilized at present and a capacity limit in place.

To that end, we have decided to hold a hybrid AGM and Presentation to be held at 11:00am, 1st of May 2021 over Zoom.  The hybrid part is that we will be broadcasting from the clubrooms and presenting the major trophies throughout the AGM.

All other awards will be presented after the AGM, by age group out on the track as we have done previously.  Athletes will be advised of when their presentations times are and will be invited to arrive with their fellow team mates to be presented their trophies and awards in persons. We will have a jumping castle for those waiting for their trophies and/or medals.

This therefore allows all members to attend and participate in this meeting from their homes and or at the track where required.  The business to be transacted at a virtual meeting will be the same business that is transacted at a traditional AGM just in a virtual format.

Zoom details to be provided in due course.

Essentially, standard AGM rules however still apply.  If the requisite number of members fail to attend a meeting, there will be no quorum so no business can be transacted. 

The AGM can still be a positive experience for all of us we all go away firmly committed to the club and our goals.

The last athletics event of 2021 is the Commonwealth Bank State Relay Championships at Casey Fields.

With Region being pushed back to next week our twilight program for next Friday night will now be POSTPONED, meaning there will be NO COMPETITION at Casey Fields on Friday 26th February. We are currently looking at holding this Twilight at a later date in the year! Stay tuned for this to be announced!

On Monday we also posted new STRICT rules in regards to entering the arena. This will be enforced this week – if you are not wearing a vest or not asked by a committee member to assist you MUST NOT cross over the fence. You are more than welcome to follow your child around outside of the track fence line – all events are viewable from the fence.

Ross and his team will again be up on the mezzanine with our medal engraver! So if you have any medals lying around that need engraving please take in up to see Ross and his team!


We still require a lot of parent helpers this week! Remember you need to hit 30 parent points for your child/ren to be eligible for an end of season award. Point update will be available by the mezzanine on Saturday.

Hi Everyone,

Just a few reminders for the weekend.

This Weekend is at Edwin Flack Reserve on Manuka Rd, Berwick (behind Football Ground)

Please arrive 1hr before your event or at least 15mins before your Duty so we know you are here.

For the Junior Carnival please arrive before 10am for marshaling etc.

We will have a Marque’s set up for everyone to use just inside the gate. Bring your own seating as there is not a lot at this venue.

Make sure your child is in Full Uniform

Royal Blue Shorts (no logo’s or pockets – unless it is the LAVic Logo)

Cranbourne competition top with Coles Badge sewn on

Commonwealth Bank Patch (Commonwealth Bank sticker over the previous sponsor)

You will need to check-in at the gate on arrival.

This event is over 2 days but is jammed packed so please have your child around the Cranbourne Marques 30 mins before they are due to marshal. Paul and Myself(Mark) will make sure they get to their event.

We have a lot of athletes entered so that means a lot of duties. It is imperative that we all turn up to their duty. I have spread everyone as far as I could with 1 duty still to cover. Please don’t let the centre down and more importantly our kids. If you fail to do your allocated duty you risk your child being Disqualified from Region, Loss of Parent Points and missing out on State Relays.


Paul and I would like to wish everyone a fantastic weekend with plenty of PB’s.

  • Allow at least 1 hr to arrive at Lakeside Stadium, Albert Park. If you park in the car park there is a fee. If you park on Albert Rd you should find some all-day free parking.
  • You will need to be there at least 1hr before your first event.
  • Make sure you have your full uniform with your registration patch and your Coles badge.
  • Make sure you have enough water and sunscreen. The canteen should be open throughout the day.
  • On arrival please see Paul Freestone or Mark Sullivan (0423577536). We will be located on the back straight near the 300m start. Please sit with us so we can make sure your children are at each event. This will create a team environment and atmosphere for all our Athletes.
  • As this event is capped only parents of the athletes are able to attend.
  • A parent duty roster has been put together. It is very important that we fulfill this as the event cannot go on unless we have all duties filled. Please see attached Saturday and Sunday roster.



Thank you all for registering your child. Combined is a great way to meet lifelong friends from other centers, as well as make friends with some other Cranbourne athletes from other age groups

If you have any questions please ring or text Mark Sullivan on 0423 577 536

Go Cranbourne!!!

Hi everyone,

2020 has undoubtedly been challenging for us all. We have all experienced this differently on a personal level and dealt with it in our own way.

Lockdown was harder on some, whilst for others emerging from lockdown felt overwhelming. Yet through it all the human spirit battled and kept going.  It’s that human spirit that has kept us doing the things we love and look forward to each day and not be defeated. Coming back to Little Athletics is just one small but important step in feeling normal again.

Over the past few weeks, there have been many anxious and stressful moments, trying to get the season all backup and running with all the new rules and regulations.  Mistakes were made as we tried different things, but now, as we head into our last week before the Christmas break, it’s a good time to reflect on the fantastic job we have all done to get to this point and all the positive things in the past 2 months, in particular, not just getting the Little Athletics season going at Cranbourne but in our lives as a whole.

Things aren’t quite back to normal, but no with active cases in Victoria and an athletics season we didn’t think was possible a few months ago, it is definitely a great feeling!

So, on that note, let’s keep that feeling going as we head into the Christmas break and on the track. The Committee is truly grateful for all the help given over the past few weeks and let’s continue the positivity and keep showing our kindness to one another. It’s what differentiates us, and embodies our values of being a fun, family orientated, and inclusive Little Athletics club.

See you all on track this Saturday!
