CLAC Chronicle Volume 10

Welcome to the latest edition of Cranbourne Little Athletics Centres online newsletter – The CLAC Chronicle.

Cross Country

Cross Country Season is in full swing, with some of our highest ever numbers competiting this year, even with the poor weather we have been having.

Just a reminder that all athletes that competed in the 2021/22 Summer Season, you are eligible to join in for the 2022 Cross Country Season at any time.

Training continues to run every Thursday at Casey Fields 5 pm-6 pm. Just a reminder that a parent\guardian MUST be in attendance at all times – whether this is training or Comp Days.

Cross Country Relays

After 2 years of not being able to run Cross Country Relays, due to COVID 19, on Saturday 4th June we had over 21 Teams representing Cranbourne and 5 athletes running in Gippsland Country Teams. I think all athletes had a fantastic day out at Cruden Farm, no matter the results, the Cranbourne Spirit was once again as high as ever with everyone supporting each other. 

We walked away with 3 podiums for the day

Winners: GCR U16 Boys (feat James Meier)
GCR U13-U16 Multi Class (feat Tegan James & Lucas Crowley)
3rd Place: U14 Girls (Shayla Warwick, Jess Monduc & Shea Culpin)

Open Days

Again the Cranbourne team spirit has been high at Open Days this year. We had a lot of athletes compete at the Seaford Open Day, on 28th May, bringing home PLENTY of medals. This weekend we have a lot of athletes running at Knox Open Day – Good Luck to all athletes. 

Please note the normal Berwick program will still be running this Saturday. 

Cross Country Region Carnival

The 2022 Cross Country Region carnival will take place at Edwin Flack Reserve on Saturday 16th July. Registrations are now open – if you need a hand with registrations, please let us know via email or on Facebook. 


We have had a few questions about how athletes can progress through to the State Champions – simply put, All athletes that compete and complete the relevant event at the Region Cross Country Carnival, are eligible to compete at the State Cross-Country Championships

The state championships will be held at Lake Dewar on Saturday 6th August.

2022/23 Summer Season

With the likely hood of no lockdowns/restrictions coming, the 2022/23 Summer Season is looking at a traditional early October start date.

All final dates including Region, State, Relays and Combined events should be available after the annual LAVic Conference – which will in take place in the next 6-8 weeks.  

Presentation Night

On Saturday 14th May, we held our 2022 Presentation Night at Gravity Zone. Everyone in attendance had a fantastic night, and I am sure kids should’ve slept well after bouncing all night. 

2021/22 Cranbourne Little Athletics Award Winners

For those that couldn’t make it, don’t stress, all awards will be able to be picked up once we start getting back onto the track. 

Annual General Meeting

On Saturday 30th April, we held our annual general meeting via Zoom. 

Thank you to all those that attended for those that couldn’t make it you can view the minutes below: Cranbourne LAC AGM Minutes

2022/23 Committee

At the AGM our new committee was elected with a few new faces – especially on the Executive Committee.

Head Coach – Adam B

Adam has been around at the centre now for numerous years. Adam last year took on the starting on the back straight as well as being an assistant coach. Adam last year took specialists training sessions for the State Combined Events as well as warming athletes up for State Events. Adam comes in with a wealth of knowledge and experience as an athlete and I’m sure we all, parents and children, can learn something from Adam.  

Registrar – Bronwyn P

Bron has taken on the role as Head Registrar this year. She has been an assistant to Ross over the past few years, so she has learnt from the best and now possesses all the knowledge when it comes to registrations. Bron is also our current Cross-Country Team Manager, so if you have competed in Cross Country you would’ve already met Bron. Bron and her team cannot wait to help you once our summer season starts. 

Secretary – Katrina B

Katrina has been around the centre for numerous years now and always had her hand up to get involved. Katrina comes to us with great knowledge of administration and is looking forward to assisting everyone. 

Sponsorship & Grants – David Kohl

David has only been at Cranbourne LAC now for two years, but each and every week he is wanting to learn something new. Last year Dave jumped on as an assistant coach, teaching children events he excelled at as an athlete, and this year has decided to take on the role as Sponsorship and Grant Manager. Dave has a wealth of experience through his working life dealing with Sponsors and Government Grants. Dave looks forward to meeting all you local business owners, to get on board as a sponsor.
