Please note at Bendigo we have an early bird fee of $100.00 which must be fully paid by 30th September to be eligible. Registration after the early bird cut-off date will be the full season fee of $130.00 per child.

Athletes registered last season will receive an invitation to re-register AND a password to log onto the LAVic website.

PLEASE NOTE: Whether you pay online or not you still need to attend a registration day to pick up your registration pack including your child’s chest patch and other specific Centre information that may be available.

If it is your child’s first registration or they have had a season off, you will also need to produce proof of age (birth certificate or passport).

The starting age for Little Athletics in Victoria is 5 years of age. Children must have turned 5 before registering otherwise they will not be covered under insurance.


Registering for the new season

The new season will get underway at the end of September. The start date is yet to be confirmed and is dependent upon the Little Athletics Victoria calendar of events. Little Athletics Victoria preference is that all athletes register on-line. This facility will become available from the end of August onwards. 


Early Bird Discount

Discount for early payment of registration will only be valid upon payment prior to the advertised date. You may be able to register on-line and NOT pay, however the discount will only be relevant with payment. i.e. you may register in September but if payment is not received until after the start of the season, the discount does not apply. We offer the discount as an encouragement to assist us with getting all our athletes on our system and up and running on time for the first event on the first day.


Feedback and Queries

Thank you to all parents who assisted during the year and provided support, assitance during competition and feedback to the committee. The 2014-2015 season is now finished, however preparation is already underway for the upcoming season and we appreciate any feedback you may have from this season and any suggestions for the future. We have several vacancies on our committee with our AGM coming up shortly.

Our committee is also looking for assistance with data entry, registrations, hand-book editing and policy renewal prior to September. 

If you have any questions regarding the current season or suggestion to make for the coming season, you are invited to put them forward to the committee either personally by attending our monthly meetings or via email or post.
