The Trial Athlete Offer (also known as “Come & Try”) is designed for children who haven’t been a member of a Little Athletics Centre previously and wish to have a go.
At Team Caulfield you’re invited to 1 competition trial and 1 training trial – free of charge – before committing to full membership. This gives everyone involved a good understanding of what Little Athletics is and how the weekly events operate.
Little Athletics Victoria’s Trial Athlete portal is now live. We ask that you register your child for the trial offer on the Little Athletics Victoria website via the following link https://lavic.com.au/membership. You will need to select the “New Member” option, choose Caulfield Little Athletics as your centre, select “Option A: Trial Athlete Offer” and once you’ve completed the registration process, print your temporary athlete patch ready to bring along to your trial sessions.
You are welcome to come to a competition day on a Saturday morning. Take a look at our Season Calendar for a date that suits your family.
Make sure you print your child’s temporary athlete patch and attach to your child’s top. We recommend arriving at the track before 8:15am for a 8:30am start to allow some extra time to check in. Competition usually finishes around 11:00am depending on the program.
On competition days athletes take part in a range of track and field events depending on their age, and the focus is on athlete improvement and personal bests.
Athletes are in their age group for the morning (e.g U7 Girls, U7 Boys) and are supervised by an Age Group Manager and Assistants who are parents with children in that age group.
Please note that our Under 6 program is called On Track and is an LAVic program that is designed to develop skills rather than as formal competition.
Training is held at the track on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (U8+) at 5:30pm to 6:30pm during the summer season.
Training is coached by high level coaches to assist in developing children’s athletic skill across all events.
As a trial athlete you can register for your trial training session by emailing our coaching coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions please email our registrar Jo at email@example.com.
