CENTRE PROGRAM OF EVENTS
The standard program of events for meets held by the Kingborough Little Athletics Centre (KLAC) includes the full range of events offered by Little Athletics Australia, this includes both Track and Field based events.
The current Centre Program is available here.
KLAC also offer a Tiny Tots program, intended for the younger siblings of registered athletes to make the Little Athletic experience a family experience. This program is for 3 and 4 year olds and goes for approximately 30-40 minutes during each Centre meet. It is in addition to the toddler’s races held at the end of the race events for athletes.
Please note that Tiny Tots is unable to be held during Centre Championships and often only a running race can be offered at twilight meets. Further information on Tiny Tots is available here.
At the completion of the regular season, Centre Championships are conducted. Centre Championships are a special time for the athletes, as they compete in each event one last time for the season.
Both heats and finals are conducted for laned race events to determine podium finishes. All athletes who compete in an event receive a ribbon.
There are special rules for competing in the Centre Championships.
Further information on Centre Championships is available here.
