Bring a Friend Day - Saturday 24th November

Do you have friends, neighbours, cousins, who might appreciate the Little Athletics experience?

In that case, we invite you to invite them to our next meeting on Saturday 25th November. There would be no need for them to register, and they can join into to the regular program, in the appropriate age groups.

And if you do bring a friend, the club will be happy to show you appreciation - our admin team will give you vouchers you can use at the canteen - a free cup of coffee for adults, or a treat of equivalent value for your kids. So you get to show people the club, and get a small reward for you as well. How good is that?

And hopefully your friends will like the experience and become members themselves.

It is not too late to start Little Athletics this season!

Keilor Little Athletics Centre (KLAC) has just run two very successful Come and Try Days, and the season will start its competition program next Saturday 13th October, 9am to 12am

But it is not too late to join, at all. In fact members join KLAC throughout the season, and we always welcome newcomers.

We even allow a free trial if you wish to experience Little Athletics for yourself.


However this does not mean that people who are interested in competing should not join now. KLAC runs a very sophisticated program for collecting and making results available online.

BUT results are only available for paid members, who have supplied proof of age documents - and these results are only supplied for events AFTER you have paid.

So if you interested in accruing results, and earning PBs that count towards our PB program, we strongly suggest that you join and pay now, and make sure that you have supplied proof of age documents.

But for new members who are still curious about Little Aths - come along and see for yourself, and no, it is not too late to join at all

State Cross Country - Lake Dewar, Myrniong, 28 July 2018

Seasoned Keilor Cross Country Athletes are used to competing in the harshest of conditions at Cruden Farm, but this year we enjoyed some fabulous winter sunshine at the beautiful Lake Dewar at Myrniong. 

The 2018 State Cross Country at Myrniong turned on the best winter weather we have had in some time.  It was a beautiful location and appeared more like a festival with music playing, food trucks and lots of families enjoying the sunshine.  The track was green and a gorgeous change of scenery for our athletes (one u14 athlete did comment how nice the scenery was on their run down the hill J).

All Keilor athletes performed spectacular as always, and cheered each other on, before and after their races.  There certainly was some tough competition, but Keilor managed to run better than some of the School Sport Victoria Cross Country winners on the day, which is a great effort.

Special mention to the following athletes who managed to win an individual medal:

Mitchel Langborne – Gold in the boys u13

James Wilcox – Silver in the boys u14

Also a special mention to the following teams.  State Cross Country combined athletes times and event position to determine first, second and third and congratulations to the following Keilor Teams:

3rd U11 Boys:  Noah McMenamin 6th, Royce Goudy 24th, Campbell Scaife 34th

3rd U14 Girls: Talia Roshier 11th, Alyssa Di Martino 14th, Alicia Kisielewsk 29th

All of the Keilor Athletes performed spectacular against some great competition.  Thank you also to all the parent helpers on the day.  Cross Country Season is about to close so we are looking forward to seeing  you all at Little Aths in September for the Summer Season.
