WELCOME TO WODEN LITTLE ATHLETICS CLUB

Our season runs from October to March and promotes fitness and fun for children aged 5 to 16. The Little Athletics motto is "Family, Fun & Fitness" and we strive to make this motto a reality each and every week at our club.

About the WLAC

Our 2012-13 season was highly successful for the Woden Little Athletics Club. In recognition of our clubs participation at the ACT Little Athletics Association carnivals and our athletic achievements, WLAC was awarded with the; Mick Morris Relay Championship Shield, Multi Event Championship Shield, Tom & Lyn Stead Southside Championship Shield and the Dennis Goodwin ACT Championship Trophy. Congratulations and well done to everyone involved!

Club competitions days for this season are run Saturday mornings at Boomanulla Oval, Cnr Goyder & Kyeema Streets, Narrabundah. Come along and join us...

      Club Annual General Meeting (AGM) & Presentation Day

        Link to event flyer

        On Sunday, 30 March, 9.30am sharp to about 11.30am at Eastlake Football Club, the club will hold its Annual General Meeting and Presentation.

        We will aim to commence proceedings at 9.30am sharp. The reason for this is so we can recognise our ALAC athletes before they rush away to a ALAC training session. Once we have recognised our ALAC athletes parents and committee members will conduct the AGM in an adjoining room while the kids/athletes/siblings are entertained by the Great Zamboni, a local magician!

        The purpose of the AGM is to formally close the 2013-14 season with the President's and Treasurer's Reports and to recognise the start of the 2014-15 season with the election of a new committee. While we are lucky to have some of the 2013-14 committee staying on, we still seek new people with fresh ideas and energy to help keep WLAC one of Canberra's best junior sports clubs! There will be several committee positions becoming vacant for which we seek new parent volunteers.

        The AGM/magician should conclude around the same time and, after a short break we will commence with the presentations.

        For the presentations, all athletes from U6 and above will be presented with their WLAC season medallions, including a Little Athletics commemorative 50th anniversary medallion for all and season certificates. For U8's and above there will also be the annual participation and championship trophies awarded.

        There will some catering provided for the kids (at the end of the entertainment) while parents can access Eastlake's facilities for refreshments.

        The committee has gone to some effort to prepare for these events so we encourage as many members as possible to come along and help mark the end of a very successful 2013-14 season.

          Congratulations to WLAC for winning the ACT Championships!
        • The first big news is the outstanding performance of our athletes at last weekend's ACT Championships. All of our athletes, very well supported by parents and committee members, were terrific representatives of our club and we are very grateful for their efforts. It is through their efforts that Woden was the most successful participating club, narrowly outpointing Ginninderra. It was a great way to finish the year and we enjoyed seeing so many happy Woden athletes during the weekend.
