Summer Competition

The Summer Program consists of weekly track and field competition from October to February each year. Details can be found below.

Location

Melville Little Athletics meets are held at Len Shearer Reserve, Booragoon on Saturday mornings and some Wednesday/Friday evenings. 

Program of Events

The weekly program of events alternates between Program 1 and Program 2 throughout the summer season. There is a calendar of competition events available that identifies which program will be running on a particular day.

Program Management

Events are directed by the announcer over the PA system from the start to completion of the program. The announcer will endeavour to keep all events running on time.  Competitors and parents need to listen out for the announcer throughout the day, as there may be slight changes to marshalling times. The Arena Manager and Field Arena Manager, working closely with the announcer, modify the program if/when problems arise to ensure that an early as possible finish is achieved.

Club Rosters

Club parents on roster are responsible for setting up and putting away the equipment for each site on competition days. All parents should receive a roster of duties from their respective club. The equipment is to be set up by 7.45am for morning meets and 4.45pm for twilight meets.  Please arrive at the time designated by your club officials, sign on for your roster at the sign-in desk in front of the shed door, and proceed to your site and prepare it for competition.

Results

Melville Little Athletics Centre endeavour to make results from the weekend’s competition available as soon as possible after the event. These are made available on the summer results page of this website.
