South Melbourne District Little Athletics Centre (SMDLAC) uses an online registration process through Little Athletics Victoria. Athletes are encouraged to register by 31 October. To keep the competition manageable we may cap numbers in some age groups.
You can pay online with your credit card (a receipt will be sent to your nominated email account) or make payment by cheque or cash through the Centre registrar (an invoice will be sent to your nominated e-mail account).
Once you have registered and completed the parent duty roster form you can pick up your registration pack including your child’s polo shirt, chest patch and other specific Centre information at a time nominated by the Centre.
Which Age Group?
Age groups are determined by a child’s year and month of birth. The key date is 1 October. Work out how old your child will be at this date. They will be in the age group one year higher e.g. if your child turns 9 before 1 October they will be in U10. If your child turns 9 after 1 October they will be in U9.

Registering a family?
Please download and read the Family Registration Guide . Please note families re-registering from last year will have received an email from Little Athletics Victoria. You should use the instructions in the guide from Pages 1 – 4. If you are a new member and did not receive an email relevant to a primary member please commence your family registration using the instructions from Page 5 – 9.

SMDLAC is totally run by volunteers. Parents/guardians of registered athletes are required to assist with at least 5 competitions out of 15 over the season – completing the registration process requires that you nominate the dates where you will assist. You don’t have to be an expert and we’ll teach you the basics and provide guidance. To fill in the duty roster click here
