About Altona LAC
The Altona Little Athletics Centre is a member of the Victorian Little Athletics Association (VLAA) and is the 41st Centre to be established in Victoria. The Altona Centre began when three clubs, Altona North, Seaholme and Westona left the Williamstown Centre to start competition closer to home.
The Altona and St. Mary’s Clubs helped form the new centre and the 1969/70 season saw five clubs competing in Altona.
In the early years the Altona East club formed but has since folded. In 1994 the (Altona Meadows) Laverton club joined the Altona Centre after the Laverton Centre folded. Inter-club competition at Altona consists of track & field from September to March at the George Nevitt Athletics track and cross country (see page 16 for cross-country details).
