A Brief History

As the 41st member of Little Athletics Victoria – the Altona Little Athletics Centre began in 1969. Little Athletics is a modified children’s athletics program for 5 to 15 year athletes of all abilities. Victorian born and bred, Little Athletics started in Geelong and now boasts 100,000 athletes across Australia.


The Altona Centre began when three clubs, Altona North, Seaholme and Westona left the Williamstown Centre to start competition closer to home.
Altona and St. Mary’s Clubs helped form the new Centre and the inaugural season saw five clubs competing in Altona. In the early years the Altona East club formed but has since closed. In 1994 the Altona Meadows/Laverton club joined the Altona Centre after the Laverton Centre closed.


In May 2014, due to our small numbers, our members voted to form an amalgamated unified Centre – Altona Little Athletics Inc.


Altona Little Athletics Centre (ALAC) has over 50 years of producing great little athletes in the Altona district of Hobsons Bay.


The Altona facility is located at George Nevitt Athletics Track – Sugargum Drive Altona. The venue is named in memory of Victorian Little Athletics Life Governor and inaugural Altona Little Athletics Centre Life Member, George Nevitt.


Our Vision

To ensure the equal opportunities are created for all involved. To ensure that all athletes and families enjoy their experience being part of the Altona Little Athletic Centre. To provide a happy & friendly environment for all families. To encourage athletes to strive & improve on their personal bests – “To be your best”


Members will be advised during the summer season of our forthcoming AGM/Presentation Day for 2016-17.


Voting and placement of new committee members for the following season and any general Centre business will be discussed. If you are interested in becoming part of the running of the Centre, please approach a current committee member for further information.
