A Brief History

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 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.


Our Vision

  • To ensure 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 and to encourage athletes to strive & improve on their personal bests – “To be your best”

Our Aim

Athletes: Our aim is for you to “grow as a person” through the involvement in Altona Little Athletics. We hope you will achieve this by sharing friendship, participating in healthy exercise and by achieving success through friendly competition. This success should be judged by the extent to which you improve your skills and personal performance by doing your best. Athletics gives you the opportunity to participate in a range of activities including running, jumping, throwing and walking.

Parents: you are an essential part of our sport as we do not have a senior body assisting in the running of our programs. By signing the Register of Ordinary Members, you have become members of our Centre and of the Victorian Little Athletics Association. We ask that you actively assist in the many tasks necessary to run our Centre. Without extensive involvement from parents and other volunteers there would be no Altona Little Athletics Centre.
