Athletes are requested to be at the ground at 5.30pm for an 5.45pm start on Friday nights for a compulsory warm up. Athletes will then proceed to their age groups with their group chaperone and begin the first round of events on that days program.
Please note that we take our little athletes protection and privacy very seriously. Please follow our Social Media Policy as governed by Little Athletics Australia.
It is our club policy that any athlete MUST be supervised at all times. If it is not possible for you to be in attendance with your children, you are required to arrange another adult to be responsible for them. DO NOT drop your child off without making prior arrangements for their care. Echuca Moama Little Athletics Centre will not be responsible for children left at the ground after the completion of the program, or unsupervised children during the morning’s competition.
Uniform - It is up to you to ensure your athlete is in the approved EMLAC club uniform. This includes the compulsory club singlet, black shorts, appropriate footwear and your compulsory SUBWAY Patch.
Misbehaviour - the committee has the discretion to disqualify any athlete who is behaving inappropriately from competing in an event/s. Athletes who consistently misbehave may be suspended from all activities by a Centre Executive.

Our centre is reliant solely on volunteers. Without our parent helpers, we cannot run as we simply do not have the man power. We have a roster system in place, and as part of your registration you are agreeing to be placed on our roster. If you cannot do your duty you can reschedule for another time, however we do ask that you attempt to find a replacement family before canceling with us completely. Each family is required to do their bit.
If a family refuses to help or continually misses their scheduled duty without any replacement or contact, EMLAC reserve the right to sit their participating child out of competition. This decision from the executive committee is final. We are a community and we all need to work together.
In the past this has been one of the biggest pain points of the sport. As a centre we need your help and would love all our members support on this. So please get involved, your children will love seeing you take part. Many hands make light work.
Officiating resources can be found here for further information on how to officiate an event. Training and help is also provided by our committee members and other trained helpers.
