The Australian Little Athletics Championship (ALAC) is a State/ Territory teams event for the Under 13 Age Group, and an individual multi-event championship for the Under 15 age group. Athletes will be selected by the LAACT following the LAACT Championships. Athletes wishing to be considered are required to meet a number of pre-qualification requirements. These requirements will be provided to athletes in these age groups during the season.
Towards the end of each season, the Centre Championships are conducted for all Weston Creek registered Little Athletes. These are usually held over three or four Saturday mornings (but may need later re-scheduling depending on weather conditions). Continue reading WCLAC Championships→

Achievement tickets are awarded for each event in which an athlete competes during the club season. These tickets should be pasted in their personal performance booklet.
The purpose of this is to display the progress they have made in each event during the year. Further, upon competing in their first thirty (30) events and each multiple of fifty (50) events, athletes will be awarded a “merit achievement” badge which is suitable for sewing on their uniform or a tracksuit (an athlete can receive badges for 30, 50, 100, 150, 200, etc events competed)
Centre colours are red and black and the official competition uniform consists of a red (and black) T-shirt emblazoned with the Redback logo complemented by black shorts/skins. A red and black singlet, red and black crop top or red and black body suit are permissible in lieu of the T-shirt as official competition uniform, However, being mindful of the Australian weather, WCLAC requires athletes to wear T-shirts when not competing in an event.
Uniform T-shirts, shorts and club jackets ($TBA) can be purchased or ordered from the canteen. However singlet and crop tops are not offered for sale by the Centre.
In all competition outside the Centre (e.g. ACT Carnivals & Championships, etc), the official Centre Uniform must be worn. This will include an age patch, registration number, and any current sponsor’s logo. For carnivals outside WCLCLA, competitors will not be allowed to take part in any event if they fail to comply with the uniform rules.
The following are the best performances recorded by Weston Creek athletes at the Centre Championships, the ACTLAA Regional Carnival, the ACTLAA Championships or the Australian Teams Championships since the 1979-80 season. The information is updated at the end of each season. Continue reading Records→
