Welcome back!

Hopefully everyone has recovered from the traditional Christmas/New Year festivities and is ready to get back in to the second half of the 2018/19 Little Athletics season.

This Saturday (12th January) sees us pick up on Program 1.

Merry Christmas

On behalf of the South Barwon LAC committee I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

We hope that we see everyone back on Saturday 12th January for the start of the second half of the 2018/19 GLAC Track & Field season.
