LAVic Metropolitan Melbourne COVID-19 Protocols


New COVID Safe Protocols summary:


1. When you arrive, head to the registration table where a COVID Safe Official will: 


  • ask you to sanitise your hands

  • register your attendance with a QR Code or on a paper form

  • ask you to pop a wrist band on to show that you have been registered

  • ask you to: 

    • head to the member registration table to collect your subway patch

    • then head to the uniform table to get your new uniform top

    • then stand in line behind your age group witches hat (no baskets this year)

    • ask you to head back to your age group witches hat in between events if the next event is in progress with another age group, to avoid event congestion


2.     A few other things that we need to do:


    • the warm up will be done in groups of 10 kids

    • all attendees are to please wear masks, including all children 12 years and over (athletes 12 and over do not need to wear masks during their events)

    • ensure that only one parent/guardian attends, unless one of the parents/guardians is assisting with duties. Siblings of Little Athletes are welcome.

    • ensure no spectators attend just yet, e.g. grandparents are not permitted just yet unfortunately unless they have a particular duty on the day

    • ensure that parents/guardians hold on to their children’s jumpers and water bottles as we are not permitted to use the usual baskets

There are some events specific requirements, e.g. the kids need to sanitise their hands after their high jump attempts, but Age Group Managers will know what to do there. 

The full details of the COVID Safe Protocols are here on the website.

Message from our President - 2020/21 Summer Season

Who is looking forward to a fresh, sporting start for our kids this Summer? We certainly are down here at Kew Little Athletics Centre!


Our new Summer Season starts Saturday 14 November at 8.15am at Stradbroke Park, Kew East and we are literally bursting to get out onto the track again!


Our Committee and tireless volunteers have been hard at work behind the scenes preparing for our big return to competition for the last few months. Here's what we've been up to!

  • we won a $3,500 Equipment Grant from Coles, for new marquees to protect our Little Athletes and Families from the Summer sun, as well as new javelins

  • we set up TeamApp to revolutionize communications with all our members (we LOVE TeamApp!)

  • we ran a club survey to get your feedback about what we do well and how we could do better

  • purchased additional high jump mats to reduce Little Athlete waiting times

  • organised for all Little Athletes to receive an OFFICIAL KEWLAC uniform top as part of their registration this year

  • purchased name badges for all our Committee members, volunteers and coaches so you can now easily identify who can help you whenever you need it

  • established COVID safe protocols to allow us to compete in a COVID safe way, which comply with Little Athletics Victoria and council requirements

  • and many other things...

This season we need to do a few things to keep us COVID safe, which you will notice but we hope will become second nature pretty quickly until restrictions are eased further, which we expect to be in a couple of short weeks. These are set out below.


We can't wait to welcome all our returning members back and news ones too on Saturday 14 November at Stradbroke Park at 8.15am! In the meantime, please download TeamApp, search for Kew LIttle Athletics Centre and request access to: 'New Season: All Kew Little Athletes and Families' and the age group access group for your child e.g. 'Under Kew 6 Little Athletes', we you get all the latest news.




Kind regards,




Anna Kiely

KEWLAC President
