Extension for trialists

Manly Warringah Little Athletics is going to extend the opportunity for trialists to compete at the centre for two more Saturdays (Week 6 and Week 7).

Given the impact of Covid-19 on sporting seasons, the Committee has decided to offer the extended opportunity for interested young athletes to sample the fun of Little Athletics at the Narrabeen Academy of Sport on Saturday mornings.

Anyone wishing to participate as a trialist is requested to fill in this form prior and bring it with you on the day: Trial-Visiting Athlete form. Pre-filling of the form will make process easier on the day.

It is timely to also remind past, present and future athletes that registration with MWLA is still open.

We are not required to cap our numbers at this stage and look forward to welcoming as many athletes to our centre as possible.

All competition is being held on Saturday mornings at the Academy of Sport track.

Competition is still being split in order for MWLA to meet government health guidelines which restrict the number of people attending the Academy track and field area at one time, with events for under-7 to under-10 athletes beginning at the later time of 10am.

Centre Training, with specialist coaches for competitors from under-9 and above, continues to be held each Monday night at the Academy of Sport from 6pm. For athletes aged under-13 and upwards a 3000 metre race is held prior, at 5.45pm.

Club training for Manly, Peninsula and Cromer athletes runs from 5.30pm to 7pm on Wednesday nights.

So come and join in the fun that athletics provides for all ages.

Manly Warringah Little Athletics is one of the oldest, largest and most successful Centres in NSW having begun on the Northern Beaches in 1970 – now in its 50th season. The following five Clubs compete together at Narrabeen on a Saturday morning from September to March:
Cromer   Manly   Peninsula   Seaforth   Wakehurst

The Clubs of MWLAC are differentiated by the colour of their uniform, and their Wednesday night training location. Families usually choose a club based upon their friendships, or where they live and go to school. Individual Club Training is held on a Wednesday evening and Centre Training (for specialist athletes from U9+) on a Monday evening at Narrabeen. Please select the “Centre Information” drop-down tab above for complete information regarding Registration, Training, Competition, Season Calendar and much more.

Traditionally, competition is held for 20 weeks at the Sydney Academy of Sport, Wakehurst Parkway, Narrabeen on Saturday mornings from 7:30am (with the occasional Friday night twilight session in January from 5:30pm).

The Manly Warringah Centre encourages participation in a large number of events for enjoyment and skill development combined with achieving personal bests and having fun. It caters for male and female athletes from U/7 to U/17 and welcomes our U/6 Pocket Rockets half way through the season – commencing in January
