It is with sadness that MWLAC informs its community of the passing of Life Member Mal Jaye.
Mal was a great throws coach and a long-time volunteer at Little Athletics, even though he had no children of his own.
He served on the MWLAC committee for many years, including as President. He was also a member of the Zone committee for many years, including the role of North East Met Zone Co-Ordinator.
Mal’s funeral was to be held in the Southern Chapel of Northern Suburbs Memorial Park, Delhi Road, North Ryde, at 1pm on Wednesday March 18.
The MWLAC Presentation Day will NOT go ahead on March 29, as had been planned.
Given the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 developments, the event will be postponed at this stage.
The committee will continue to assess the situation as it develops and a decision on if and when the event will go ahead, or alternate arrangements, will be advised at a later date.
MWLAC hopes we will have the opportunity to celebrate the 2019/20 performances of our athletes and thanks you for your support throughout the season.
The Little Athletics State Championships scheduled for this weekend (March 14 and 15) will not go ahead.
Please see the statement from LANSW below:
Congratulations to all our competitors who took part in the Multi-Event competition on Saturday.
Although the long jump pits were unusable following overnight rain, we were fortunate to hold the competition under sunny skies – a far cry from two weeks earlier!
For age groups that were affected by the pit closures, season personal-best performances at centre competition were used to calculate long jump scores.
