2019/20 MWLAC Award Winners

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions we are not in a position to set a date for our end of season presentation. It’s disappointing that we are unable to showcase our athletes in front of a large crowd of supporters, but rest assured we have all the trophies and medals ready to present as soon as we receive the green light.

In the interim, we congratulate our Perpetual Award winners for 2019/20 and acknowledge them with loud ‘virtual’ applause!

Notice to members

Dear Member,


Please see here: (AGM notice and nomination) our Notice of Annual General meeting to be held on 24 May 2020 at 4pm and which this year will be held by a virtual meeting using Zoom. Details for logging into the meeting will be forwarded to you closer to the date.


We invite any parent who has an interest in joining the committee or being a friend of the committee for the upcoming season to contact the secretary –  secretary@manlywarringahlittleathletics.org.au


We also wish to apologise if you have not yet received your parent duty refund. There has been a prolonged delay in getting cheque books from our bank in these strange times and with some 400 cheques to be completed, social distancing is also proving a challenge for us. Please be assured that we are doing as much as we possible can to get this money returned to those entitled to a refund of their deposit from last season.
