The Manly Warringah Athletics Centre (CENTRE) incorporating Manly Warringah Little Athletics today, draws its membership from five clubs; Cromer, Manly, Peninsula, Seaforth and Wakehurst. They combine to hold regular Saturday competition and to form the Manly Warringah Centre for Zone, Regional and State competitions.
The CENTRE is an incorporated body, governed by a board of directors and delegates from each of the clubs in the form of an Executive Committee. Meetings of the CENTRE Executive Committee are held once per month and parents of athletes are welcome to attend.
Family, Fun and Fitness are the three main objectives of the Little Athletics movement. Boys and Girls are offered a wide variety of athletic events in a happy environment with the emphasis on achieving personal bests, not necessarily to win. Children are graded by age and ability, so that they compete with children of similar ability. These gradings are continually revised during the season based upon results obtained at CENTRE competitions.
