The Kerryn McCann Athletics Centre will be closed from the 1st of March 2017 for 13 weeks.
Wollongong City Council is upgrading / resurfacing the athletics track and is also changing the colour,
we will soon have a BLUE track!!
The track is expected to reopen early June 2017.
Due to the track resurfacing Wollongong City Little Athletics has only 2 more competition nights left:
17th and 24th February 2017
24th February is also a special night as we will be farewelling some of our under 17 members who have been part of our club for many years. Part of this celebration will include a free BBQ.
WCLA members have the opportunity to compete at neighbouring clubs until the end of the season. Check the local clubs website for more details regarding their competition.
Northern Illawarra competes on Friday afternoon, Dapto competes on Thursday afternoon, Lake Illawarra competes on Friday afternoon and Albion Park also competes on Friday afternoon.
WCLA member point score will end on the last night of our competition on 24th February 2017.
If you have a WCLA state track suit, please bring your jacket in on 24th February , for this year to be added on to the jacket.
If you have made the State Team for the first time, please see Nicole Link, Nicole Mawson or Nicole Lenartowitz for sizing of your tracksuit on the 17/2/17 at the track from 4.30pm onwards.
There is only a very short turnaround time to get the tracksuits back before the State Championships, so it is important that you are sized or bring your existing jacket on 17/2/17.
On the 24/2/17, the athletes who have made the state championships will be required to be at the track by 5.00pm for the state team photo.

your help with this great club fundraiser is appreciated:
Click the link below to find out when we need your help:
A group of Wollongong Little A’s donated some time last weekend to help out at Figtree McDonalds to raise money for the Kidz Wish Foundation.
Club coach Chris Twigg, along with Jack, Zoe, Hannah, Chloe, Rosie, Elenor, Olivia and Zane helped collect some much needed funds for sick kids in the Illawarra.
All money raised from the Helping Hand Program will be put towards KidzWish’s ‘You Raise Me Up’ campaign – an initiative to fundraise for a new KidzWish Place to deliver therapy services to local kids in need.
The collection tin was very heavy by the end of their 2 hour shift.
