Summer Success

CLAC PBs 2023_edited_edited.jpg

After a shaky start to the season, weather wise, CLAC athletes went from strength to strength! We saw an increase in active committee members, which made for a teriffic and successful season.


Six athletes (Isabel Barrand, Jasmine Cochrane, Matilda-Maple  Cameos-Costa, Jayden Sambell, Ollie Dean and Lily Cochrane) represented CLAC at the Regional Track and Field championships at Doncaster Aths track, and two compete at the State Athletics championships at Lakeside Stadium - Ollie Dean u10s 6th in the 800m, and Lily Cochrane u 17s 4th in the 1500m, 10th in the 200m and 8th in the 400m - sensational achievements!

Lastly, PBs and Club Records were being achieved on a weekly basis, showing the determination of many athletes. In particular, this season saw a renewed focus in the walks events at Cockatoo, with many club records being rewritten.

Thank you to the CLAC Committee and families for making this season an enjoyable one.

Sunshine, smiles, technical and tactical running saw many runners (and families) complete more races than they thought possible! Thank you to the volunteers who made the day happen, and to the families who took part and achieved success! Fantastic running all-round!

Nothing stopped our cross country runners this season! We experienced the broad weather patterns of the Dandenong Ranges over many challenging courses and Handicap races. CLAC had eight representatives compete at the Regional Cross Country Championships, held at Jells Park. 
A terrific experience for all!
We saw Ollie Dean take third in the u9's and Lily Cochrane 2nd in the u16's. 
Ollie and Lily then competed at the State Championships, held at Lake Dewar.
Lily placed 10th and Ollie 4th. Both incredible results! Well done to all of our Cross Country athletes! The CC season will help you greatly for the upcoming summer season.

Cockatoo Little Athletics is a great opportunity to make friends and learn the importance of supporting and encouraging each other. Our emphasis is on an attitude of sportsmanship.

We focus on each individual child's ability and development level.  You might notice incremental changes or sudden improvements in ability.  Everyone is different.  That's what makes the world go round!

At our club we are all about supporting healthy families and in return we hope for your support too.  There are lots of ways you can help.  Big and small.  Its the only way our club can run and continue to grow.
