2020 has seemed to make our Little Athletes more eager than ever to hit the track! The Bendigo Little Athletics Committee (BLAC) have been taking the necessary steps required by Little Athletics Victoria (LAVIC) to comply with the new COVID-Safe Protocols. The good news is that once LAVIC has approved our Centre for COVID-Safe competition for the 2020/2021 season, the registration portal will be opened, competition dates will be announced and competition will commence. We are hoping to have more information on this by mid-October. At the BLAC AGM held on 25th August 2020 the following volunteer members were voted into Executive and General Committee positions. We also have TWO vacant Committee Positions that need to be filled. Will you fit the bill?
