Little Athletics started in Geelong in 1964 and in 1969 Brighton was the 63rd centre to join to the Victorian Little Athletics Association , now known as Little Athletics Victoria. At competitions for State and Regional Championships, athletes wear the Brighton colours of royal blue and orange with the number 63.
Originally, the centre was divided into 4 clubs with athletes competing in clubs according to the school they represented. The club concept was abolished in 2012, which has helped to facilitate the ‘Team Brighton’ motto when we represent our centre with pride at regional and state events.
Over the years, the Brighton Little Athletics Centre has grown a reputation for our focus on family, fun, fitness and friendship. With our grass track ideally suited to growing bodies, we continue to strive to create the best possible environment for young athletes, regardless of their ability. We certainly would love your child to come on board.
More information about the rich history of Brighton Little Athletics can be found here in a penned history of the centre as compiled by Judy Pfanner in 2009 to celebrate our 40th year.
Our Club Constitution
A Centre meeting was held on Wednesday 29th November, 2014 to accept the final version of the constitution that enables the centre to become an incorporation. All proposed changes were accepted and the new constitution can be viewed below.
The Brighton Little Athletics Centre constitution is based upon a 'model' produced for all clubs by LAVic with a few minor changes to reflect how we operate at Brighton.
The Honour Board
