What does Membership cover?2021-11-17T15:33:42+11:00

Membership fees cover all the boring, but important stuff, to keep your kids safe. This includes a non-refundable Little Athletics Victoria Association Registration & Insurance Fee ($89).

Membership fees do not cover our uniform.

If we pay for membership and our child doesn’t like it, do we get our money back?2022-09-09T17:11:07+10:00

In regards to refunds after membership has been paid:
