Round 1 Season 2019/20

Round 1 - this Saturday 5th October

A warm welcome to our new members and welcome back to our returning members!

We kick-off Season 2019/20 with Round 1, this Saturday the 5th October.

Thanks to our coaches for their time and expertise on Coaching Day - we had a good turnout and hope our Athletes picked up a few new skills to prepare them for a great season. Congratulations to everyone involved in our Come & Try Day which also had a fantastic turn out with lots of new kids trying Mentone Little Athletics for the first time.

Another big thanks to Thomas Mogensen for his fantastic work preparing our handbook again this season - thanks Thomas! Click here to view online.
