2020-21 Trial Athlete Offer

Please note: the Little Athletics Victoria Summer season (Track & Field) is scheduled to finish in March 2021. You are encouraged to first contact the Centre you are wishing to trial at, to clarify on the date of their last programmed session. If a trial session is still possible your Centre will manage your application through a paper 'Trial Athlete Offer' form.

If you are interested in trialling for the Cross Country season, the trial portal will open in April. Please contact our office for more information and to have your details collected in preparation for our winter season. Once the season has opened we will then send to you the link to complete a trial at Cross Country.
