About Us

Wantirna Little Athletics Club was formed in 1968 and is one of the 8 clubs affiliated with the Knox Little Athletics Centre.

Our membership of athletes and their families mostly come from our affiliated local schools in Wantirna and Wantirna South. However, you do not need to be associated with these schools to join Wantirna LAC.

All athletes are welcome at Wantirna LAC.
