Melton South Little Athletics Centre was the 96th to join the Victorian Little Athletics Association Inc.
Barry Taylor has been actively involved from the very beginning, setting up Melton South Little Athletics Club in 1969. Shortly after, other clubs were formed – West Melton Zebras, Wedge Park Comets, Coburns and Melton Greens. The Centre was formed in 1973/74 as a result of the vision of some very determined people including Barry.
In 2002/03, the Clubs merged to simplify administration by operating as a Centre only.
As our Competition Manager, Barry still plays a very large part, by planning and organizing the weekly program as well as other events for our Centre. We thank him for his endless generosity of time and spirit. The Centre is forever indebted to him and also the many other volunteers who have organised little athletics in Melton South for the past 42 years. A list of Centre Life Members is included in the handbook.
The current committee members will endeavour to ensure that the vision and determination of those early pioneers of little athletics is continued, for the ongoing benefit of the children and community of the City of Melton. In 2014 in an effort to encompass the entire community the centre changed it’s name to Melton City
