The A Division ACC Athletics Carnival will be held on Wednesday 18 September. Students in Years 7-10 will also compete in the annual NAS Athletics Meet on Tuesday 27 August. Both events will be at the State Athletics Centre (more information will be emailed closer to the competition dates). The NAS Athletics Meet gives students a further chance to press for Final Team selection.

We have Specialist Coaches in place for all track and field events. It is very important that the team commits to the program and each athlete gets to as many sessions as possible.

We are all looking forward to a very exciting and rewarding Athletics season!

Run Club

A reminder that all students from Lavalla and Marcellin are welcome to attend any of these sessions. It is recommended that students get to at least one session per week. Students will become more motivated if they get into a routine and feel themselves improving.


  • Tuesdays 7.10am – 8.10am followed by breakfast
  • Thursdays 7.10am – 8.10am followed by breakfast

This Semester there are 3 tiers to the program;

  • Lavalla Group: Coach Lenny Hughes (Level 4 Accredited National Athletics Coach)
  • Intermediate Group: Coach Torren Diletti (State Runner and 4 times ACC Cross Country Champion)
  • High Performance Group: Coach Ben Chamberlain (National Runner and 4 times ACC Cross Country Champion)

Students are to meet on the steps outside the PE office on the Marcellin Campus in their PE/Running uniform. Students are to bring their own bowl and spoon for our team breakfasts afterwards. Hope to see as many runners on the track as possible!

Strength and Conditioning Program

Students in Years 7-12 are offered the opportunity to be a part of the Strength and Conditioning Program.


  • Mondays and Wednesdays Lunchtimes (School Gym)
  • Fridays 7.30am – 8.15am (at the new pool training facility) followed by breakfast

The focus of these sessions is to improve core strength, aerobic endurance and flexibility. This complements everything they might be doing at Club training and over time will improve speed, performance, confidence and help build resilience against injury.

Cricket Registrations

The WACA, in association with the College, are launching the new season with a promotional event at the College on Wednesday 21 August from 3.30pm. All students are invited to come along and join in a free fun training session with prizes, give aways and music. Students should express their interest by coming down to the PE office on each respective campus.
