VMA 30+ 2024 membership year registration
Welcome to the new streamlined VMA registration process! This new process is from the same provider we now use for our event registrations (commenced in 2023). There is five years of membership history now loaded in the system which will provide for auto filling of members details which will occur for both membership and event registration.
For any questions / queries regarding VMA (i) the registration process (ii) what the VMA membership entails / what we offer 30+ aged T&F athletes - contact the VMA membership hotline on 0493 724 485. Leave a message and the VMA Membership Officer will be in touch with you.
In addition to a member’s personal details, the registration process also requires the following: -
(i) a ‘Hub’ nomination [response required] – see description and list below; and
(ii) if applicable, the Mid-week venue (primary one) attended [response , if applicable / optional].
For existing and new members, descriptions of both ‘Hub’ and ‘Mid-week venue’ are provided here: -
‘Hub’. An athlete’s ‘Hub’ identification provides for the following: (
i) basis for VMA administrative follow up as required; (note: each ‘Hub’ will also have a co-ordinator),
(ii) is required field for “auto-fill” for registration for VMA events (refer above),
(iii) who they are aligned with for VMA Championship competition (for those who compete in these events). The VMA Championship runs from May to April, an overview of its events is as follows:May 5km track, 10km track, June 6km/8km Cross Country, July 20km Race Walk, 10km Road Race, August 10 Mile Road Run, Winter Track Challenge, Winter Throws Pentathlon, September Burnley, Half Marathon, 5km Race Walk, January Multi-event Decathlon, February T&F Pentathlon, March ‘The Landy’ (200m, 1km, 400m), VMA State Championships, Throws Pentathlon, April VMA Gift.

‘Mid-week venue’. VMA’s Mid-week venues are unique to Victoria; no other state in Australia has them. They provide competition in a social and friendly atmosphere. They operate from Sunday to Friday across a number of locations. Mid-week venues will operate in 2024 as they have in 2023.VMA has athletes who are regulars at one or more Mid-week venues but all VMA athletes are encouraged to get along and experience what our Mid-week venues have to offer. It is also possible to bring friends along as a “come & try”. On the VMA registration form, an athlete who plans to attend one of VMA’s Mid-week venues selects the one they will attend most often.
A list of the Mid-week venues and the nights they operate is as follows :-
|Monday: Casey Cardinia (Casey Mon., Pakenham TBA), Doncaster.|
|Tuesday: Collingwood, Croydon, Glen Eira, Eastern Masters (summer).|
|Wednesday: Aberfeldie, Geelong, Knox, Mentone, Springvale.|
|Thursday: Coburg, East Burwood, Frankston Peninsula.|
|Friday: Echuca-Moama (NEW).|

Both of the ‘Hub’ and ‘Mid-week venue’ selections are of an athlete’s choosing. It is also OK to choose a Mid-week venue that is different to their nominated ‘Hub’.
List of ‘Hubs’ Some ‘Hub’s have VMA Mid-week venues operating as part of them.In the list below, Mid-week venues are underlined and marked with a [V]. ‘Hubs’ that had < 10 registered members in 2023 are marked with a ‘#’.
Notes: (1) ‘Hubs’ with < 10 members will be required to either have a plan to get to 10 or instead align themselves with other ‘Hub’/s. It is expected that the list of ‘Hubs’ will evolve over time based on athletes’ preferences ;(2) “hot of the press”; Casey will be renamed Casey Cardinia following the opening of a new athletics track at Pakenham in the shire of Cardinia.
