The Fields – A Brief History
Studfield Little Athletics Club was formed in 1968, one of the foundation clubs of the Knox Little Athletics Centre which began in September 1968. The club was made up of students from Studfield Primary School. (Studfield PS merged with Eastfield PS in 1994 to become Yawarra Primary School).
In 1972 a new club was formed and joined KLAC for the 72/73 season. This club originated from Eastfield Primary School (now Yawarra) and was named Eastfield Little Athletics Club. This became one of the largest clubs in the Centre and at one stage had over 130 athletes.
In the 95/96 season Studfield and Eastfield merged to become a new club called Eastfield/Studfield Little Athletics Club (‘The Fields’).
Our feeder schools are now officially Knox Central, Wantirna South, Templeton and Knox Gardens Primary Schools but we welcome athletes from many other areas too, including some suburbs not even in Knox!
