Participation

Little Athletics is a sport designed for children aged five to seventeen.  They are encouraged to participate in all disciplines with each centre meeting offering a balance of events ie. running, jumping and throwing.

This emphasis on full participation provides every opportunity for young athletes to develop balance, stamina, strength, coordination and self control.  Little Athletics is not about who won, who came second or even last.  It is about encouraging each and every athlete to better their own previous best performances. 

It is about having Fun with friends.  Athletes are grouped in ages and many relationships are developed with others away from their regular circle of school friends.

It is about the Family playing together and growing strong together.  The timekeepers, the judges, the long jump officials are all mums and dads just like you and I.  Many have no previous experience, but without your effort nothing happens.  You might consider gaining qualifications for coaching or sitting for officials gradings.  Every little bit helps our athletes.

It is about developing Fitness in a safe and healthy sport.  Athletics involves training sessions, warm-up sessions, coaching clinics and much encouragement and guidance from committed and caring parents.
