ONLINE REGISTRATION

REGISTRATION OPENING SOON: Again this season we are offering only online Registration and Payment which speeds up the Sign On process. We will be using the LAQ IMG system this year. You will still need to collect your gear, select uniforms (can be purchased online - hopefully), and, for new families, provide proof of age - please try to attend one of the Sign On/Collection sessions in late August for best result (yours and ours), or come along up to 20 mins. before any meeting to complete the process. If you register before midnight the Thursday before sign on day, we will have your gear as ready as possible (uniforms to be fitted) on the day.

Why Little Athletics?

Mainly ... because it develops a variety of skills, it's relatively inexpensive and it provides fun for the whole family, but there's lots more. See below 'Participation'. For special features of our Centre, click here.

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.
