Not sure where to begin?
You’re in the right place! We are here to assist, whether you are a returning member or looking to get involved for the first time, and we want to make sure your transition into Little Athletics is as easy as possible.
Why Join Little Athletics?
Little Athletics is a fantastic sport where the entire family can get involved on a weekly basis. Your child will enjoy learning new skills, the excitement of participation and making new friends.
Our emphasis is on Family, Fun & Fitness. Children can join with any level of skill or fitness and are given plenty of encouragement to achieve personal bests (PB’s). Little Athletics recognises that children vary widely in ability, and is one of few sports that successfully caters for all.
Something For Everyone
Little Athletics is for ages 5–15. There is a wide range of track and field events from running, jumping, throwing and walking; modified to suit the age, developmental stage, and ability of the children. In most cases, athletes will participate in four or five events on any given Little Athletics day.
What’s Included in Registration?
With Competition and coaching for an entire year for only $170, Little Athletics is amazing value.
The only extra cost is purchase of a club shirt for $35, worn with sun protection and little athletes’ own comfortable sportswear.
Summer & Winter Seasons
Training and coaching
Membership includes regular (optional) coaching and training during the week. A great way to improve and practice skills outside of competition, and maximise the incredible value of your membership.
