What is Little Athletics?
Little Athletics is a uniquely Australian sport for children aged 5-16 years. As the name suggests, it is based upon the sport of athletics (track and field) and the events are specially modified to suit the ages and abilities of children. A wide range of running, jumping, throwing, and walking events is conducted.
Little Athletics is the Foundation for all Sports. It offers young people activities and skills that will stand them in good stead for their sporting future.
Each year across NSW, approximately 40,000 boys and girls enjoy the activities that Little Athletics has to offer.
The track & field based competition is conducted throughout the summer sports season. Events are conducted on a weekly basis by one of our 200 individual centres, and include:
Sprints – 70m, 100m, 200m
Distance – 400m, 800m, 1500m, 3km
Hurdles – 60mh, 80mh, 90mh, 100mh, 110mh , 200mh, 300mh
Walks – 700m, 1100m, 1500m
Jumps – Long Jump, Triple Jump, High Jump
Throws – Shot put, Discus, Javelin
One of the basic reasons for the continued development and enthusiasm generated by Little Athletics, has been the attempt to meet the needs of children as part of the family unit.
Little Athletics is more than a sport. It is a community-oriented organisation which enables the entire family to do something together.
Parents are involved in the program as voluntary helpers or officials. They share in many experiences with the children.
Little Athletics provides a vital communication bridge between parent and child. This link can have benefits far beyond the years spent in the centre. Society has, increasingly, produced subtle and damaging pressures on family and community relationships. The FAMILY CONCEPT approach to programming counteracts those pressures.
