Welcome to the Little Athletics Australia website.
Little Athletics is a uniquely Australian activity for children from 5 to 16 years - some Assocations may offer age groups outside this range.
As the name suggests, it is based upon the sport of athletics (track and field). There is a wide range of events from running, jumping, throwing and walking and they are modified to suit the age and ability of the children.
Little Athletics promotes that it is important to "Be your Best" ®. The emphasis is on fun, participation, performance, technique and getting involved with your family in physical and healthy activity. The motto of Little Athletics is 'Family, Fun and Fitness".
Across Australia more than 95,000 girls and boys enjoy the activities of Little Athletics. Little Athletics is the "Foundation for all Sports". All sports use the skills developed at Little Athletics in a range of aspects of their sport.
Little Athletics recognises that children vary widely in shape, size and athletic ability, and is thus one of few sports that successfully caters for them all.
Each year across Australia, approximately 95,000 boys and girls enjoy the activities that Little Athletics has to offer.
