Little Athletics is a volunteer run, community based, non profit organisation providing athletic opportunities for our children. Our motto is Family, Fun, Fitness.  We aim to strike a balance between development, competition and having fun. Little Athletics is one of the few sports where parents can become fully involved in their child's sporting interests. Our centre has an enthusiastic committee responsible for organising the centre, and we need parents to help out on Saturday mornings at the events.

On Sat mornings, the children go around in their age groups and compete in 4 - 6 different athletic events each week, with an emphasis on personal bests and learning athletic skills and improving techniques. Extra coaching available mid-week.
