Q. Where and When is Little Athletics Held?

A. In 2022/23, Little Aths will be held at Morse Park, Durham St Bathurst. Sessions will be held on a Monday night from 5pm in age groups.

Q How long does Little Aths Go for?

A. In any given Monday evening, each age group is assigned 4-5 events to work through. There is a three week rotation of events so that after the three weeks, you have completed all the events for your age group.

Most comp nights will usually include a sprint, 1-2 field events such as long jump or shot put and then a longer track event. Your Monday evening will conclude once these events are completed. For most age groups it usually is done within 90 minutes of commencement and is usually dependent on parent help.

The event list becomes broader as our athletes get older. 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, 3000m, Hurdles, Long Jump, Triple Jump, High Jump, Shot Put, Discus, Javelin are all included in the U13 program and older. 

 

Q. What are your season dates?

A. For season dates, please check our the EVENTS/DATES Tab of this page. 

Q Does your club have a Tots Program?

Yes we do! Our Tots program also commences at 5pm and includes games and skills that lead into our U6 Track and Field program. Tots will usually complete a sprint in any given evening and usually by the time the end of March rolls around they have attempted at least one 200m event. 

Tots will commence on October 10 this year. Parent help is needed and one parent must be present with each Tot in the program. 

Q What are the expectations of Parents?

A. At least one parent or carer is required to stay on site each club night. Regardless of whether or not this is your first involvement as a Little Athletics parent, it is always worthwhile, at the start of each season, to consider what your role will be over the next six months or so.

Little Athletics is a voluntary organisation, clubs cannot operate without the assistance of parents each week in fulfilling the many and varied duties required. These include officiating at an event; managing an age group; recording results; working or helping with set up, supervising the age group, raking a pit, to name but a few! 

Little Athletics is one of the few sports where parents can become fully involved in their child’s sporting interests. It is also a great social event with parents chatting amongst each other whilst helping their little athletes grow and develop their skills.
