What is Little Athletics?
It’s all about fun, making friends, family participation and healthy activities. If you thought it’s just for the kids, you are about to find out why the philosophy of Little Athletics is: “Family Fun and Fitness” in a supportive and friendly atmosphere.
Little Athletics is a recreational sport for children from 3 to 17 years and their families.
Little Athletes come in all shapes and sizes, with quite varied levels of ability and skills.
Barossa Valley Little Athletics Centre is one of many Centres in South Australia conducting Little Athletics programmes.
Little Athletics covers all the normal activities that children enjoy, like running, throwing and jumping. What we do is provide these activities in a more structured manner.
All athletes are encouraged to participate in all the events offered each day. The emphasis in Little Athletics is on fun, developing skills, coordination and improving fitness levels.
Our Centre, like all other Centres, comes under the control of the South Australian Little Athletics Association (SALAA). The Association organises various major athletic meetings during the year including championships for the U9-U17 age groups.
All athletes have the opportunity to compete at the SANTOS Sports Stadium, covering Relay Championships, Personal Best Day (Tiny Tots-U17), Multi-Event Championships and State Individual Championships (refer Association and Specific Events section further details).
To provide a safe, supervised, family orientated sporting activity that promotes a fun and healthy lifestyle, for children of all abilities.
Little Athletics is all about Being Your Best. The emphasis is on fun, participation, achieving personal bests and getting involved with your family in physical and healthy activity, so it is not surprising that the motto of Little Athletics is “Family, Fun & Fitness”
