Wagga Wagga Little Athletics Club nights are on a Thursday evening starting at 5.00pm. Age groups will finish at different times depending upon the number of events they compete in.
Our club is run totally by volunteers so your help is vital. We need time keepers, age managers, people to set up the equipment and canteen workers to assist on club nights as well as helpers on the field. Parents are encouraged to assist us in all aspects of the running of our club nights. If you can help out at all, no matter how small, it would be greatly appreciated.
Little Athletics is a family sport – everyone should be involved. Our aim is to encourage children to participate in sport and improve their skills within their own abilities, whilst creating friendships. Children love to run, jump, throw things and have a good time with their friends! Little Athletics is all about fun and participation.
We also have a Facebook page and utilise the Team App to communicate news and upcoming events along with recognising and celebrating the achievements of our athletes.
Little Athletics is a uniquely Australian activity for children aged 3 to 16 years. 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. Each year across Australia, approximately 95,000 boys and girls enjoy the activities that Little Athletics has to offer.
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”.
Little Athletics is the “Foundation for all Sports” as the skills developed at Little Athletics are used in a wide range of sports and activities. 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.
