Little Athletics is a family activity, in which children from the age of 5 to 16 learn the basic athletic skills of running, jumping and throwing.
Little Athletics is a fun activity in which all children, regardless of ability, are encouraged to improve their own personal performances. To achieve that goal our Centre provides friendly competition on Friday evenings. Play training and other coaching activities take place during the week. By joining in these activities and learning how to participate in the events correctly, your children will have a lot of fun.
Little Athletics is a fitness activity which consists of simple warm up exercises preceding each meet, coaching sessions and participation in the actual running, jumping and throwing events. All little athletic activities are designed to help improve your child's fitness and well being. Not all competitors can be champions and this philosophy applies to all sports. For the majority of our members we want to emphasis the philosophy of "IMPROVE" rather than 'WIN".
To better our own personal performance in whatever we attempt is undoubtedly a step forward and a basis for good mental and physical health.
