Thinking About Joining?

If you are aged between 4 and 17 years why not come and try little athletics.

Dates for our club’s registration days will be listed under Important Dates web page along with registration options.

When does it happen?

Our competitions run over summer. Monday 15th October 2018 is the first night for the 2018/19 season. Events start at 5:30pm at the Newcastle Athletics Field, Smith Street, Newcastle West.

What age group will I be in?

Age groups are determined by the year and month of birth. Click here for age group calculator.

Do I have to be good to compete?

No. Our motto is "family, fun and fitness", with the emphasis on doing your best and competing only with yourself. You can join with any level of skill or fitness.

How much does it cost?

  • Family of 1 - $165
  • Family of 2 - $300 ($30 discount)
  • Family of 3 - $435 ($60 discount)
  • Family of 4 - $560 ($100 discount)

What is expected of my parents?

All children must be accompanied by a parent. Athletes that do not have a parent present may be asked to sit out from events.

Because Little Athletics is a totally voluntary organisation, it cannot operate without the assistance of parents each week fulfilling the many and varied but simple duties required. These include officiating at an event-measuring distances or recording times, managing an age group, recording results,  to name just a few. Little Athletics is one of the few sports where parents can become fully involved in their child’s sporting interests. The night flows more smoothly and the kids have more fun when you are there helping and encouraging.


Do you Run a Tiny Tots Program?

As at August 2018, we are not planning to run a Tiny Tots program for the 2018/19 season.
