Little Athletics is an Australian modified athletics program for children from 3 to 16 years of age. Offering a wide range of events from running, jumping, throwing and walking, events are modified to suit the age, development stage and ability of the child.
Little Athletics is the perfect way to improve your running technique for the AFL and Soccer Season, get a better leap for Netball or start your Green & Gold Athletics journey
The Little Athletics summer season runs from October to mid-March. At Woden Thunder we run a meet most Staurday mornings starting at 8.30am.
The focus of Little Athletics is on participation and learning the fundamental movements of running, jumping, throwing, walking and rolling. There is an event for everyone, and athletes have the chance to try them all out. Everyone is welcome to join, no matter their ability. Athletes stay with their age group for the course of the program and are supervised by their age-group manager who keeps the group together and takes athletes around the field to their events for the day.
As athletes get older, more events become available to try such as triple jump and javelin.
Registrations for 2023-24 will open very soon.
