Introduction to Teaching Little Athletics Skills



The ITLAS is designed to help participants become better placed to assist children to perform basic athletic skills.

The course is great for those who want to know more about the skills of Athletics, so that they may help to coach children, assist at Little Athletics Centres or prepare students for school athletics carnivals.

Participants will be shown how to introduce and teach the fundamentals of each Little Athletics event to beginners.

DURATION: 1 day course – approximately 6 hours

COST: $75.00 per participant (includes coaching resources & certificate)

  • A comprehensive manual is available for an additional $35.00.
  • Participants must be 16 years of age at the time of the course to participate.

The ITLAS is nationally recognised by Little Athletics Australia, however it is not an accredited course. Certificates of attendance will be presented at the completion of the course. Upon request, school teachers can also be provided with a “Teachers Professional Development” document to use the ITLAS towards their required professional learning.

“The course was very beneficial. It was a great help in providing coaching ideas to assist athletes, at all levels.”

“As a PE teacher, this course was perfect as a refresher and certainly taught me a lot of new things that I can implement into my athletics unit. Great course and highly recommend!”

“I would recommend people do it, you do get a lot out of it. It is hands on with all events and it gives you some really good tips on how to help the athletes. The practical component was excellent as it really helped to understand how the athletes feel!”

“Great course, I personally think that a lot more people should give it a go!”
