National U15 Camp


In September/October each year, Little Athletics Australia (LAA) hold a National U15 camp over four days at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) in Canberra.

LAA will select the highest performing athletes in each event nationally. Offers for attendance at the camp will be made based on performances at each State’s Track and Field Championships (unless an athlete has missed the Championships, through injury or another legitimate reason prior to Championships, then an application for consideration can be provided to LAA, through the State Association).

Selection will be by invitation only and is at the discretion of the LAA National Camp Organising group.

This is a great opportunity for athletes to be coached by some of Australia’s best coaches, and to receive expert training and education in a range of areas, both physical and theoretical.

Considerations for the 2019 National Camp have been made for athletes affected by the age group changes. This will mean more athletes will be selected for the camp – 100 athletes to 125 athletes (25% increase). Athletes who progress from Under 13’s to Under 15’s in the 2018/19 season will still be eligible for selection.
