Little Athletics is a modified athletics program for children of all abilities aged 3 – 17 years. It is based on a wide range of track and field events including: running, jumping, throwing and walking.
We offer activities all year round! Our Summer Season consists of Track and Field events at local Little Athletics clubs and our Winter Season offers Cross Country and Race Walking. Our Season Membership gives you access to participate and train at your local club, as well as the opportunity to participate in the Summer and Winter Season State Competitions and Championships!

How To Help At Little Athletics: Little Athletics is a sport that is heavily reliant on parents and volunteers to assist each week so our great athletes can participate in events successfully! To ensure new parents or individuals feel confident to help at their club, Little Athletics SA have produced a “How To Help At Little Athletics” -- Parents Handbook to help!
Sports Voucher: If you are primary school aged, did you know you can claim $100 off your Little Ath’s membership?!?
Officiating: Volunteers are central to what Little Athletics does and every Little Athletics club across the state needs a team of dedicated volunteers to act as officials. Find out how to get involved as an official!
Coaching: To ensure athletes can participate in athletics successfully, coaching is essential for athlete development! There are a number of non-accredited and accredited coaching courses available, which are suitable for anyone (parents, older athletes, volunteers, teachers etc). Find out how to get involved as a coach!
