It’s time to run, jump and throw as Season 2023-2024 for Little Athletics and Athletics Bendigo starts this weekend!
Little Athletics is open to children who are 5 years of age or older, and who are 16 years of age or younger at the end of the calendar year in which the summer season commences.
Rotating activities each week
Little Athletes participate and compete weekly with their friends, learning the many disciplines of athletics. These disciplines include running (sprinting, hurdles, endurance running), jumping (long jump, high jump, triple jump) and throwing (discuss, shot put, javelin).
Come and Try
Little Athletes who have not been a member of a Centre before are warmly invited to take part in a two-week FREE trial period. This gives everyone (including the child, mum, dad and / or guardians) a good understanding of what Little Athletics is and how the weekly events operate.
For athletes who have grown out of Little Athletics (or are older and just keen to run, jump and throw!) we have a weekly Saturday track and field program that covers all disciplines. Each athlete can score points for their club which contributes to their overall score in the AVSL competition. (AVSL stand for the Athletics Victoria Shield League.)
The program is managed by accredited officials and is welcoming of people of all ages and stages.
