Little Athletics welcomes young people with a wide range of abilities, skill and fitness levels.
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).
Each season there are also opportunities for Little Athletes to participate in championship events, skills clinics and other great activities.
From 5 years old to 16 years of age
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.
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.
Parents and family can get involved, too.
The Little Athletics in Bendigo is a family-oriented and operated program, where parents and family are encouraged (and required!) to get involved in a range of duties. These duties include helping to officiate events, time-keeping, canteen duty, raking jumping pits, setting-up, moving and packing down equipment and more.
Join the crew. Wear the Uniform
Once a Little Athlete is fully registered it is a requirement to wear the Bendigo Little Athletics Centre uniform. Uniforms can be purchased at the Registration Collection Afternoon or on any competition day. Please contact us for more information about uniform ordering and costs.
The 2022/23 Bendigo Little Athletics Season will commence on Friday 7 October 2022.
The dates for all “Trial Athletes” to attend are the 15th & 22nd October commencing at 8:15am.
