Club Background





Our Mission

The mission of the S.A. Little Athletics Association, as a voluntary community based organisation, is to develop children of all abilities by promoting positive attitudes and a healthy lifestyle through family and community involvement in athletic related activities.

Brief History

The Noarlunga Little Athletics Centre was established in 1975 at Morphett Vale High School. We moved to our current venue, Christies Beach High School, in 2012 after 30 years at Wirreanda High School. Over the years we have had athletes forward their skills to a National level. Notable past athletes include Nigel Smart and Ryan Fitzgerald (AFL Football) Pirrenee Steinert (representing Australia at the Olympics) and Jagan Hames (representing Australia in Athletics and winning a gold medal in the Commonwealth Games).

Many former athletes and committee are keeping traditions going by bringing their own children out.

Parental Assistance

Little Athletics is a sport run by parents for their children!


Parental assistance is required each week for the smooth running of the program. (see Parental Assistance in General Information)


Parents can assist each week in the setting up of the events, being a chaperone for an age group, becoming an official, timing or assisting in the canteen or BBQ.


Remember - many hands make light work!
