Frequently Asked Questions



How good do I have to be?

All you have to do is BE YOUR BEST!

When is it?

Once registered, a program will be supplied. Generally we meet on Sunday mornings at 9:00 for a 9:15 start. Families are encouraged to arrive earlier to help set up. A new season starts in September and runs until late March with a short break over Christmas.

We have officials and chaperones who can assist you with each event. Everyone was a beginner at some stage.

What can I do as a parent?

Little Athletics is an organisation run by parents for their children. There are numerous ways in which a parent can assist. All the equipment needs setting up before a meet and packed up afterwards. Each age group needs a chaperone. You can become a registered official. Each event needs assistance in some way. There is also the staffing of the BBQ and canteen. We rely on parents for the continuing success of our club.


How old do I have to be?

We have our Tiny Tot sessions starting at 3 years of age and continue to Under 17's.


How much does it cost?

Check the General Information page for registration fees. You can "come n try" with no obligation which requires you to register online without making a payment.

A Uniform is required once registered. Shirts can be purchased from the club for $35 each and hats are available for $10.00. Centre uniform is optional for Tiny Tots.

After that, there are no additional membership costs so it is very good value for the season compared to other sports.
