  Interested in joining Sherbrooke Little Athletics?  Here's an overview....

What is Little Aths?

A weekly activitiy where your child (aged 5 -15 years) can participate in several different athletic events, such as 100m running, shot put, long jump etc.

FREE try out

We offer a two week FREE trial to see if your child enjoys Little Aths.  Just come along one Saturday morning and give it a go.

Sporting Ability

Our emphasis is on Family, Fun & Fitness. Children can join with any level of skill or fitness. Children are given plenty of encouragement to achieve personal bests (PB's).

Time commitment

Saturday mornings from 8:45am.  We are usually all done by 11:30am. 

Optional skills training is offered on a Wednesday evening.

Parent Involvment

Because we are a totally voluntary organisation, we cannot operate without the assistance of parents each week.  You can  help to officiate an event; manage an age group; record results; work in the canteen; etc.  You'll find getting involved in your child's sport is a lot of fun too!

Season length

Summer season (Track & Field) is October - March
Winter season (Cross Country) is April - August

If you choose to compete in both season, your annual fee covers both! 

Uniform

No formal uniform is required.  We ask participants to wear black shorts/sports pants and a plain coloured T-shirt (avoid patterns/prints/branding).  These items can be purchased at stores like K-Mart or Target.

We also have club tops which can be worn at special events.

Recognition

Awards are given throughout the year.
All athletes, in both Summer and Winter programmes, receive an end of year trophy (if attendance is at least 50% in the season)

Age Groups

To find out which age group your child is in, visit the Little Athletics Victoria website.  Check here.
