WHAT IS LITTLE ATHLETICS?

Little Athletics is a uniquely Australian sport for children – Tiny Tots 3 and 4 years of age and 5-16 years (U6 to U17). Little Athletics is the Foundation for all Sports. It offers young people activities and skills that will stand them in good stead for their sporting future.

MISSION STATEMENT Little Athletics aims to develop children of all abilities by promoting positive attitudes and a healthy lifestyle through family and community involvement in athletics activities.

PHILOSOPHY The philosophy of the Little Athletics movement is summed up in the slogan: ‘LITTLE ATHLETICS – FOR FAMILY, FUN and FITNESS’

Maroochy Little Athletics Centre is run by a team of dedicated Volunteer Committee Members who are assisted during weekly meets and competitions by dedicated Parents to ensure that each child has fun, improves on their own personal goals and is given a fair go no matter what their ability. Throughout the season athletes are encouraged to compete in other competitions that we and other centres host. 

Keep an eye out for notification of competitions posted on the Centre noticeboard and this website. Further questions regarding competitions see our Team Manager at the Centre on Friday nights. Only athletes registered with LAQ are eligible to compete.
