St George Little Athletics Centre is a member of the Little Athletics Association of NSW and offers a range of running, hurdling, jumping and throwing events. Distances, heights and weights vary with age.
Children are offered a weekly competition program from September to March which encourages participation and self-improvement, not just winning. They can view their results online each week and have the satisfaction of seeing their performances improve week by week. General and specialised coaching sessions are available (see our Coaching page and Newsletters for more details), and there’s a full Championships program available to all athletes, leading to State and even National titles for older athletes.
Our competition season runs through school holidays except for the Christmas-New Year break. See our Calendar for more details. Weekly competitions will be held each Friday night from 6:00pm to approximately 9:00pm (much earlier finish for younger children).
Our home ground is Olds Park, Forest Rd, Penshurst where we have access to a 400m (grass) track, 110m (grass) track, 4 rubber-surfaced Long/Triple jump runups, Javelin runup (grass), 3 Shot Put rings, 3 Discus rings and 3 High Jump stations.
For competitive events, children are divided into Age Groups according to their year of birth. For the 2020/21 Season, children turning 5 in 2020 compete in our youngest age group – “under 6”, and so on for the older groups.

Little Athletics programs rely heavily on parent involvement. In common with all Little Athletics Centres we do require parents to fill a variety of roles on a regular basis, including officiating at events, assisting in the canteen, placing and adjusting hurdles on the track and so on. We will ask you to make that commitment when you register your child(ren), and during the season we’ll be asking you to select and signup for a specific duty via our ‘Sign-up’ website, which you can access via the button below.
We look forward to a successful 2020/21 season of Little Athletics.
