St George Little Athletics Centre offers a range of athletics events on Friday evenings through the warmer months, typically September to March.  We cater for children turning 4 to 16 in 2020.

Children are divided into Age Groups according to their age.  For the 2020/21 Season, children turning 5 in 2020 compete in our youngest standard age group – “under 6”, and so on for the older groups.  We also offer a Tiny Tots program for children who turn 4 during 2020.

The mix of running, throwing and jumping events we offer varies according to age and is set out in Events by Age Group.

Our home ground is Olds Park, Forest Rd, Penshurst where we have access to a 400m track, 110m track, 4 rubber-surfaced Long/Triple jump runups, Javelin runup (grass), 3 Shot Put rings, 3 Discus rings and 3 High Jump stations.  Our grass running tracks are located on premium sporting facilities maintained to a high standard by Georges River Council.

Children are offered a weekly competition program 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 for more details), and there’s a full inter-club Championships program available to all athletes (“under 7” and above), leading to State and even National titles for older athletes.

Our 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).

Online Registrations will open from 15th August – To join our club, visit our How to Join page and follow all the steps there.  When registering, you can use an Active Kids $100 Rebate voucher to reduce your fees. For more information see the Active Kids FAQ.

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 hope you will join us for a fun-filled 2020/21 season of Little Athletics.
