The Little Athletics (LA) program is based around the three elements of competition events: running, throwing and jumping, with a motto of Family Fun and Fitness. Training sessions vary from warm up and strength exercises to game play and skill drill workshops.

But there is another side to LA that builds on a foundation of invaluable life skills and prepares the next generation to achieve success. The feeling of a belly full of butterflies, ears pricked anticipating the starter and steely eyes focused on the finish line conditions participants to think on their feet, be alert and have a goal.

Registrations for the 2019-20 season open on August 3, with a ‘come and try’ morning on the Tin Can Bay School oval from 8.30 – 9.30am. “The official Summer Season starts in October so registrations will be taken over the next few months,” explained Centre Manager, Jess Milne.

Open to athletes 5 to 15 years old with a Tiny Tots program option for kids aged 3-4. Get Started vouchers are accepted and there is also a trial period option. For more information email ccla2014@outlook.com or call Jess on 0411 218 254.
