Life with kids in St George
St George Little Athletics is a member of the Little Athletics Association of NSW and offers a range of running, walking, hurdling, jumping and throwing events. Distances, heights and weights vary with age. Children are divided into Age Groups from Tiny Tots to Under 17 according to their age as at 30th September.
Children are offered a weekly competition throughout summer which encourages participation and self-improvement, not just winning. They receive stickers each week and have the satisfaction of seeing their performances improve week by week. General and specialised weekly coaching sessions are available subject to the availability of coaches (check fortnightly newsletter or the clubhouse information board for more details), and there's a full Championships programme available to all athletes, leading to State and even National titles for older athletes.
