Welcome to Armidale Little Athletics 

Encouraging FAMILY, FUN AND FITNESS

Our primary aim is to bring together athletes and their families in a range of outdoor physical activities with family involvement. Family involvement is of paramount importance. Not only do parents get to share in their child’s enjoyment, but they get to see their child develop new skills in the variety of events offered by the centre. At least 1 parent/caregiver per family is required to actively assist each week.

This season sees the Armidale Athletic community come together with the “ONESPORT” theme. This sees both Little Athletics and Armidale Athletics conducting their weekly events on the same day. This season sees a much stronger emphasis on athlete development by utilizing the expertise and skills of the senior club (lead/driven by Jay Stone). A development session in week 1 followed by a competition in week 2, repeated through the range of events for all age groups. The earlier new year start also better supports continued development towards our regional championships in Tamworth. Our Summer Carnival (the only one in the Zone) is the week before Regionals, also aimed at better supporting athletes preparing for regionals.

Armidale Little Athletics runs events for U/6 through to U/17. The emphasis at all times is on “run for fun” and improvement of athletes’ own performances. A secondary objective is to provide athletes with a chance to compete at Zone, Regional, State, National and International levels.

Our competition time for all age groups is Wednesday evenings (starting after September School holidays) from 4:15pm (warm up) at Harris Park, Armidale. Athletes are encouraged to participate in warm up, as this is a vital part of development activities and competitions. Even the youngest athlete risks injury without sufficient warm up, no matter in which event they participate. All age groups from U/6 to U/17 do structured athletics development and competition events each week.

We appreciate assistance with setting up from 4.00pm

Best wishes,

Armidale Little Athletics Committee
