Little Athletics is a unique junior sport whose main aim is to promote personal development whilst having fun. This centre strives to promote the personal self-esteem and sporting development of all members. In an effort to foster this we focus on weekly personal improvement.
To encourage athletes to participate, points are awarded to each child on the basis of (1) point for competing on a particular day and (2) points each time a personal best (PB) time, distance or height is equalled and (3) points each time a new PB is achieved. So you don’t have to win each week to be the highest point scorer, simply try your best each week.
Medals are awarded at the end of the season for 1st 2nd and 3rd to the athletes who have achieved the highest point scores in each age group of each sex.
As recognition of outstanding performances throughout the season, all athletes who compete at State Championship level and are active members of the centre are presented with a centre polo shirt and jacket. For subsequent years of representation the jacket is re-embroidered.
