Little Athletics caters for boys and girls aged between 6 and 17 years of age.  Each year, the registration period is from 1st October to 30th September the following year. A child’s age group is determined by the child’s age on 1st October. A birth certificate must be sighted by the registrar to demonstrate proof of age for all new registrations.

Each athlete registered to compete at Melville Little Athletics Centre is registered as a member of one of the five clubs that compete at the Centre in the summer competition.

An athlete will remain in the same age group for the summer season (October to March) and the following winter season (April – August). Athletes registered for the summer season are automatically registered for the winter season and may participate in the winter competition. An athlete may register for the winter season only.
