Discover Little Athletics

Little Athletics is a fun, social and active program for girls and boys aged 5 to 16. There is a wide range of events including running, jumping, throwing and walking. These events are modified to suit the age and ability of the children.

Little Athletics promotes that it is important to “Be your Best”. The emphasis is on fun, participation and technique and getting involved with your family and friends in physical activity.

Melville Little Athletics Centre is based at Len Shearer Reserve, Booragoon. This is where we hold our weekly competition on Saturday mornings from October to March each year. We have four clubs that compete at our Centre; these are Brentwood, Leeming, Olympia and Palmyra-Bicton. When registering with Melville Little Athletics Centre you join one of our Clubs and compete for them at our weekly competitions.

At Melville we offer Little Athletics from Under 6 to Under 17. Your age on 31 December determines your age group. For example, if you turn 9 in 2021, you register in Under 10.

Registrations open on Saturday 4 September from the registration link on this website.
