Olympia Little Athletics Club was formed in the early 1970’s and last year we had more than 130 little athletes competing in our club colours. Over the years Olympia athletes have had a strong presence both within the Melville Little Athletics Centre, and at a Zone and State level.  We welcome new members to come and join us.

Our training takes place on Wednesday evenings – 4:45pm to 6:00pm for U6-U10

Our U11 and over train on Tuesday evenings from 5pm.

We train at Len Shearer Reserve, Booragoon.

This training covers various events each week. Athletes should wear comfortable clothes, joggers, hat, and sunscreen, and bring with them a drink bottle.

Parent Involvement

Your family is most welcome at Olympia and you need to be aware that it is a family commitment.  One parent per family will need to provide assistance on a rostered basis on competition days. Our club policy is that rosters will be allocated one-in-three weeks when only one child in the family is registered, one-in-two weeks when two or more children in the family are registered. Each family is required to sign a parent agreement.

Parent assistance at training on Wednesdays is always appreciated by the coaches.  You can help with setting up the equipment, assist with coaching the athletes in various events, or simply playing a ‘crowd control’ role by ensuring the kids are listening to the coaches and waiting their turn patiently.  Please advise a committee member if you are able to assist in coaching duties, or see one of our coaches at training.
