Souths Little Athletics has been in existence for 30 years and still going strong. Here at Souths this sport is unique in a way that winning is not what we are all about.
Little Athletics, is a uniquely Australian activity for children from 5 to 16 years - some Associations may offer age groups outside this range.
Through Little Athletics, athletes are able to develop skills of running, jumping, and throwing in a fun and soical environment. The emphasis for young children participating in physical activity should be placed on self-improvement and learning social skills to help address important issues such as child obesity, self-image and esteem.
Souths Little Athletics Centre encourages and requires parent to also be involved in the sport. Help make your children's experience more rewarding by actively involving yourself in the activities at Souths Centre, from simply raking the long jump pit right through to Centre Manager. Every little bit helps and your involvement will help improve the product that our Centre tries to provide to all its members.
