Come And Try Our Local Little Athletics Club

Little Athletics

Little Athletics is a fun, social and active program for girls and boys aged five to 15 years and Douglas Shire kids are invited to come along this Thursday to try a range of athletic activities, and sign up for the season.

Douglas Athletics is a FAMILY activity in which children learn the basic athletic skills of running, jumping and throwing.

Everyone, regardless of ability is encouraged to participate.  Athletes are encouraged to improve their own personal performance. To achieve this, the Club provides friendly competition weekly. By joining in these activities and learning how to participate in all the events correctly, you will have lots of fun.

Little Athletics is also a FITNESS activity-from simple warm-up exercises at the beginning of each meet, to the actual running, jumping and throwing events.  All Little Athletics activities are designed to help improve children’s fitness and wellbeing.

After each event the athlete is given a ticket recording their performance. These can be pasted into record books (supplied in the registration pack) enabling athletes to record how they are improving and can also be recorded on the LAQ website in the My Results section.   

Little Athletics Clubs recognise the need to preserve the interest and rights of all members, regardless of ability. Talented children are encouraged by the provision of coaching facilities and opportunities to compete in state and national events.  Their opportunities are never at the expense of the other athletes with lesser abilities.  All participants are coached and encouraged to improve rather than to win.

Douglas Athletics is affiliated with Little Athletics Queensland and Athletics North Queensland. Competition is held on Thursday afternoons during School Terms 2 and 3.
