Yarra Ranges Athletics

Little Athletics (U6-U17)

Little Athletics - 2 seasons a year.

Summer season – October to March

First round of the Yarra Ranges Little Athletics 24/25 season will begin early October 2024. New and returning athletes will be able to sign up for the exciting new season from late August. Please join our newsletter (can you add a link to sign up for the newsletter here) or Facebook page ‘Yarra Ranges Athletics Clubhouse’ for regular updates.

In summer, Little Athletics is held at Morrison Reserve Athletics Track from 8:45am-11am on a Saturday morning. Athletes (under 6 to under 17) rotate through five events in their age group. The events are a mix of running, jumping and throwing.

Age groups are defined by the age of the child on the 1st of January. Children aged 8 on the 1st of January 2024 will be in the under 9 group.

Some coaching is provided and we encourage athletes of all abilities to strive for their Personal Best (PB). The focus of our athletics club is to have fun and learn as they go. Athletes will improve at their own pace in a supportive group under the supervision of age group leaders, coaches and club members.

Come along and have a go! Or join at any time for a two week free trial.

Winter season – April to September

In winter Little Athletics moves into cross country mode. Each Saturday morning, it rotates through four local parks. Athletes run between 500m and 3000m depending on their age.
