Senior Athletics

I'm new to Athletics, how do I get started?

Firstly – is athletics for me?


Athletics offers a diverse range of activities suitable for everyone.

Athletics encompasses more than just running, with our summer season featuring a variety of events. Whether you prefer walking, jumping, throwing, or combined events, there’s something tailored to your strengths and interests.

– If you are a beginner, athletics can provide a fun and supportive environment to get active and improve fitness.

– If you are an experienced athlete, the sport offers numerous opportunities for you to achieve your goals.

What does Athletics Victoria offer? Which competitions can I compete in?

Athletics Victoria organises a variety of events and participation opportunities for members.

XCR/Winter: Our inter-club cross-country competition offers members a chance to come together with their club and fellow runners at a variety of locations across Victoria. There are multiple divisions available to suit different abilities – so anyone can join in! Also, your club will receive points when you participate.

AVSL/Summer: Our inter-club track and field opportunity, AVSL, is a great way to try new events and earn points for your club. AVSL is a fun way to become more involved in athletics – with multiple divisions available.

Club Meets: Many clubs host club meets throughout the summer. Club meets are a great place to start your athletics journey and build new skills.
