Originating in Victoria during the early 1960's, little Athletics was developed for children too young for senior athletics.

 

Co-founder Alan Triscott's idea in 1973, to bring Little Athletics to Queensland, began with several public meetings in Brisbane.

 

As a result of these meetings, Redcliffe Little Athletics was established. The Association has over 120 Centres located throughout Queensland.

 

Athletes participate in weekly competitions at their local Centre across a range of events.

 

The Little Athletics motto of 'Family, Fun and Fitness' highlights that it is a community activity involving the whole family on a weekly basis. Athletes are encouraged to improve their own performances, sportsmanship and social skills, throughout the season.

 

Each of the events offered is age appropriate according to motor development and a gradual process of skill learning, supported by the National Junior Sports Policy.
