Age Groups

We cater for children as young as 3 through to 17 years of age.

As of the 2018/2019 season an athlete’s Age Group is determined by their age on the 31st of December.
The LANSW Age Group Information Handbook highlights the implications of this change.

Tiny Tots
Tiny Tots participate in playtraining events.
They are taught gross motor skills with an emphasis on fun and learning basic athletics skills.
* Children who are two years of age and have not yet turned three are not permitted to join Little Athletics until their third birthday.

Under 6 To Under 17
These Age Groups are put into gender based groups with an Age Manager.
They follow a program of events including throws, jumps, sprints, hurdles, middle and long distance.
Children are grouped strictly according to their date of birth – there is no flexibility to change Age Group.
