Little Athletics is a great way to introduce your child to sport in general.  Athletics activity develops co-ordination, flexibility, speed, endurance and strength through walking, running, throwing and jumping.  Winning is not everything at Little Athletics.  The main emphasis is on participation, fun, fitness and striving to improve your own performance. 
Our club meets weekly on Friday nights from 5.00pm.  Our season starts 10th October and runs until the end of February with a four week break over Chirstmas.  Dates for the season and details of our programme can be found on our website www.warrnamboollittleathletics.org.au.
