Eastern Districts Little Athletics Club hosts a uniquely Australian sport for children aged 3-17 years. As the name suggests, it is based on the sport of athletics (track and field) and the events are specially modified to suit the ages and abilities of children. A wide range of running, jumping, throwing and walking events are conducted.
Little Athletics recognises that children vary widely in shape, size and athletic ability, and is thus one of few sports that successfully caters to them all. Each year across South Australia, approximately 6,000 boys and girls enjoy the activities that Little Athletics has to offer.
'Little Aths', as it is affectionately referred to by those who enjoy it, is not really about winning, but about having fun, making friends and getting families involved in healthy activities. Given this emphasis, it is little surprise then that the motto of Little Athletics is 'Family, Fun, and Fitness'.
