At Little Athletics, our emphasis is on Family, Fun & Fitness. Children can join with any level of skill or fitness. Ringwood also has a multi-class athlete group for athletes with disabilities. Children are encouraged to achieve personal bests (PB’s), giving each and every child the opportunity to continue to improve and earn bronze, silver and gold medals throughout the season.
Interested in trying Little Athletics? If you haven’t previously joined an Athletic Centre we offer free trial given you an opportunity to try athletics on two (2) trial competition days to see if athletics is right for you. If you would like to try aths for the first time, please complete the online trial registration. Once registered for your free trial simply attend our trial competition days (usually weeks 1 & 2) to give aths a try. Our season start has been affected by the COVID pandemic, so please be patient as we finalise everything before our first week of competition planned for Saturday 28th November, 2020. For any further queries please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
