The count down is on to the end of another successful season of Little Athletics, but in saying that we are still running at a high capacity of athletes coming along to join in the fun at the club. The Coaching season this season has had record numbers attending, which has been fantastic to see! This season we have been lucky enough to have 5 x fully qualified coaches and 4 x trainee coaches helping our athletes learn new skills and reach their potential. I think this has been a strength for our club which we hope to continue next season.
With only 1 more training sessions left until the end of 2016-2017 season, please encourage your kids to come along and participating to the max! An amended coaching schedule till the end of season has been loaded to the Training Page - hope to see you all there.J

Welcome to the Balmoral Little Athletics (LA) Club website. We are a well-established Brisbane athletics club for 5 - 17 year olds. Our club is located on the Stanley Rd entrance to the Clem Jones complex in Carina (see map below right).
Little Athletics promotes that it is important to "Be your Best"®. The emphasis is on fun, participation, performance, technique and getting involved with your family in physical and healthy activity. Little Athletics recognises that children vary widely in shape, size and athletic ability, and is thus one of few sports that successfully caters for them all. Each year across Australia, approximately 95,000 boys and girls enjoy the activities that Little Athletics has to offer.
Events / Competition
The events are set accordingly to age groups. Some examples of the events are:- Sprints & Hurdles, middle and long distance running, walks, long jump, triple jump, high jump, discus, shot put, javelin and hurdles. Our competition nights occur on Wednesdays during the season excluding school holidays.
Athletics Coaching and training
As well as offering guidance to young athletes on club nights, coaching sessions will commence on Tuesday 30th August 2016 which will also double as parent orientation. Coaching is available during the season on Tuesdays nights per the schedule on the training page from 6:00pm - 7:00pm. Coaching sessions will cover a variety of events including sprints, jumps, throws and middle distance. All sessions are conducted by qualified Track & Field coaches. There is no additional charge to attend training sessions for fully registered athletes.
