“Be the best that you can be”
Gympie Amateur Athletics Club is associated with Little Athletics Queensland as well as Queensland Athletics (QA).
This allows our club to have athletes of all ages!
Little Athletics is a sport that is based on family, fitness and fun. Athletes learn the basic fundamental skills of running, jumping and throwing and each activity is modified to suit the ages and abilities of different children. Little Athletics is a family activity which includes athletes from the age of 4 to 16 to participate. It is a fun activity regardless of the athletes’ age and ability are all encouraged to improve on their personal performances and “Be Your Best”.
Little athletics consists of a warm-up, running, jumping and throwing activities which are all designed to improve your child’s fitness and wellbeing.
After these athletes have graduated from Little Athletics (age 16) they can then stay with our club and participate in Amateur Athletics. There is NO AGE LIMIT! Which means anyone can come and participate in our fun activities!
