Launching Community Kids’ Athletics


Little Athletics Victoria in conjunction with Athletics Australia launched Community Kids’ Athletics on Thursday 22nd February 2018. The inaugural event took place at the Endeavour Hills Leisure Centre with participants from the Emerson School.

Participants were encouraged to get involved in the activities by Athletics Australia facilitators Rupert van Dongon and Corey Pendry.

Community Kids’ Athletics focuses on getting inactive and partially inactive children more active. This is done by having fun with friends learning fundamental motor skills – running, jumping and throwing.

Little Athletics Victoria and Athletics Australia are aiming to inspire a love of track and field events in the next generation of young Victorians.

The program will continue to be trialled around Victoria at multiple locations for the remainder of the year.
