LITTLE ATHLETICS

Little Athletics introduces children between the ages of 8 and 13 to track and field activities.  The programme offers a series of competitions that promotes a "Be Your Best" attitude.  The emphasis is on fun, participation, performance and improving technique.  The aim of the programme reflects WPA’s mission and particularly focus on developing children of all abilities by promoting positive attitudes and a healthy lifestyle through family and community involvement in athletic activities.

Objectives

  • Sign up 500 athletes per event
  • Develop the skills and techniques of junior athletes
  • Offer track and field competition throughout the year rather than the current short season
  • Provide an opportunity for all junior athletes to participate in competition regardless of ability or previous representation
  • Give coaches the opportunity to monitor athletes and find ways to improve performance
  • Assist athletes who do not have a coach to connect with potential coaches/clubs
  • Provide an opportunity for WPA Scouts to identify potential future world class athletes
