A Busy Time of Year


With Christmas and New Year's only a few weeks away, Little Athletics Centres around the state are starting to run their final programs for the year. However, we have one last event before we wrap up ourselves.

On Saturday, we will welcome over two-thousand little athletes to Lakeside Stadium for the SUBWAY State Relay Championships. This competition is our largest team event on the calendar and we are looking forward to seeing all the athletes competing for their Centre on the day. We also have a number of different activities planned for the day, so be sure to keep an eye out on our social media channels.

Upon returning to Little Athletics in 2017, we will be hosting the State Multi-Event Championships in Bendigo. Most of your Centres would have held a Multi Round program at the end of November, giving you an insight into how the Multi-Event Championships will work. Registrations for this event will be closing on the 9th January at 11:59pm.

This edition includes:

  • Latest News
  • Competition News
  • Upcoming Events
  • Calendar and Centre Open Days
  • SUBWAY Birthday Card Offer
