Huon Valley Little Athletics is part of Little Athletics Tasmania, which is part of an Australia-wide organisation providing modified athletic track and field events for children competing in under 6 to under 15 athletes. Events are conducted on a Saturday morning with occasional Wednesday evening meets. Tiny Tots is held for ages 3 & 4.
Huon Valley Little Athletics follows the Little Athletics Tasmania mission statement, to develop children of all abilities by promoting positive attitudes and a healthy lifestyle through family and community involvement in athletic activities.
The motto of FAMILY, FUN & FITNESS is at the forefront when competition meetings are held. Parents, brothers, sister, grandparents and carers share the action. Parents or guardians are required to assist in the running of events to enable competition to run smoothly.
Each week there is a set program of events including running, jumping and throwing. As each athlete completes an event their results are recorded and over multiple weeks they can track their personal best performances as they improve in confidence and skills.
