Committee Message

Welcome to the 2018-2019 season. We extend a warm welcome to families who are new to Little Athletics and to our Club. We hope that you will find Little Athletics and enjoyable and rewarding sport.

Bankstown Sports Little Athletics is a well respected successful Centre which has a well-deserved reputation as a high performing and family oriented centre with a caring approach towards our athletes.

Little Athletics is a family activity. The Athletes cannot conduct the events themselves; so we require the involvement of parents each week to help with the running of the program. There are no paid officials at Bankstown Sports Little Athletics; we are all parents, ex athletes or relatives of the registered athletes.

The philosophy of the Little Athletics movement is summed up in the slogan:-
“LITTLE ATHLETICS… FOR… FAMILY… FUN… and… FITNESS” and we at Bankstown Sports
Little Athletics continually strive to demonstrate that, combined with FAMILY involvement..
FITNESS can be… FUN in the happy environment of a Little Athletics centre.

For the athletes, the emphasis is on personal improvement and participation in a wide range of track and field events. We encourage athletes to be their best with an emphasis on reaching their potential through regular participation. Everyone can reach their potential through regular participation.

We are grateful for the support we receive from Bankstown Sports Club, who is our major sponsor and strongly encourage you to join the club and reciprocate their support of our children. The benefits far outweigh the small cost of membership.

Please read this information guide thoroughly, as it outlines how our Centre operates, our expectations and what you can expect from us. It also lists the events on offer and other activities open to the athletes as well as closing dates for nominations and entries.

Again, welcome to all athletes and parents and we hope you enjoy your time with us.
