Event Description

Play Training Centres are required to provide play-training activities. These activities are recognised as the best way of introducing young children (U6 age group) to the sport. Centres should continue some level of these activities through to U7’s and U8’s as well. The limited number of events considered appropriate by athletics authorities for the Under 6’s in particular plus the requirement to teach them adequate motor skills in a ‘fun’ way means “Play Training” has become a large part of Little Athletics for this group, and a limited but definite flow-on to older ages should also become evident. Track Sprints: Sprinting essentially involves running at full speed over the full race distance. Little Athletics sprint distances are 70, 100, 200 and 400 metres, however U6’s do not run more than 100 metres, and U7 & 8’s do not run 400 metres. Technically 400 metres is a sprint for older athletes, but perhaps best considered a middle distance race for most Little Athletes. Distance: In Little Athletics these are events run over 800m (U9 and older) and 1500m (U11 and older). Greater endurance levels are required and the running style has to be considerably less vigorous than for the sprints. At Centre meets, they are in general run from a pack start in an anti-clockwise direction on the circular track. Hurdles: U6’s to U17’s are offered Hurdle events at Centre and LAQ competitions. The event is run over 60m (6 flights), 80m (9 flights), 90m (9 flights), distance.
