What Is 'Tiny Tots' Athletics?
The focus of Tiny Tots sessions is on developing fundamental movement skills - walking, running, skipping, jumping, landing etc. as well as manipulative skills such as throwing and catching. These are the same skills that are used in athletics, but taught through entertaining games and using fun equipment.
We don't teach our Tiny Tots to throw the discus or shotput or to long jump or high jump. There is plenty of time to learn how to do these events as they get older. Instead we help the children develop age-appropriate skills including working as a team, following instructions, taking turns, sharing and being a good loser (and winner).
Who Can Join?
All girls and boys born on or before the 31st of December 2020 are welcome to join the Junior Track and Field section. Tiny Tots caters for 2-4 year olds:
(If your child was born before the 1st of January 2018, they will qualify for the ‘5s and 6s’ or ‘Junior’ sections. Check our separate tabs on the website for these group.)
Tiny Tot sessions are held on Wednesdays, from 4.45 to 5.35 pm, at the Yvette Williams Track at Lloyd Elsmore Park. Sessions for the 2022/23 season start on WEDNESDAY 19 OCTOBER 2022 but new members are welcome any Wednesday.
The cost for the season (from 19th October 2022 to end of March 2023) is $75 per child.
