'5s and 6s' Section

What Is '5s and 6s' Athletics?

(Information updated July 2023)

The focus of our programme for 5 and 6 year olds is on developing correct fundamental athletic skills - running, jumping and throwing.  Many of the activities will be presented as games but all have basic athletic skill acquisition at their core.  Emphasis is on skills and techniques relevant to sprints, shot put, discus and long/high jump.

'5s and 6s' keen on some (age-appropriate) competition are encouraged to attend weekend Ribbon Days held at other clubs throughout the season.  These are advertised in our weekly newsletter.


'5s and 6s' caters for all girls and boys born between the 1st of January 2017 and the 31st of December 2018.

  • Grade 5:  Born between 1st of January and 31st of December 2018
  • Grade 6:  Born between 1st of January and 31st of December 2017

If your child was born on or after the 1st of January 2019, they will qualify for the ‘Tiny Tots’ section. If they were born before the 1st of January 2017, they will qualify for the ‘Junior’ section. Check the separate tabs on our website for information about these groups.


'5s and 6s' sessions are held on Wednesdays, 4.45 - 5.35 pm.  First night for the 2023/24 season is WEDNESDAY 11th OF OCTOBER 2023 but new members welcome at any time.

The cost for the season (11th October 2023 to the 3rd of April 2024) is $83 per child.
