Little Athletics is all about fun, fitness, family and at Team Caulfield we add participation. We want to see all of our children having fun, making friends, improving their fitness and foundational skills of running, jumping and throwing. Little Athletics is not about being the fastest or strongest, it is about doing your best and continually improving week on week.
Team Caulfield details
- $220 to join for the season. Also budget $35 for a running top if you are a new athlete.
- Training – Team Caulfield offer the best little Aths training in the state and do so at no extra cost to our members. Training is fully optional. This season training will be held on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday nights –5:30pm to 6:30pm.
- Competitions are generally held on a Saturday morning, with an arrival time of 8.15am for warm up, a program start time of 8:30am and a finish at 11:00am. We will have some fun Friday night competitions on long weekends this season too.
- Team Caulfield also offer the wonderful On Track program which provides a framework for our 5 and 6 year old athletes. This has become hugely popular. Our On Track offering includes optional training Monday and Wednesday nights and a shortened competition morning from 9:00am to 10:30am on Saturdays which is a mixture of fun and educational games and competitive events.
- Inclusion Policy – Little Aths can be inclusive for all children. Team Caulfield are moving into our sixth year operating under our Inclusion Policy. If you have questions regarding levels of physical and mental ability then please contact our Inclusion Officer Sarah through email firstname.lastname@example.org to see how we can work with you to ensure all children can participate and have fun at little aths.
- Parents/Carers need to understand that they are an important part in keeping our sport moving forward. Parents are required to be present at competition and training. Parents are expected to do duty when required – at a minimum, 50% of the meets that your children participate at. It’s not scary, you don’t need to be an expert, and it’s actually great fun to be involved with the children.
If you’d like to know more, wish to lend a hand or have any questions please call our Registrar Claire – 0459 701 065 or email email@example.com. We look forward to getting back on track with you soon.
