Woy Woy Little Athletics will start its season of weekly competition on Friday, October 9.

The season will run through to March.

Woy Woy Peninsula Little Athletics caters for children aged between 5 and 17 years of age, of all abilities.

No experience is necessary.

Children are simply encouraged to achieve their personal best and improve their performance over the season.

Subject to them qualifying, children who participate will have the chance to compete in the zone, regional, and state championships.

Competition is held at McEvoy Oval, Umina, every Friday night from 6 pm during the summer season.

All registered athletes must wear the approved uniform when competing in Little Athletics competitions.

The uniform is sky blue, royal blue and bright yellow, and patches must be applied in the correct places on the uniforms, which may be purchased through the centre at the start of the season.

Appropriate footwear is compulsory for all athletes in all events.

No athlete may wear football boots or cleats in any event.

Children are organised into age-based gendered groups that are determined by date of birth.

Activities are coordinated by a volunteer age manager and follow an age-appropriate rotating program of track and field events that include a mix of running, throwing and jumping.

The weekly competition is usually finished by around 7.30 pm.

The centre is a non-profit organisation that raises funds through registration fee and operates through the support of our local community with a team of volunteers.
