How We Run

Our Program

Sandy Little Aths caters for children aged 5 and 16 of all abilities. We offer Under 6 athletes a dedicated coaching program on the in-field on Saturday mornings throughout the season which focuses on an introduction to Little Athletics and developing the children’s motor skills while having fun.

For U7-U9 athletes, we run a skill development program on Saturday mornings for the first four weeks. This program introduces athletes to the fundamentals of the athletic disciplines. After the initial four weeks, we have dedicated coaches for each event that provide coaching and instruction to help the athlete develop their skills.

For our U10+ athletes, we have coaches for each event that provide guidance and input to help the athlete continue to develop their skills.
We have 3 program of events that are rotated on a weekly basis. Our Calendar highlights what Program Number we are running on a particular day and what events it includes.


Sandringham Little Aths runs two session each Saturday.  Under6 (U6) to Under 9 (U9) age groups start warm-ups at 8:15 for their session that runs from 08:30 – 10:00am.  Under10 (U10) to Under 16 (U16) age groups start warm-ups at 9:45 for their session that runs from 10:00 – 12:00pm.

Parent Volunteering

Parent volunteers are essential in the running of our program.  Because Sandringham Little Aths is a totally voluntary organization, we cannot operate without the assistance of parents each week in fulfilling the many and varied duties required, including staffing the canteen, measuring long jumps, recording throws, to name a few.

Volunteering at Sandringham Little Aths also allows parents to be fully involved in their child’s sporting interests.
