Our Season Fees 2020/2021 consist of an LAVic fee which includes insurance cover for Track and Field and Cross Country seasons and a Sandringham Little Athletics component that covers the administrative, operational and equipment costs associated with running the centre. (Includes weekly coaching sessions).
We are currently finalizing our fees, and will announce them once the return to play is approved by the State Government and Little Athletics Victoria.
Trialling Little Aths
If you are unsure if your child would enjoy Little Athletics, but wants to give it a try, you can do so without any financial commitment. We welcome families who are unsure about Little Aths to have up to 2 trial sessions with us during any Saturday meet. You must sign up through the LA Victoria Registration Portal but you don’t pay anything ….just select ‘trial’ when prompted.
Currently with COVID restrictions in pLittle Athse we are yet to be advised on a start date for 2020. You can express interest however in joining the club by sending us an email at [email protected].
Age Group Calculator
All Little Athletes compete with other children of their same age. The age group for your child is determined by the year of their child’s birth. The age group will be the next number above the age which your child turns in 2020. For example, a child that turns 10 in 2020 will be in the Under 11 group. For more information, please visit LA Victoria Age Group Calculator.
