Track & Field

Track and Field

Little Athletics gives children the opportunity to have a go at all of the disciplines of Track and Field.

Over the course of the summer season, depending on their age group, athletes will participate in a range of events. U8’s participate in 4 events each week, while all older age groups participate in 5 events. GLAC runs a three-week program, with different events scheduled for Program 1, 2 and 3. See below for details of the weekly programs.

Program 1_2_3

 

Because there are so many athletes competing, sprint races are run in heats. Athletes are placed in heats with others of a similar ability, based on times from previous races. This ordering may change throughout the season.

Results are recorded in all events and can be viewed at the link below (requires individuals to login to view results):
