DOU­GLAS Lit­tle Ath­let­ics is all about the motto of ‘‘fam­ily, fun and fit­ness’’.

The club aims to de­velop chil­dren of all abil­i­ties by pro­mot­ing pos­i­tive at­ti­tudes and a healthy life­style through fam­ily and com­mu­nity in­volve­ment in ath­let­ics ac­tiv­i­ties.

Over the course of the sea­son ath­letes are en­cour­aged to im­prove their per­for­mances, sports­man­ship and so­cial skills with each of the events be­ing age-ap­pro­pri­ate ac­cord­ing to mo­tor de­vel­op­ment and a grad­ual process of skill learn­ing.

Chil­dren con­trib­ute to their own ac­tive and healthy life­style through a range of fun ac­tiv­i­ties such as play train­ing, weekly cen­tre com­pe­ti­tions and par­tic­i­pa­tion in var­i­ous Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Queens­land com­pe­ti­tions.

Trea­surer Chris­tine Cal­lan­der said Lit­tle Ath­let­ics is some­thing the whole fam­ily can be a part of.

‘‘Upon join­ing ev­ery­one be­comes part of the Lit­tle Ath­let­ics fam­ily, with chil­dren par­tic­i­pat­ing in a range of track and field events, fam­ily mem­bers can be in­volved in many dif­fer­ent ways such as coach­ing and amin­is­tra­tion roles,’’ she said.
