Family, fun and fitness
Douglas Little Athletics
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.
