Western Blues promotes ‘Family, Fun and Fitness’. Our athletic events aim to develop good sportsmanship, develop athletic skills and help build the self-esteem of each athlete in a safe environment.
Our Committee promotes a Child Safe Centre that complies with the Australian guidelines. We are dedicated to providing a fun environment where kids can learn new skills in family friendly surroundings. We welcome all children regardless of their athletic ability or skill.
We encourage each child to achieve their own personal best and aim to assist your child develop their sporting abilities as well as increase their fitness. Little Athletics is also a place to make new friends.
Little Athletics is run during the summer months. Our Club Competition nights are on Friday nights, starting at 6.30pm.
Each Club Competition night we do need parents to volunteer to help run an age group, record the results, help out in the canteen and unpack/pack up the equipment. Little Athletics centres do not operate without the assistance of parents and volunteers. We encourage all parents to help out to ensure that the Centre runs smoothly. We encourage all parents to become involved, especially parents who were Little Athletics members themselves or who competed in sports.
Little Athletics NSW is the governing body for all Little Athletics centres. Little Athletics is one of the very few sports where parents can be fully involved in their childrens sporting development and get involved beyond the spectator level.
We cater for children 3 -17 years of age.

A Note For New Parents
If your child joins Little A’s in Tiny Tots, then all the children are new and have never done Little A’s before – their experience and skill level is all the same. If your child is joining an Age Group where the athletes have done Little A’s for a year or 2, and your child has not, please give your child time to settle in and time to learn what to do. It doesn’t matter who comes first or last. If you want your child to do athletics they will need time to run through each event a few times until they feel comfortable. Every child is different. We do not place more value on the athletes that can run faster or jump higher, they all deserve the opportunity to have a run and develop their skill. We simply encourage all children to do their best. Western Blues is a club which offers the opportunity for your child to learn and experience athletics is a relaxed environment. Each child’s end of season results is based on THEIR personal bests for the season not who comes first or last.
A Note For Returning Parents
All athletes need to register and pay for their fees to get their Centre numbers and sponsorship badges. We implemented a ‘No Number/No Result policy in October 2016. That is, athletes who do not have their centre numbers on their uniforms, will not have their results recorded. When athletes do not have their centre numbers displayed on their uniforms it makes the recording the event times very time consuming and causes all events to run late. The Friday night volunteers are not expected to remember all the athletes numbers. Every Friday nights times and distances are entered into LA NSW Results software. This is entered via the athletes number, not name. If your child goes to Zone or Region they will need their full centre uniform on, centre numbers and sponsorship badges to be eligible to enter the competition.
