New Athlete: 2 Week Free Trial

Registering for a new sport can be a big commitment and we want to make sure you are comfortable before paying a season’s registration fee.

Children who haven’t been a member of a Little Athletics Centre previously are invited to trial 2 competition days of Little Athletics – free of charge – before committing to full membership. This gives everyone involved a good understanding of what Little Athletics is and how the weekly events operate.

Before participating in a trial, there are a few things you will need to do and some other things we recommend doing.


Before participating in a trial, you will need to complete several tasks to ensure you are prepared. You first need to determine your nearest Centre and if you have several Centres nearby, which one you would think you would like to join. Determining factors of which Centre you join can come down to which days they operate their Little Athletics day, what track surface they have and whether you have any family or friends at a Centre. This is completely your choice.

You will also need to determine which age group your child(ren) will be in. Our age calculator will help you determine which age your child(ren) belongs to. You will be asked to provide the age groups during the online registration process and will be alerted if the date of birth entered doesn’t match the age group selection.


Before participating in a trial, we ask that:

a) Read the trial athlete policy below.
