This program is for 3 and 4 year old children. There are no times, places or measurements recorded for Tiny Tots. Tiny Tots will receive a registration number and a Tiny Tots arm patch. Uniforms are optional.
We conduct a 5 event competition most Friday nights during the season- between late August and March. All our u7 and older athletes are encouraged to attend the Regional Relays and Regional Championships - check the noticeboard for details during the season. These championships are the pathway to State Relays and Championships for the under 9 and older. And there are many meets offered by other Centres - check the noticeboard for the full list.
