Little Athletics 4 All Starts with a Bang

Little Athletics 4 All Starts with a Bang

Children from all abilities and backgrounds came together on ANZAC Day for fun and fitness at the inaugural Gala Come n Try day at Kingsway Little Athletics Club.

Hailed a complete success, the initiative is a four-way partnership involving Inclusion WA, Little Athletics WA, Kingsway Little Athletics Club and Active After-School Communities.

Over 20 participants attended the first-ever session held at Kingsway Sports Complex on a fine, sunny afternoon. All athletes were able to try a range of activities from running to long jump and javelin.

Qualified coaches from the local club coordinated the session along with many volunteers, giving participants the chance to enjoy the sports in a safe and friendly environment.

“The strong turnout suggests that there is a definite need for this program to be offered in our community. This is a great opportunity for all participants to integrate into the sport as well as the local club environment and it is clear that the focus is on ability and acceptance” Abid Wala from Little Athletics WA said.

“The exciting thing is that this program has such a great range of people from all backgrounds and from all ability levels. The integration and the social aspect of this program are every bit as important as the opportunity to participate in the sport itself” Denver D’Cruz, Inclusion WA.

The aim of this program was to introduce the sport of Little Athletics to a range of children who had not previously experienced the sport. This particular program offers all participants an opportunity to experience the sport and a structured club environment, an element that many individuals from minority backgrounds often miss out on.

The Little Athletics 4 All program will run every Wednesday for the next five weeks from 345pm-445pm with a wrap up on the 30th of May.
