The Trial Athlete Offer (also known as “Come & Try”) is designed for children who haven’t been a member of a Little Athletics Centre previously and wish to have a go.
At Team Caulfield you’re invited to 1 competition trial and 1 training trial – 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.
We ask that you email our Assistant Registrar Julie at email@example.com who will send you out information on how to register for our Trial Athlete Offer.
You are welcome to come to a competition day on a Saturday morning. Take a look at our Season Calendar for a date that suits your family.
We recommend arriving at the track before 8:15am for a 8:30am start to allow some extra time to check in. Competition usually finishes around 11:00am depending on the program.
On competition days athletes take part in a range of track and field events depending on their age, and the focus is on athlete improvement and personal bests.
Athletes are in their age group for the morning (e.g U7 Girls, U7 Boys) and are supervised by an Age Group Manager and Assistants who are parents with children in that age group.
Please note that our Under 6 program is called On Track and is an LAVic program that is designed to develop skills rather than as formal competition.
Training is held at the track on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 5:30pm to 6:30pm during the summer season.
Training is coached by high level coaches to assist in developing children’s athletic skill across all events.
As a trial athlete you can register for your trial training session by emailing Claire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions please email our Assistant Registrar Julie at email@example.com.
