November 12 update

Good weather on Saturday was the perfect recipe for a big turn out at John Turnbull Oval = 163 athletes. Let's hope for more of the same for the rest of the season.

Congratulations to Evie Bingham who broke the Hobart Districts U11 girl long jump record at the Southern Centre Challenge and then again on Saturday.

  • U11 girls long jump. old: Hawi Bowerman 3.79 m (2016/2017); new: Evie Bingham 4.01 m, then 4.09 m.

See you at JTO for program 3 this coming Saturday.


General Information

Little Athletics caters for children from 4-16 years. The coming 2018/2019 season will be the first with the new age group structure - see the tab below for details.

The home ground of Hobart Districts Little Athletics Centre is John Turnbull Oval (JTO) in Lenah Valley. Our normal competition time is Saturday morning from 8:30 until about 10:30-11. We also sometimes have twilight meets on Thursday evenings from 5:30 until about 8pm.

The main track and field season goes from October to March and the majority of our competitions are at JTO. Some weeks there are competitions involving centres from across the state and these are held at the Domain Athletics Centre in Hobart, St Leonards in Launceston, or Penguin on the North West Coast.

Visit our competition calendar for local Hobart Districts events as well as state events.

From April until September, Little Athletics Tasmania runs a cross country competition at various sites across Greater Hobart. See their poster for dates and locations.

Registration details and an age group table are below.


New Age Groups for 2018 / 2019

The main change for the upcoming season is that age groups will align with the calendar year (Jan-Dec) instead of the Little Athletics year (Oct-Sep).

Current athletes who were born Oct-Dec will increment two age groups whilst current athletes born Jan-Sep will increment one age group, as usual.
