January 23 update - championships season

Championship season is upon us. Last week we had the 800m championships and this week it's the 1500m championships at our Thursday twilight meet.

A reminder that all athletes may compete in championship events but only Hobart Districts registered athletes with at least 25 events are eligible for ribbons.


General Information

Little Athletics caters for children from 3-16 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.
