About Us

Welcome to ESLAC

Eastern Suburbs Little Athletics

From September to March each year ESLAC offers boys and girls, aged 4 to 17, the opportunity to learn, train and compete in a full range of athletic events. Our regular Friday night competitions take place at ES Marks Athletic Field where we aim to continue the Field’s 100-year tradition of community-based athletics participation and competition.

The Junior program (Tots aged 4, Under 6s and Under 7s) starts our youngest members off with programs that will develop their coordination, athletic skill and confidence. As our young athletes progress through the age groups, the events in which they participate also progress until, as seniors, they are eligible for dual membership with an adult athletics club.

ESLAC uses electronic timing equipment to accurately time our track events and with the help of parents and volunteers, results from competition nights are uploaded to our online database where Personal Best performances (PBs) are flagged for each athlete and a full history of individual results is available 24/7 via Results HQ

What Happens on Friday Night? Each Friday night in the season (see the ESLAC Calendar) our registered athletes turn up to participate in the events scheduled for that week. Parents/carers take their Little Athletes to the age group marshalling area in front of the bbq where they find their age group flag and catch up with their Little Athletics friends. That gives the parents/carers some time to help set up equipment at the various event locations. The ESLAC Coaches/Age Managers will take the Little Athletes around the track to start the warm up, then the Little Athletes are warmed up and the Events Program is ready to start. The parents/carers come back from helping set up equipment and then join their age groups to help out the Age Manager and follow their Little Athletes around the field and enjoy the evening.

  • Our Tots to Under 8s event is scheduled from 1730-1830
  • Our U9s to U17s event is scheduled from 1830-2000

ESLAC runs a 6 series events program that cycles the age groups through a full range of events over a 6-week rotation. Take a look at ESLAC Event Series 6 to see a typical events series and visit our Events Offered page to see the full range of events on offer at Eastern Suburbs Little Athletics Centre.

The emphasis for all age groups is on fun, friendship and participation but the great thing about Little A’s, as Little Athletics is affectionately known, is that all this is achieved at the same time as our youngsters transform from tots into the athletes of the future.
