Eastern Suburbs Little Athletics Centre
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 they are ready to join an adult athletics club at age 17.
With the move to the ES Marks Athletic Field in the 2013-2014 season, following the track’s upgrade and resurfacing, the club invested in electronic timing equipment to help our competition nights run more smoothly and to enable athletes to track their performance throughout the season.
With the help of parents and volunteers from The Scots College, 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.
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.
