History

Little Athletics was the inspiration of Geelong local, Trevor Billingham, who noted in early 1960 that lots of Primary School children wanted to participate but were not allowed.  So Trevor Billingham came up with a plan and at the Geelong Oval on the first Saturday in October 1964 with a small group of children he held the first Little Athletics Meeting.

 

This simple beginning has evolved to current Little Athletics.Victorian Little Athletics Association was formed in 1967 and Australian Little Athletics was Formed in Perth 31 March 1972 with the founding members of VIC, NSW, NT and WA. The association, now known as Little Athletics Victoria, has over 20,000 members competing on a weekly basis at 100 Centres across Victoria.

 

Collingwood Little Athletics Club started in 1967 making this our 50th Year.
