North Mackay Little Athletics (NMLA) Centre was formed in 1984 and is the longest operating club in the Mackay region. We are affiliated with Little Athletics Queensland (LAQ) and operate under their policies and guidelines. NMLA is one if the biggest Winter Season Centres outside of Brisbane with 80+ athletes registered last season.
Little Athletics Centres differ from the traditional amateur clubs in that we cater only for children aged 3-17yrs. We provide not only the full sized athletic equipment used by experienced athletes but also a range of smaller 'custom built' equipment and specifically designed events to enable smaller children and novices to learn the basics of these events. We cater for children of all abilities and skill levels.
About Little Athletics
Little athletics started in Victoria in the early 1960's and came to Queensland in 1973. Today more than 13'500 children participate at 122 Little Athletic Centres throughout Queensland.
Our aim is to provide a community activity involving the whole family. Mum and dad can help with the events as their children participate and thus making many new friends along the way.
Little Athletes are able to develop the fundamental skills of all sports, speed, endurance, coordination and strength through running, throwing, jumping and walking whilst in a fun and social environment. Emphasis is placed on 'having a go' and improving personal best performances.
MEET THE COMMITTEE
NMLA have a committee of 11 members who assist in the running of the club. There are no paid positions within our centre. All offices held are voluntary and are decided through democratic voting. All parents and children donate their time gracefully and ask nothing in return, except to see athletes attempting to achieve their goal.
