Little Athletics

Little Athletics SA Clubs will once again be invited to participate at the 2021 Bay Sheffield.

Under 12 and above registered LASA athletes will be offered the opportunity to compete in dedicated Little Athletic events.  All Little Athletics events will be programmed on 27th of December 2021. A draft schedule will be released when nominations open.


  • 120m Boys Little Aths
  • 120m Girls Little Aths
  • 400m Boys Little Aths
  • 400m Girls Little Aths
  • 800m Girls/Boys

The races will be all be handicapped. To improve handicapping, athletes’ times will now be sourced directly from SALAA and will include personal bests and times from the last two seasons.

In handicap running, competitors start at different positions on the track dependent upon their ability. The handicaps are designed to even up the competition, so that the running is more fascinating and unpredictable, and gives everyone a chance.
