PARTICIPANT AGE GROUPS
Age Group Changes
From the commencement of the 2018/2019 Season, Little Athletics Victoria changed the date on which it determines its age groups, to 31 December. This has direct implications for some of our athletes and parents.
The changes only effect those athletes born during the period 1 October to 31 December. These athletes will progress 2 age groups.
4 year old athletes who are turning 5 years old on or before 31 December 2018 are eligible to participate and compete in Little Athletics activities in the U6 group at the commencement of the 2018/2019 Season. These athletes will progress to U7s in the following season.
Athletes turning 5 years old after 31 December 2018 can commence participation on or after their 5th birthday and will compete as an U6 athlete for this season. They will also be in U6 age group for the subsequent season.
