Welcome to the Norwood Little Athletics Club
Norwood club is one of the original clubs at the South Launceston Little Athletics Centre.
We are committed to offering a safe happy environment for Athletes to compete in, promoting the Family Fun & Fitness message for everyone involved. We have a continued close association with Norwood Primary School where many of our past and present athletes have attended.
Scotch Oakburn and St Thomas More’s are our other primary feeder schools where a number of our younger athletes attend.
Parent involvement is essential to the running of the club with many of our parents having roles on the committee and being officials and coaches. Any new parents will be supported with attending coaching and officials courses.
