Welcome to Youngtown Little Athletics Club

We are one of the founding members of the South Launceston Centre and have maintained strong working relationships with both Youngtown and Punchbowl Primary Schools over the years. A large proportion of our athletes derive from these schools, however we do have athletes who attend other schools in the area.

We have an energetic committee that subscribe to the Little Athletics motto of Family, Fun & Fitness providing a friendly and relaxed environment for our children to compete. Our commitment is to provide an environment for our children to stay fit and healthy whilst making lifelong friends and having fun in the process.

If you are interested in joining our club or you would like further information, please ring one of our committee members listed below or email us.

Thank you for considering Youngtown Little Athletics Club for your child/children.
