Little Athletics

Little Athletics is a program designed to address the specific physical requirements of children in the 5 - 6 year old age bracket, focusing on introducing the fundamentals of athletic movement to children in a fun, exciting and noncompetitive environment.  This age group has been identified as the fundamental stage in the long term physical development of the child. In addition the development of skills such as agility, co-ordination and balance will contribute greatly to future sporting achievements.  Little Athletics centres on the use of games to provide fun while developing fitness. Props such as hurdles, obstacles, medicine balls, foam javelins and hula-hoops will be used to encourage tumbling, running, throwing, hopping and jumping.  The Little Athletics programme is delivered by Athletics Coaches - adults, trained as coaches by Athletics Ireland  Little Athletics takes place every Tuesday, 5-6pm, in the Duleek Parish Hall and Centre.  Children should bring drinks and clothing appropriate to prevailing weather conditions.  Subs: €3.
