Diversity & Inclusion

Little Athletics develops children of ALL abilities, providing a warm and inclusive environment for all young people to be their best.

There are no specific disability Little Athletics Centres in WA, as the activities and events are designed to be inclusive and adaptable to all. LAWA is working with Centres in the Perth Metro. region to support the coaches and volunteers to ensure that young people with physical or intellectual limitations can participate in little Athletics.

Visit our “Information for Parents” page for more information on joining a Little Athletics Centre.
