Establishment of AGWP

LAA have determined in the best interests of the sport of athletics in Australia to change the age groups associated with children participating in Little Athletics. The change will align Little Athletics age groupings to the wider athletics community.  In order to ensure a smooth transition, the AGWP has been established and is responsible for reporting and recommending to the Board of Management, the goals and objectives.

 Goals and Objectives of AGWP

– To provide strategic direction and leadership to ensure the smooth transition of age group changes to all stakeholders

– The AGWP will make recommendations in an advisory capacity to the LAA BOM who,will in turn advise the various stakeholders in the Little Athletics community regarding best practise initiatives to ensure a smooth transition to the new age groups.

– Develop a transition plan to ensure athletes are provided an opportunity for State Team representation at the Australian Little Athletics Championships (ALAC) for U13 and U15 athletes. The transition plan will be finalised by the commencement of the 2017-18 summer season.

– Where there are concerns or areas of the sport that may be affected by these changes then the group will make recommendations to provide direction to the affected stakeholders.
