Kids at ES Marks Athletics Field, Moore Park, Sydney

As the weather warms up, it’s time to get the kids active and outdoors. And what better way than introducing the kids to Little Athletics in Centennial Parklands!

The Parklands is home a world-class athletics track at the historic ES Marks Athletics Field. The track was totally upgraded in 2013 and provides opportunity for casual, seasonal and open night training throughout the year.

Eastern Suburbs Little Athletics

Eastern Suburbs Little Athletics was formed in 1970, and is the second oldest club of its kind in New South Wales.

The Club is based at ES Marks Athletics Field, and caters for children aged 4 to 16 years old. Taking on board the Little Athletics motto of “Family Fun Fitness”, parent volunteers – aided by coaches and assistants – supervise age groups and help run the track and field events.

THe Club focuses on Friday night competition, offering the chance for kids to compete and train in athletics. The Club have found that athletics training on a Friday night suits many families and is a wonderful opportunity for the children to mingle and make new friends.
