Following advice from our national athletics body we have decided to cancel our last competition night this Friday (20 March).
On behalf of the committee and age managers we hope that everyone
in your family and our extended athletics family stays safe and healthy
in the current environment. There will be no presentation/award night. Our award winners have now been announced on our Events & Results page, as well as our social media outlets. An arranged time will be announced for anyone wishing to pick up trophies. McDonald and Regional Certificates will be posted out.
Online registration is now available for new, returning and transferring athletes by clicking the ‘REGISTER ONLINE’ button below. It is recommended that you register online before attending a sign on day. If you have any troubles use our GUIDE TO REGISTER ONLINE for more information and to help guide you through.
IMPORTANT: All athletes must be financial registered members of Little Athletics Noosa before they can compete in any event.

Little Athletics Noosa offers activities for 5–16 year olds, while our senior club Noosa Athletics, caters to athletes aged 13 and over.
Athletes are encouraged to do their best each competition night with an emphasis on family, fun and fitness.
Little Athletics Noosa holds regular competitions on Friday evenings from 5pm at the Girraween Sports Complex in Sunshine Beach, starting in September through until March the following year.
More information about Little Athletics Noosa can be found by clicking on CENTRE INFORMATION or by viewing our Centre Handbook.
The regular Little Athletics Noosa meets are held on Friday nights, from September to March. Athletes sign-in at 5pm, a group warm-up is held from 5,15pm and events start at 5,30pm. The Friday night competitions are held at the Girraween Sports Complex, Eenie Creek Road, Sunshine Beach.
There are also opportunities to compete in inter-club competitions. The main events each year are the Regional Relays in November, and the individual Regional Championships held in February. From U9 onwards, athletes participating in Regional events can qualify for State Championships.
Registration can be done online or at a sign-on day.
On-line registration usually opens in early August. Payments can be made online using credit card, and packs can be collected from the office on sign-on days or once competition begins.
There are 2-3 sign-on days held at Girraween if you want to come in person to ask any other questions regarding our events etc. We can also answer any questions you may have about marshalling, measurements and competition rules, to make it easier for you to earn back your parent helper levy.
The registration fee is $195 for the first child, $185 for the second and $175 for the third child, with a maximum family registration amount of $650. Four-year-olds may only participate in our Tiny Tots program if they have older siblings registered in the U6-U17 age groups. Our Tiny Tot fee is $75.
In addition, there is a $60 parent helper levy. This is fully refunded if you help out in some way at 50% of Friday night competitions (usually 12 nights). As we (like other Little Athletics clubs) depend entirely on volunteer input, we need parent helpers to assist with a number of fairly easy tasks each week to allow competition to take place. Just don’t forget to sign your parent helper book each time you help out!
There is government funding assistance for eligible athletes/families through the ‘Get in the Game’ funding program. Details can be found at:
Yes, and athletes need to wear these for Friday night competitions. The uniform consists of a polo shirt (cost $40), and either black bike pants or black shorts ($32). Athletes who are U13 or above have the option of the singlet (for boys – $35) and crop top (for girls – $45) instead of the polo shirt. Girls crop and bike pants sets can be purchased for $85. Athlete registration numbers and age group patches must be attached to the relevant part of the top (especially for regional/state competitions – Little Athletics Queensland is very strict about this!). Please also note for official competitions that shorts cannot have visible brand logos or coloured stitching. Further details are available in the competition handbook.
