About Wakehurst Little Athletics Club

Wakehurst Little Athletics Club is a member of the Manly Warringah Little Athletics Centre

Welcome to Wakehurst Little Athletics Club

You may be aware that the Olympic motto is “Citius, Altius, Fortius“. These three Latin words mean “Swifter/Faster, Higher, Stronger.” You may not be aware, however, that the Olympic Creed is “The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well”.

Our wish at Wakehurst Little Athletics is for children to simply “take part” and enjoy the process and the achievement of becoming faster, higher and stronger. The Club has a proud 48-year history of assisting children to develop their unique skills in a safe, positive and family friendly environment where the number one goal is having fun whilst becoming fit!

We are the largest Club of the five in the Manly Warringah Centre which was one of the founding members of Little Athletics NSW in 1970. To maintain this prominence and support our goal of our 300+ athletes, requires a great deal of help from parents with duties at weekly training and at competitions on Saturdays. For some this may seem like a burden, but we encourage you to see it as an opportunity to “take part” and share in the experience of your children achieving a personal best.
