Kumon Under 6 to Under 8

Little Athletics Teams Challenge

The U6-U8 Teams Challenge is a fun event where our youngest little athletes get the opportunity to participate in team events against little athletes from other Little Athletics Centres. Activities are based on game like activities that teach fundamental movements and motor skills. These activities involve competition but are done with modified rules and specifications to emphasise the focus on fun and participation rather than individual performance.

This event is based on the developmental age appropriate guidelines as set out by both Little Athletics Australia and Athletics Australia. These guidelines recognise that children are not small-scale adults, and that the performance of a child is not a clear indicator of future adult performance.
