Kyneton Little Athletics is gearing up to get its kids back on the track.

If lockdown restrictions permit a return to community sport, the athletics club will start its season on Saturday, October 9, with registrations now open for all kids aged five to 16.

Kyneton Little Athletics president Ashley Fraser said he was looking forward to providing a way for young people to keep active and enjoy themselves.

“Athletics is a sport that you can continue to be involved in for your whole life,” Mr Fraser said.

“Many elite athletes only started in their mid-teens and we have lots of former club members who have gone on to join one of the many senior clubs in the region to continue their training.

“Our main concern is the safety of the children, however we are hopeful with the correct COVID protocols and with the cooperation of our members that we can get the kids outside and running around in the beautiful Kyneton spring weather.”

Ms Fraser said Kyneton Little Athletics Club experienced a 24 per cent increase in membership last year, earning them an award from Little Athletics Victoria as the highest growth club in the northern country region.

The registration fee is $132 with discounts available for family purchases.

The season will run until March 2021.
