Little Athletics Code of Behaviour

The Queensland Little Athletics Association has outlined a “Code of Behaviour” which it hopes will emphasize more fully its role and involvement in the organization and participation of parents and children within the Little Athletics movement.
Parents, coaches and officials by example of behaviour, hold an enormous influence over the youth of the community. Conduct of all adult participants and competing children within the aims and objectives of the QLAA are considered mandatory for the privilege of participation.

Winning is a part of our sporting traditions, but we admire our sporting champions for the SPIRIT in which they play their sport. That spirit stems from our commitment to fair play. As such, the code of behaviour should be shared with your child.
Adult officials/coaches should form an accepted pattern of behaviour from the following for the benefit of the Little Athletics movement.


It isn't whether you win or lose, but how you play the game! Compete and train for the "fun of it", not just to please your parents or coach.


A child's basic training in good sportsmanship comes from the home!


In Little Athletics, these people are mostly Parents temporarily performing a different function.
