THE Warwick Little Athletics Centre has started its season with weekly competition at Hamilton Oval at Warwick State High School.

Sarah Jenner is the new centre manager and is happy with the early season interest.

"We are attracting 30 or more children each week,” she said.

"Rain caused the cancellation of two days.

"The emphasis is on each child bettering their personal best, not on winning.”

The centre is always looking for more athletes with children aged three to 17 welcome at 3pm-5pm each Sunday.

Children of all ages compete in sprints, throws, walks and jumps. The tiny tots from three to five years don't compete in any race more than 100 metres.

Competitions are every Sunday, including rodeo weekend, before a break of five weeks over the Christmas holidays.

Children can come to two centre days before they decide whether to join up.

Regional relays will be held on November 6 at Laidley with children not involved able to come to the regular Sunday afternoon activities.

Nominations will be taken at centre days in the next fortnight for regional relays.

WHAT: Warwick Little Athletics.

WHO: Children aged three to 17.

WHEN: Sundays 3pm-5pm.

WHERE: Hamilton Oval, Warwick High.

COST: $80 for six-month season for tiny tots, $90 under-6s, $100 U7-U17, no weekly charge.
