Athletics Term Program

The UQ Sport Kids Athletics term program is offered weekday afternoons during the school term. Our program provides professional athletics coaching for kids aged 6-17 years old, giving kids the opportunity to get some exercise after school and develop their skills in a range of athletics events.

Our athletics coaches fully welcome parents' involvement so please feel free to observe and ask questions while the program is underway.

What are the options?

Lower Primary (6-8 years)

The Lower Primary program is designed to improve movement patterns, which benefits your child in all sporting aspects. Children will be introduced to basic Sprints, Jumps and Throws and will develop on these, through the Term, all while having fun and making new buddies.   

Upper Primary (9-11 years)

The Upper Primary program continues on from the Lower Primary program. The main focus is still on having fun while learning to compete. This program will focus on further improving agilty, balance and coordination through each event with the introduction of Hurdles, Relays and Javelin.  

Junior Athletics Squad (12-17 years)

Our Junior Athletics Squad provides more advanced technical coaching in sprints, jumps and throws, with the further introduction of high jump flop and triple jump.  The squad currently consists of a large number of state and national champions, whose programs are developed through the year to meet competition goals. If you believe your child is eligible for this high performance squad, please contact Patricia Boyle (Athletics Coach) on 0418146844 or patriciab@uqsport.com.au
