Little Athletics Victoria
A SPORTING PHENOMENON
When Little Athletics Victoria turned fifty, they knew they wanted to honour the many volunteers over the years who had contributed to the Little Aths movement; everyone from the founder of Little Athletics, Trevor Billington, to the hardy few that helped him realise his dream, to the thousands of parents since then who have given up their weekend mornings to record their budding athletes’ times. It was important that the book capture not only the spirit of Little Athletics, but also its achievements and evolution, including the names of athletes and the names and shirts of the many clubs that have made up Little Athletics Victoria for the past five decades.
For this book, we divided chapters by decade, with a timeline running along the bottom of each page to record the milestones. Each chapter covers the chronological history of each decade, but also focuses on particular elements of the organisation. Designed with place-getter ribbons and running tracks in mind, and in the Little Athletics colours of blue and green, this book is a trip down memory lane for many former little athletes.
