Sport has a very special place in Australian society. We are proud of our sporting tradition. We look up to our champions and we remember and respect the sporting heroes of yesteryear - a great many of whom are revered for their deeds on the Athletics field. Winning, of course, is a vital part of tradition - but not as important as the spirit of Australian.sport. And that spirit stems from our commitment to fair play.
The Australian Sports Commission has developed Codes of Behaviour for use in sporting programs. Little Athletics is a community activity utilising athletics to help foster the development of Australia's children, and as such, totally endorses these Codes for all its participants.
