Get kids active with Mini Athletics in Portsmouth

Childrens Classes, Clubs & Classes

Mini Athletics in Portsmouth is a fun athletics based class for children from walking age to 7 years!

We teach the basic skills of running, jumping and throwing which helps to improve sporting competence and confidence. Classes encourage creative play, following instructions and sharing – all while receiving lots of encouragement and praise!

At the end of each class, every child has a chance to stand on the podium to receive their sticker, and of course a round of applause from their fellow Mini Athletes!

Why is Mini Athletics so great for children? 

– Every lesson is different

– Games include colour matching and imaginative play

– Children become more competent in athletic movement and develop skills that can be used across all sports

– Socialising and making friends

– Increased confidence!

As children get older the complexity of the class increases and we encourage more team based activity with an element of competition, which is vital for any budding athlete!

Our “Mini” class also includes training in specific events such as the javelin, high jump, long jump and shot put.


Our classes are split by age group:

Teeny – walkers to 2 years

Didee – 2 to 3.5 years

Little – 3.5 to 5 years
