"So they were camped out on the high jump mats. You know it was before our carnival and our stuff was set up and needed to be guarded. Then in the middle of the night when it was really really dark, they suddenly heard a whole heap of of thumping and banging. The kangaroos were hopping over the hurdles. That must have been so funny". Riley, Age 12
Welcome to Jimboomba Little Athletics Situated in the semi-rural outskirts of Brisbane, we are one of Queensland's largest Little Athletics clubs with over 500 athletes aged between 3 and 20.
The JLAC Team So what are the best things about Jimboomba Little Athletics? We know that kids come in all shapes and sizes and with very different abilities and unique needs and goals. Some of our kids are national champions. Some of our kids are working on completing a lap of the oval without walking. Most of our kids come because it's fun and they get to make new friends. They spend time with their family and they are learning new skills and getting fit along the way.Improve your skills
At Jimboomba Little Athletics, our Friday nights are very much focused on skills building and improvement. Additional coaching is available throughout the week for those who want it. Our online results hub (ResutsHQ) enables families to track performances and personal bests.
Competition at every level
A skills building program is available for kids aged 3 and 4. Each week they run, jump and throw things with their parents and carers, and there is a reward for each little Tiny Tot at the end of the season.

Come and join us for the Jimboomba Annual Carnival held each year on our grounds at Henderson Road, Jimboomba.
Of course it's a super fun day but we think its a bit special because:The competition is of a high standard.
Our annual carnival typically features athletes from over 25 different Little Athletics centres and well over 400 kids. Mums and dads can join in the action.
Our open events are for anyone aged 18 and over. In the true spirit of having fun and good sportsmanship, this is great opportunity for mums and dads to show your kids what you can (and can't) do. We run a cross country event.
Unique to our carnival is the Jimboomba Little Athletics cross country event for our little (and big) distance runners.
Relays for everyone.
At the end of the day, have your relay teams ready to run! We have U6s running with U17s and relay teams don't have to be from the same club. It's purely for fun at the end of a fantastic day.
